Solution Architect, Data architect, Cloud, Big data, AWS, Spark, Hadoop, Kafka, Amazonweb


Global software focused company who have a passion for cloud, data and dynamic technology. They develop and build to a high standard employing agile methodologies.
Going through a huge period of growth they have a strong recruitment drive to deliver some very unique projects globally.


The client have recently won a large project with huge potential and they are keen to make sure they have the platform to deliver effectively.

The architecture team is here to ensure the platform continues to grow in a scalable manner, to work with the business to understand their needs and to ensure those needs transition to working software in the platform. We employ a range of "big data" technologies (streaming and batch) and architects are expected to be hands on experts in their subject areas - this may mean rolling the sleeves up from time time.

Key responsibilities

* Comfortable with client facing work including some international travel.
* Work with the delivery teams to design and implement data processing pipelines, associated data and database structures and fine tune performance to meet those requirements.

* Participate in establishing processes and best practices around development standards.
* Own the architecture roadmap for a given product area.
* Govern architecture across the organisation.
