Job Description

As a Solution Architect within Accenture you’re designing the end-to-end service scope and structure of an Accenture Infrastructure Outsourcing deal.

We are looking for a generalist who will strive to get agreement with Accenture’s delivery organization, the client and the commercial teams in Accenture on the outsourcing deal discussed. You will shape the best solution taking the different point of views into account. Are you an ‘enabler’ and an eager individual combining commercial and content skills? Than we are looking for you!

Your job

You will be responsible of following main tasks:
  • Overall Solution Architect for all infrastructure components on major outsourcing new business opportunities with infrastructure component (experience with typically $50m+ preferred);
  • Architecting compelling and competitive infrastructure solutions which demonstrate significant and quantifiable value to the client;
  • Leveraging Accenture assets and third-party relationships in architecting solutions;
  • Leading the infrastructure solution planning teams for large, complex deals including multiple solution architects, subject matter experts, transition and transformation experts;
  • Working alongside Sales Support to manage the senior client buyer and solution owner (e.g. CFO, CIO) and selling the solution;
  • Bringing operational experience to bear to ensure solution is deliverable at acceptable risk to Accenture;
  • Developing and negotiating contract content to ensure the infrastructure solution is contracted to deliver client and Accenture value;
  • Performing the role of Infrastructure Transition Lead, where required, to ensure solution is transitioned successfully into delivery;
  • Building strong links with and working collaboratively with Accenture groups to ensure holistic solutions, transition and delivery;
  • Managing a team of 5-20 solution architects + an offshore deliver team.
