Boston Consulting Group
WHAT YOU’LL DO
To realize our digital transformation, we need to transform our products, experiences, processes, technology and how we operate. Delivering our clients unrivalled experience of exceptional service, value and flexibility is part of our DNA. We are looking for people who are passionate about Agile ways of working and want to spread this approach within our teams and business processes. To execute this transformation, we need people who take the lead in defining standards and guardrails of working and developing expertise within the tribe.
As IT Solution Architect you will define and design technology solutions that optimize our solutions for rapid innovation whilst also making sure we manage risks such as cyber security and operational resilience. You will act as pioneer, thought leader, problem solver, and be sought out for your expertise by product teams, enabling them to go faster, safely, and prevent solutions that are hard to change and stifle innovation.
In your role you will bridge enterprise architecture and engineering, and will own the design of one or more products and solutions within the HR tribe. You will optimize against many requirements such as functional needs, quality attributes (e.g., security, usability), cost, and enterprise-wide goals (e.g., cloud and API enablement). You document architecture views and deliver architecture artefacts required by the delivery process, and enable teams to maximize the automation in the deployment pipeline.
Moreover, you will be a hands-on participant in architecture proof of concepts, innovation initiatives, and performance tuning activities. Researching/analyzing emerging technologies, as well as designing and advocating new technologies, architectures, and products in collaboration with system and service owners is part of your profile. Same is true for identifying risks within proposed solution architectures and developing mitigation plans, ensuring that solution architectures are scalable and sustainable for operations. You propose architectural epics and stories to implement the architectural runway and clear technical debt, document quality attributes in epics & stories, and define acceptance criteria.
YOU’RE GOOD AT
To be successful, you should bring sound development and architecture experience leveraging technologies to drive technical governance, innovation, integration and cloud-oriented strategies. Ideally, you thrive in a work environment that requires strong problem solving, analytical and decision making skills, and independent self-direction, coupled with an aptitude for collaboration and open communication.
