Technical Solution Architect - Solution 49x - Canberra


Do you love solving complex problems, designing sophisticated solutions and building innovative technology for Australia’s largest organisations?

We at Solution 49x use a human-centred design approach to address industry’s most pressing problems using AI and machine learning alongside other innovative technologies. Our focus is on transforming organisations’ abilities to engage with their customers and citizens whilst embracing the process efficiencies unlocked by these data-driven techniques. Recently we’ve helped clients use NLP to understand and unlock the information in decades of hand-written forms, we have designed virtual assistants that continue a unified conversation across every messaging platform, we have embedded intelligence and digitisation to vehicle maintenance and have defined a strategy to digitise a cemetery!

We’re proud that our diverse team includes a broad spectrum of skills and personalities - from strategists to statisticians, scientists to software developers, anthropologists to behavioural economists. We’re proud of our diversity and deeply believe this is the key to our innovation and success. We’re passionate about our mission to bring our dogs (and the other parts of life that make us real, rounded ‘humans’) to work every day.


We believe that

  • Complexity creates opportunity – Our focus on disrupting the status quo and bringing together truly differentiated solutions means we need to be comfortable with ambiguity
  • Bringing a point of view is paramount – our team are passionate about their area of discipline and their ability to apply their knowledge to the opportunities that today’s business presents
  • Embrace collaboration to be creative – We focus on strengthening and deepening the connections between our team members to transform our diverse expertise into a creative and successful culture
  • Passionate and humble – Our clients are the experts when it comes to their businesses and their customers. We listen with compassion and respond with intellect and pragmatism
  • Curious and committed to growth – We believe success comes from the growth of our people, drawing upon their drive, expertise and experience to advance individual and collective development and success. We support every team member in continuous skill development and career advancement through study groups and other personnel development initiatives
