Senior Technical Architect

Salary - up to £125k + Bonus

I am partnered with a global FinTech specialising in cloud-based analytics and archiving, within the global financial sector. We're seeking a Senior Technical Architect to take architectural ownership across components and new features of our highly scalable enterprise applications.

As the Senior Technical Architect, you'll work closely with the Principal Architect, Development Leads and Product Managers to design, architect and align delivery of new products and features that have recently been defined.

We are offering the Senior Technical Architect:

  • an opportunity to own all architectual aspects and design facets for components in a specific product area
  • responsibility across technology and architecture, ensuring they're in line and true to design
  • technical oversight and decision making

The Senior Technical Architect will work in a technically challenging environment. The applications are built using Core Java (Multithreaded applications) and React, on top of Microservices, where Docker, Kubernetes and OpenShift are utilised for a private on-permise cloud deployment.

Due to the amount of financial data involved, the Senior Technical Architect will also get exposure to Big Data (Hadoop and Kafka) and NoSQL databases (Cassandra and MongoDB). Prior experience with these would be a big plus!

The Senior Technical Architect role provides an opportunity to spearhead the future direction of the products. Proven experience in a previous Architectural role is a must, as well as architecting Microservices.

The company have doubled in size, this year, in the London office, which acts as their UK and EU headquarters. This is a great chance for a Senior Technical Architect to join during this huge phase of growth, and be a hugely focal part of the scaling of our already successful products.

Apply now for immediate consideration for this excellent Senior Technical Architect opportunity!
