  • Shaping solution designs following a structured methodology as appropriate to the project
  • Defining system requirements for a software solution to support a scalable and resilient application
  • Overseeing the implementation of the design in collaboration with other team members such as Application, Data and Security Architects
  • Ensuring the design meets key functional and in particular non-functional requirements, enabling through life scenarios of the solution to be satisfied

You will have experience of the application of the above ideally in the following domains:

  • Big Data solutions
  • Web Scale applications for the Cloud
  • Open Source and COTS integration
  • Integration patterns and architectures
  • Workflow systems
