Can I say for example "I’m working as an engineer in company which provide state of the art IT solution."?
I wonder if I can use phrase "state of the art" with nouns like:
- IT solution
- oil service
- financial manager

The phrase "state-of-the-art" is used to refer to things (whether concrete or abstract), not to people.
So these are ok:
We sell state-of-the-art IT solutions.
Using a state-of-the-art oil service can extend the life of your car.
But this is not:
My friend Bill is a state-of-the-art financial manager.
