Manager Feedback:

We are looking for someone with data architecture experience.  Don't consider the solution architect experience to be equivalent as the focus of someone on that role isn't the data model and how it drives business decisions. Looking for exposure to building a data warehouse so that they know what they'd do differently. Prefer they've interacted with the business (i.e., stake holders) and can communicate in their language so that they can interpret what they need to make better decisions. I'd like for them to have managed people and projects so that they can operate autonomously at times. Not looking for Solution Architects that have built web applications, or DBA's. Their resumes should reflect that they have this experience - preferably more than a couple of years, ideally in several different companies. And a pet peeve people who list several different titles next to their name to indicate the different roles they played for that experience entry. When I see that I look at the length of time in place divided by the number of different roles played to see how concentrated the experience was. I'm going to do a keyword search for DW, data warehouse, schema, architect, team, etc... and look for results that give context to the experience. If they have an experience highlights section that includes reference to skill sets, I want to see evidence of that later in the resume. Expect the architect to be able to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty, not just building a data warehouse, fostering stewardship of the data, etc. but also to be knowledgeable enough to contribute elsewhere when necessary and to mentor others.
