Do you have the passion and ambition to grow your ERP skills using a revolutionary production model? Do you thrive in an environment of using metrics to make real-time decisions and improve your productivity?

With the NetSuite team you will be part of the team being shaped to implement NetSuite and to also integrate any newly acquired companies onto the central NetSuite instance. You will assist with architecting and implementing across the global business while also defining and developing a central data structure to support complex finance flows.

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING

As an ERP Chief Software Architect you will join our client organization and be in one of two teams.

One team is responsible for the setup and daily running of the NetSuite implementation. In this team you will be responsible for the operational aspects of NetSuite, configuration, and supporting the day to day business needs. You will also be architecting and implementing a NetSuite solution across a global business. You will define and develop a central data structure to support complex finance flows. As an ERP Chief Architect you will work with the key stakeholders to design functions and prototypes for implementation.

You may also join a Salesforce implementation team where our team is constantly making improvements to the Salesforce workflow and integrating with other systems in the organization.

Our client organization is constantly acquiring new companies and, therefore, another team within the central engineering function is responsible to integrate newly acquired companies into the implemented NetSuite or Salesforce version. If you join this team you will largely work on the integration of data from the acquired company into the implemented NetSuite or Salesforce instance. You will write functional requirements, design functions, build prototypes, and implement, test, train, outline support procedures, lead work streams, and do the implementation.

 
REMOTE CAMP PROGRAM

To apply for a role at Crossover, you will go through a series of online tests, usually during the online hiring event. If you pass these tests, you will be offered the opportunity to participate in our four-full-time week Remote Camp training program. This is elite training taught by our top instructors.

Here’s what our graduates have to say about Remote Camp,

"I am very pleased to say that because of Crossover's unorthodox and unique way of transferring the knowledge through (Paired sessions, coaching sessions with CSMs), I have never been more confident in my technical skills and abilities for my role."
-Mikael F

"The CTO Remote Camp was another thing that motivated me. I wanted to see how CTOs across the globe work and learn from them."
-Javed Z

"I've been with the company since Aug (been part of the second Remote Camp) and since then I've learned SQL, databases, servers, tapes, other content management systems etc- and that's only been in 3 months. Usually when I'm in a new company, I learned a lot about their platform, their tools etc during the length of my time with them but never at this speed!"
-Monnaliza T

It is offered as soon as you want to get started. You will be compensated for 40 hrs/ week at the hourly rate for the role you are applying to. Remote Camp training is an excellent opportunity to learn about our culture, expectations, tools, processes, and procedures. It's an intensive and demanding program, but every graduate is guaranteed a job at the end of it.

Questions
and Answers

  • How can an ERP Chief Architect get promoted to new roles?

    If you are a top performer in your role then it is possible for you to apply to new roles and move up the career ladder. From a Chief Architect role you may apply for a Software Engineering Manager role then progress to VP of Engineering. The possibilities exist and your career path is only dependent on your performance.

  • As a ERP Chief Architect, what are the opportunities to learn and work with new technologies?

    The learning responsibilities belong to you and are endless. Chief Architects are expected to be versatile in various technologies and open to learning new tools and new technology stacks. Chief Architects are also expected to be innovative and identify new technologies which can be leveraged to automate manual tasks and therefore freeing up time for more intelligent and interesting work.

  • What does a ERP Chief Architect day look like?

    A standard day in this position is typically comprised of the following tasks: a short daily check in with your manager to review blockers which you may have and request assistance when needed, a commitment to your manager on what you are going to achieve that day, potentially a short team meeting to review overall team progress, working on your actual tasks as set for the team.
    Once a week you can also expect to have a coaching session on your performance as well as demo your work to our internal or external clients.

  • What is the main challenge for this role?

    The main challenge is the accelerated growth through Acquisitions and ensuring we maintain our vision of ongoing simplified central infrastructure that is an enabler for acquisitions.

  • How can Finance work in a 100% remote model?

    As many companies move to a shared service center concept, have remote offices, merge international teams together, Crossover embodies all of this and, taking advantage of our cloud-based systems, we go one step further enabling every Crossover worker to do so remotely.
