Lead Architect

APIs / Transformation / Enterprise Architect / Technology Strategy / Data

La Fosse are working with a global financial services company that are looking to bring on-board a new Lead Architect into their Architecture function. You'll be coming into an area of the business undergoing substantial transformation & will also have responsibility for a small team of Architects.

This business area is one with significant data touchpoints, interconnected systems and Agile processes. Crucial to the technology modernisation and upgrade within the space is a long-term roadmap & overall strategy for technology, which you'd be responsible for helping design and then ensure is implemented.

Key Skills Required:

  • You'll need experience working in either a Solution or Enterprise Architecture capacity, ideally in a complex & multi-location business.
  • Given the importance of data in this organisation - experience of ESBs, API Gateways and Integration design patterns would be very advantageous.
  • Broad technology experience, with exposure to a wide variety of domains.
  • Experience working in ideally both in-house development & COTS environments, with the ability to work with software vendors & delivery partners.
  • Ability to work autonomously, drive change & challenge senior stakeholders.

Flexible working options to be discussed, but c. 3 days will be needed in London.
