Solution Architect

London - Canary Wharf

6 Months

Project

Fancy working for a global provider of financial markets data and infrastructure? The Solution Architecture team have the need for a Process & Solution Architect based in London. There is a critical need to scale-up the solution architecture organization and put into place a number of key governance processes and artefacts. It is a senior technology role responsible for solution design and governance of use-cases built on the Platform, next-generation and strategic data storage, enrichment/transformation & delivery platform, and product suite. The role initially will focus on creating processes and artefact templates for several key architecture governance processes, which will ultimately be used as design documentation and checklists that ensure our large group of circa 900 development engineers are building components and project use-cases sufficiently aligned to our architecture goals and principles, and forcing as much re-use of existing capabilities as is sensible. This governance and the scale that will result is key to driving our simplification agenda across Technology, and key to achieving our goal to accelerate delivery of capabilities and product use-cases.

Key Responsibilities

  • Creation of architecture review artefact templates, for wider use by dozens of solution architects
  • Creation of cost-modelling artefacts for both project use-cases and components (technology assets)
  • Design and governance of Platform capabilities and components
  • Collaborate with wider architecture review stakeholders

Key Abilities

  • AWS tools
  • GraphQL helpful
  • For initial deliverables some experience of defining processes, creating technical policies, creating process templates, that have successfully been used in a large organization, is critical
  • Ability to influence, manage and facilitate change
  • Ability to build consensus across a diverse set of stakeholders with diverse views
  • Ability to work as part of a number of global project teams providing architectural direction
  • Ability to think conceptually and pragmatically to determine feasible solutions for implementation
  • Ability to assist business stakeholders to define and prioritise their requirements
