Compare The Market are on a mission to transform the comparison industry, moving beyond endless forms and generic search results, to a highly personalised, service-led experience. In order to do so, we recognise that we need to consistently deliver seamless, personalised customer experiences across devices and channels through a connected data and technology ecosystem. 

 

This Solution Architect role is a key hire for 2019 and will help set the architectural direction for our Financial Technology stack and connection to our data infrastructure. You will establish a clear technical authority within this programme, liaising with a range of business and technology stakeholders to drive requirements forward, identify areas of greatest business value and help the team deliver against the strategic objectives of the organisation.

 

Alongside your stakeholders you will be a part of a senior team of technical architects who individually are accountable for driving architectural roadmaps across multiple capabilities (such as security, cloud platform, microservice architecture) and programmes of work (such as marketing, rewards and loyalty). You will need to be able to express your ideas with clarity, confidence and logical reasoning, developing strong relationships built on shared goals and ideals.

 

At Compare The Market we believe in investing in both our technology and our people and are committed to implementing the best technology to solve our problems and our people to have the best skills to use them. As such there are many opportunities to formally and informally acquire new skills and experience in some of the latest technology on the market. As a Solution Architect you will have a curious mind and have the passion to experience and learn new things constantly.

 
What will it take?
 
We are searching for someone who ticks the following boxes:
 
  • Strong technology leadership skills
  • Experience in a FinTech market, and a proven track record of delivering connected technology, infrastructure and data that drives significant value and features to customers.
  • You should be motivated by the opportunity to shape the technology agenda for Compare The Market, working with product, marketing and tech teams to build an environment that enables long-term success
