Are you someone who wants to inspire change in the way business is done? Do you want to work with encouraged and like-minded intrapreneurs? Us too! We take our work very seriously, but we have fun doing it. And we’re searching for passionate, talented people to join the Rightpoint team.
Our Commitment to You
No matter who you are, where you come from, who you love, what you believe, or what you get excited about, we bring people together to make phenomenal work. That's what makes us Rightpoint!
Our CMS & Web Platforms practice consists of a well-established team of engineers that focus on delivering great Content + Marketing experiences for some of the largest brands in the world. As we continue to build on our capabilities in this space, we are looking to expand our Adobe skillset to support our clients that use Adobe Experience Cloud to engage their end customers.
To that end, Rightpoint is looking for an AEM technical architect to shape and support pursuits, estimate effort, and confidently execute and deliver on projects. This person would champion AEM internally, establish standard methodologies, and be the integral component for growing a team that is focused on delivering projects across the Adobe Experience Cloud suite. While this is a hands-on sales engineering and delivery-focused role, the career growth opportunity lies in leading and shaping the group that works on AEM projects for our clients. With the recent acquisition of Something Digital, a Gold Adobe Magento partner, the timing is perfect to join our team and help us expand even further into the Adobe ecosystem.
