What’s the challenge?

Our architecture function is evolving. Formed in the last decade, it has grown significantly over this period, adding high calibre solution architects who are SMEs in specific architectural areas e.g. mobile, data etc. Every new person who joins the team gets to shape and influence the ongoing development of our function.

Our cloud architecture is the next area that needs focused expertise.

As a pureplay digital business that continues to experience considerable and rapid growth, we utilise AWS as our cloud service to provide us with the resilience, stability and security we need to underpin great experiences for our customers.

Inseparable from customer experience is the experience of our developers.

We want to leverage our cloud architecture to deliver a PAAS solution that enables our engineers to build great products, quickly and efficiently, with a real emphasis on the customer.

That’s where your knowledge, skills and experience come in.

What will it take to be successful?

An experienced cloud solution architect, you will have deep knowledge of AWS and a history of having architected solutions within the service; that being said, you will be comfortable articulating the offerings of other providers because of your passion for all things cloud.

Also, to make a real impact in this role, you will be able to demonstrate:
  • Extensive experience architecting cloud solutions
  • Deep technical knowledge of AWS
  • Engagement with a broad stakeholder group, both technical and non-technical
  • Experience working with multiple patterns, domains, languages and persistence mechanisms as well as distributed systems
  • Advocate of lean principles, keen to code and perform research and development into new technologies.
