About your role:
A Junior Technical Architect helps innovate, design, create and deliver next generation solutions across a range of industries, technologies and functional areas. We are looking for someone who wants to take the next step toward a career in technology architecture, who has a good understanding of the mechanics of large systems at multiple levels and can understand the end-to-end needs of a project from user needs through to operational needs.
Our Technical Architects work within innovation teams to help refine hard business problems and create solution hypotheses which we use to test and validate our course to creating useful, impactful assets. Based on the core skills of problem solving, estimation & planning and good, solid technical competence and awareness, this role is critical in the crafting end-to-end solutions that solve real world problems and that can be scaled to meet the needs of large enterprises.
The Junior Technical Architect will work hand-in-hand with other architects, the development design and analytics teams on projects.

Experience and qualifications:
