Veeva [NYSE: VEEV] is the leader in cloud-based software for the global life sciences industry. Committed to innovation, product excellence, and customer success, our customers range from the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies to emerging biotechs. Veeva’s software helps our customers bring medicines and therapies to patients faster.
We are the first public company to become a Public Benefit Corporation. As a PBC, we are committed to making the industries we serve more productive, and we are committed to creating high-quality employment opportunities.
Veeva is a Work Anywhere company which means that you can choose to work in the environment that works best for you - on any given day. Whether you choose to work remotely from home or work in an office - it’s up to you.
The Role
Our Commercial Technology Architecture team advises Life Sciences customers to devise the right technology strategy and architecture to help their broader commercial business accomplish their strategic goals. As a Senior Infrastructure/Cloud Architect, you will drive customer engagements around infrastructure assets working with our customers, Veeva teams and other vendors to define the overall cloud/infrastructure architecture that will meet current and future business needs.  As our customers are looking to transition to the cloud, you will need to help them take stock of their current infrastructure and draw upon an architectural framework/context that helps them accomplish their strategic and operational objectives.  You will work with customers to identify business drivers, establish priorities, define roadmaps, and work with Veeva and other vendors to help them realize that vision. This is a remote, full-time permanent role with Veeva. This is a customer-facing role and we have no work location requirement if you are in close proximity to an airport and able to meet future travel requirements.
