Data Architect

A new opportunity has arisen for a Data Architect to join this FTSE 100 market-leading business, offering the chance to hugely influence the success of the business and shape BI and Data Technology.

Following the launch of a new Hadoop Big Data platform (with huge investment in this area), you will own the technical architecture and utilise your BI & Big Data skills to shape the decisions around solution delivery, and shape the way customer data is stored and used.

This role is split 50/50 between ensuring the right governance is in place whilst also looking at the future roadmap, as well as getting involved in solutions-led projects within this area.

Working as a Data Architect (Hadoop, Big Data, Tableau), your role will include:

  • Shaping and managing the future technical direction of the BI solutions and Big Data platform
  • Building and subsequently maintaining capability and technology road maps
  • Ensuring the right governance is in place; using TOGAF to implement the best architecture principals and standards
  • Building key relationships with stakeholders, up to board level

To be considered, you will need to demonstrate:

  • Architecture background in Data & Information
  • Proven experience of driving key Architecture decisions
  • Big Data OR Tableau experience is a must (Hadoop ideally, but not essential. Spark, Hive, Impala etc. all considered)
  • Architectural best-practice governance knowledge (TOGAF)
  • To bridge business and IT issues assimilating the key business requirements that drive the architecture
  • Ability to work on large-scale projects
  • Strong Agile/Scrum experience

This is a genuinely huge career move with a brilliant organisation where you can make a real difference as well as working alongside a hugely talented team, whilst driving major strategic decisions.

Location: Luton, Bedfordshire
Salary: £70K - £80K + bonus (up to 20%) + benefits
