Broad and deep technical knowledge
The architect usually has knowledge in several technological stacks at a decent level and should have a good understanding of a few others. The architect should also be prepared to compose many technical documentations, reports, and diagrams.

An architect should understand that architect decisions are usually the most expensive ones. A person in this position should take the utmost responsible approach to his/her work and to the decisions made.

A good specialist should be able to talk with customers in the language of business, managers of all levels, business analysts and developers in their languages. To explain actions correctly, an architect must have natural charisma and the ability to convince people. English proficiency is a must.

Management skills
Includes both organisational and leadership skills. The ability to lead a team, which may be distributed and composed of very different types of specialists.

Stress resistance
An architect works with different people from different areas, rapidly changing demands or even changing business environments. Therefore, it is necessary to be ready for stressful situations and to find means to escape negative emotions to keep communication at a professional level.

Analytic skills
One of the most important tasks is the ability to represent an abstract problem in the form of some finite real object of the system, which can be evaluated, designed and developed.
