  • You will ensure that relevant technical strategies, policies, standards and practices are applied correctly, consulting with technical experts as required.
  • You will draft high- and low-level designs and progression through governance/assurance.

What we look for in you?

  • You will have experience of working with engineering data on large data platforms across multiple applications.
  • Your experience of using and extending Open Architecture Patterns would be desirable.
  • You have strong team leadership skills and be capable of engaging with a range of senior stakeholders, with the ability to draw out the findings and requirements into actionable tasks; assigning said tasks to the teams in a way which builds towards the required deliverable.
  • There is significant growth opportunity within this role due to the complexity and breadth of the task, encompassing solution and integration architecture alongside the data architecture design.
  • You will be expected to operate with and present to senior stakeholders within the client industry groups as well as have good liaisons with the internal platform teams.
  • Strong Presentation and stakeholder engagement skills
  • It would be desirable if you have any exposure to Kafka, Hadoop stack, nifi, Realtime streaming architectures, Linux development and/or agile methods.

What we offer to you?

  • Work-life balance is important; you will get 25 days holiday a year and, via our flexible benefits package the option to buy/sell holiday and carry over from the year before.
