Job Title - Applications Architect

SC Clearance- Will ONLY consider candidates with DV


The Non-Standard Services workstream within the end client programme, require an applications architect with cloud and security controls experience in order to begin construction of the NSS portion of the LEDS design architecture.

The requirement is niche and urgent due to the fact that advanced security clearance is required (DV) and the resources are required to commence work in the shortest of timeframes due to NSS being a critical path element of the programme/portfolio delivery.

There are multiple external interfacing programmes with the LEDS platform, some of which have Non Standard Service requirements that need to be accommodated in the platform design.

The following detailed requirements apply to the role:

Essential skills and experience

* Applications architecture background (java, json, xml)
* API/Broker/Bus architecture
* Will need to immediately start building HL/LL designs, working with programme platform interfaces
* Expertise/experience working on security controls/mechanisms, transport protocols, IAM (RBAC)

Nice-to-have skills & experience

* Agile operating model & toolsets e.g. confluence,
