  • Lead the end-to-end design of performant, secure, robust and maintainable platforms architectures across evolving technologies

  • Support the development and delivery into production of the architecture and coach engineers during delivery using a variety of methodologies

  • Analyse and resolve architectural problems throughout the lifecycle of the solution working closely with either agile development and operations teams or in a full DevSecOps model

  • Lead technical architecture design and assessment projects at client sites with key client partners

  • Cultivate successful, motivated teams across the globe to deliver large transformational technology change for our clients


We are looking for experience in the following skills:

  • An ability to communicate design concepts to both deeply technical development teams as well as non-technical staff

  • A deep and practical working knowledge of one (or more) of the major cloud platforms

  • Solid understanding of key architecture concerns such as security, availability, scalability, operability, maintainability and how to ensure that they are delivered as specified

  • Knowledge of and experience applying modern architecture principles and patterns

  • Experience supporting operational platforms in high-scale live production environments

Set yourself apart:

  • Demonstrable hands-on experience designing, building and maintaining scalable products and platforms

  • A track record of using technical architecture and modern engineering principles to improve the end user experience and backend functionality of products and platforms

  • Demonstrable experience of upskilling, teaching and running an engineering or architecture team

  • Prior experience working with senior technical and non-technical stakeholders on business-critical systems
