So what kind of Data Architect are we looking for… voice of the business? The SME of creating a complex data structure from scratch? The ability to work across cloud, SaaS and microservices paradigms? Yes, it’s Data… Yes, it’s Architecture… but this role is by no means ordinary. Our client are working “on the edge of possible”, creating innovations that are going to change the technical landscape moving forward.

So what does “on the edge of possible” mean? Well for us its people who are able to innovate and able to adapt, look at the bigger picture and not just plan for now but help the company scale massively! The Enterprise Data Architect will sit on a team of core thinkers, helping to blueprint the technical infrastructure for the future of the company. You will be mirroring the data architectural design with the entire company strategy; creating a secure, efficient environment for our client to thrive in.

What you’ll be doing…
As an Enterprise Data Architect, guess what, you will be designing the architecture from scratch. Shock horror! However this isn’t small scale, think of multiple platforms, in multiple geographical locations, with multiple dependencies across the whole of the BSS architecture.

You’ll work in a cross-functional team developing the architectural blueprints from scratch, understanding business objectives and converting these to principles / practices to help model data entities across the enterprise.

Within the role you will be working closely with Business Solutions Owners and helping to create value streams throughout the delivery and platform teams. On a daily basis you will be translating strategic goals from architects to project level, building teams to manage the operations, mitigate against any potential risks, manage the delivery functions and help to keep projects on track.

Along with the other project leaders, you’ll be responsible for delivering a world class tech stack, implement next generation features and create an end-to-end data architecture built of innovation and integrity.

What we are looking for…
The technology hasn’t been chosen yet, the technical blueprints will start in June so ideally we are looking for candidates who can work across AWS PaaS platforms, with the freedom and knowledge to take a best tech forward approach in the future.
* Experience designing and architecting a data and analytics systems / processes.
* Expertise with complex data structures.
* A forward thinker willing to embrace and implement big data and AI systems.

In an ideal world, your background will be within highly regulated industries (Defense, Aviation, Telecommunications, Transport etc) utilising a DevOps methodological approach.

Still here? Good!
This is a crucial role in the company as you’re in the driver’s seat to help deliver value and really put your own stamp on something – For more details/Job spec please apply get in touch with Jonathan
