About your role:

The Solution 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 can be a leader within our team, responsible for inspiring and growing our people, providing guidance, coaching and motivation to improve.

Solution Architects work within innovation teams to help refine hard business problems, navigate complex areas of uncertainty and create solution hypotheses which we use to test and validate our direction and create 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, that can also be scaled to meet the needs of large enterprises.

This employee works in concert with the project engaging with sprint planning, peer reviews and design sessions helping to bring a system-wide view of the problem and the solution to ensure that everything fits together and is built for the future..

  • Understand the perspectives of others including software engineers, data scientists and designers and be highly collaborative and enthusiastic in achieving results

  • Experience within the Java, Node or Python ecosystems, including familiarity with designing system components based on top of common frameworks such a Spring Boot, Express.js and/or Flask and experience building on top of one of the main public cloud vendors (e.g. AWS, Azure, GCP)

Extras we’d love to see:

We love experience with Cloud Native Design and integrating cloud services directly into complex solutions. Knowledge of modern data pipelines/Big Data processing techniques (including AI model development pipelines) is also a plus. Hands on experience with DevOps tools and techniques (including CI/CD pipelines) and an understanding of cloud security best practices is great to see.


Experience and qualifications:

  • Experience in development and working in areas of emerging technology (AI, Analytics, IoT, Blockchain, Immersive Realities) and driving new points of view and capabilities

  • Proven expertise in creating solutions and accurately estimating agile project effort and costs.

  • Proven experience in project and program management and in managing senior stakeholders

  • B.Sc./B.Eng./M.Sc./M.Eng./PhD degree(s) in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Mathematics, related fields or relevant professional experience.
