Solution Architect

A new opportunity has arisen for an innovative and ambitious Solution Architect to join this market-leading FTSE 100 business at a hugely exciting period of eCommerce and technology transformation.

You will act as the technical lead on a wide variety of projects and initiatives involving turning technical ideas into solutions and being the bridge between architecture and software delivery.

The Solution Architect must have a strong design background, with genuine knowledge of design patterns and exposure to both 'good' and 'bad' design patterns. You will also have outstanding stakeholder engagement skills, with a good understanding of how digital platforms and products fit together across IT and eCommerce.

Working as a Solution Architect, your role will include:

  • The design and implementation of solutions that include multi-vendor tech and products, eCommerce platforms, process orchestration and various operating systems.
  • Shaping and managing the future direction of the company's applications.
  • Working closely with the Architecture team to deliver technology to the business in line with needs and goals, as part of business-critical projects.
  • Providing technical leadership whilst building key relationships with stakeholders, up to board level (experience here is key).

To be considered for the Solution Architect role, you will need to demonstrate:

  • Technical hands-on experience within software development, preferably with C#.
  • Strong solution architecture experience, preferably within the digital and eCommerce space in a large-scale company (Retail, eCommerce or Logistics sector ideal, within a large-scale environment).
  • Proven experience of driving key architecture decisions within an Agile environment.
  • Strong design pattern knowledge and can form a genuine opinion about this and the right way to carry out design work.
  • Experience as part of large-scale, multi-year projects and business-critical programmes.
  • A proactive approach and ready for an exciting new challenge.

This is a genuinely huge career move for an ambitious Solution Architect with a brilliant organisation where you can make a real difference, as well as work alongside a hugely architecture talented team on some cutting-edge front-line projects.
