I'm looking for a solution architect to join a large international organisation who are looking to bolster their architectural capabilities. There are clear lines of progression, training budgets, and a fully remote working style.
Salary: Up to £75,000 p/a + 15% Bonus
Location: Fully Remote
- Develop the architecture & overall design for major/strategic projects in line with the output of the Enterprise Architects and providing the boundaries within which the engineering teams can subsequently deliver.
- Support, and actively participate in, robust governance processes relating to target and transition conceptual, logical, and physical architectures for application/technology solutions.
- Facilitate the process of making Key Design decisions, ensuring that all key stakeholders can contribute to the process.
- Communicate the reasoning and implications of key architectural decisions to senior management stakeholders.
- Contribute to cross functional Design Working Groups to discuss, agree, and communicate key design elements.
- Ensuring that the programmes, projects, and initiatives are aware of, and comply with, the documented Architectural governance processes.
- Provide mentoring and coaching for less experienced members of the Solution Architecture team.
To be effective in the role, you will need the ability to work flexibly. Much of your time will be spent working in virtual teams, with the very occasional need to attend the offices, where many of our key stakeholders are based.
