Our client has developed some of the most demanding systems around, using the latest technologies and techniques, from the messaging hub that integrates massive public sector bodies, to an application that uses a leading-edge AWS technology stack to underpin a great UX visualising the flightpaths of every plane in the world – as well as analysing huge quantities of data to improve fuel efficiency, reducing costs and environmental impact. Their architects have always been at the centre of their client engagement, managing technical risk and creating real business value. On a daily basis, they grapple with key questions for the business, like these:
How should our application architecture change and what supporting infrastructure is required as we migrate to the Cloud?
How do we maintain conceptual integrity of our product design as it rapidly evolves?
How can we quickly deliver the robust legacy system interfaces needed by our Agile development teams?
What do we need to do to integrate data science models into our production business processes and unlock the value of our data?
More specifically, this is a key post where you’ll have overall technical responsibility for the delivery of your own solutions. Consequently, you must be experienced in defining and delivering solutions that meet wide ranging stakeholder requirements and stringent non-functional requirements. You’ll also be comfortable evaluating a new Open Source technology in a rapid technical spike, presenting to a CIO on a package selection or working with a technical tester and a support desk engineer to debug a time-critical P1 issue.
As a technical authority, you’ll be expected to lead by example, inspiring delivery teams to create great software products that demonstrate the art of the possible. You’ll also mentor developers to ensure they see the wider picture and meet exacting standards, while acknowledging the deep experience they bring from spending hours a day working on a codebase.
To join this highly-rated team, you’ll need broad-ranging technical knowledge, full lifecycle project experience and the excellent communication skills necessary to bridge the gap between client and internal delivery managers, enterprise architects, operations teams, UX consultants and developers. You’ll also need an energetic, pragmatic, delivery-focused attitude and the willingness to be hands-on when required that wins the respect of those around you and makes you a trusted technical advisor.
You love technology and want to keep on learning, balancing innovation and intellectual rigour with realism and displaying a genuine interest in and understanding of the challenges your users face and how you can help them.
