Our client is one of the UK's leading financial services organisations, currently looking for a Solution Architect to join its team on a permanent basis. This role can be based anywhere in the UK with travel as required.

As a Solution Architect, you will be architecting and designing technical solutions and platforms and providing technical direction and guidance to engineers across multiple teams. Harnessing your experience of modern engineering techniques, technology and tooling to define resilient and highly scalable solutions.

You'll be helping ensure solutions align to strategic direction and technology choices and are appropriate to meet the long terms goals of the business strategy, as well as lower-level requirements. You'll need to ensure that the solutions meet guardrails and NFRs, as well as aligning to good practice, architectures and patterns.

A team player who can lead by example, you'll also nurture and develop contacts and relationships to enable things to be done faster and more efficiently. Essentially, it's about getting stuck in and having a go, knowing that sometimes to fail fast is to learn fast.

To be successful in this role, we are looking for some of the following experience:

  • Architecting / designing and implementing solutions for both on-premise and Cloud platforms.
  • Designing and developing full stack solutions, with a good understanding of good development practice on each tier of the stack. A willingness to get hands on for POCs or prototypes where appropriate.
  • Standard technology governance processes, including evidencing conformance to guardrails.
  • Quality checking and ensuring alignment of lower level artifacts and solutions.
  • Defining and comparing options, architectures, principles and patterns when designing solutions, and articulating their relative advantages and disadvantages.
  • Designing and developing solutions that integrate with and re-use existing services and platforms, in a secure and reliable way.
  • Defining appropriate data models for relational and no-SQL databases, and associated MI and data flows.
  • Designing Rest APIs.
  • A range of tools and techniques to effectively convey a solution at a range of different levels, and to different audiences
  • DevOps practices and principles.

In return, you will get access to a fantastic benefits package including:

  • A personal pension - if you put in 7% of your salary, the company will top up by a further 16%
  • Up to 2 days of paid volunteering a year
  • Life assurance worth 8x your salary
  • Access to an annual performance related bonus
  • Access to training to help you develop and progress your career
  • 25 days holiday

Please apply online today for immediate consideration.
