Startups like to use trendy job titles such as Content King and Growth Wizard to create a fun company culture and communicate to the outside world that they’re a certifiably “cool” place to work. These titles, however, are often not very descriptive of the role itself.
A job title that sounds similarly trendy on the surface, but more accurately describes a crucial part of a company’s growth and function is the “Solutions Architect”. A Solutions Architect helps take new products from idea to implementation, fix existing problems in the most efficient way possible, and generally makes sure that the business and technical sides of a company understand each other.
