Cox Communications is searching for a Small Business Architect who will reside in the Connected Home Engineering group. The Connected Home Engineering group is responsible for designing network solutions for residential and business customers that deliver state of the art internet, video, automation, security, and voice products.

Cox's Commercial customers have special needs that are often distinct from residential customers, for example requiring higher degrees of resiliency (e.g. battery & cellular backup), more feature-rich WiFi offerings serving their own enterprise as well customers, advanced network services requiring VPN or GRE Tunneling options, and more advanced customer & support portals.

As a Small Business Architect you will often analyze the pros and cons of various tradeoffs factoring into decisions, e.g. when to utilize existing infrastructure that may be less efficient than new systems, allow for more immediate delivery.

You will frequently be called upon to speak with a strong voice to advocate for your recommendations but also willing to work tirelessly to build consensus amongst an array of different stakeholders who may have competing priorities or opinions, utilizing your strong critical thinking, persuasion, and communications skills.

As a Small Business Architect you will also frequently help Product Management and Engineering peers draft detailed business and technical requirements for new products & features, draft Requests for Proposal, participate in industry trade & standards groups, collaborate with vendors, advise peers on test methodologies, and occasionally perform hands-on proof of concept testing.
