Solution Architect

Global Market Maker – City, London   

£90,000 + Bonus + Benefits     

Tech: Java, C++, Cloud, AWS, Messaging, Caching, Continuous Delivery, Open Source   

A global brokerage in the heart of the City are seeking to hire a Solution Architect to take the lead in the technical direction of this high-performing firm.   

As the Solution Architect you will be working across the whole enterprise to identify areas that could benefit from decreasing the reliance on third-party vendor solutions, then exploring the open source technology landscape to find and recommend viable alternatives. Once you have found these, you will run extensive PoC trials then present your findings to the relevant stakeholders. You will then be charged with the integration and delivery of your solution.

One of your key attributes will not just be evaluating technology because it’s new, but understanding the business requirements and presenting not just the tools but the total cost of ownership of your solution.

This is an incredible opportunity for a solution architect that’s currently working in a smaller organisation or perhaps a hands-on technologist who wants to step up into an architectural position.

For the role of Solution Architect you will need the following skills:

  • Demonstrable Continuous Delivery experience
  • Keen and demonstrable interest in the Open Source community
  • Technically experienced with: Java, C++, Messaging technologies, Cloud computing and Caching

As a Solution Architect you will be joining a firm that is constantly looking to improve systems and develop new offerings in order to maintain competitive edge, so this is an environment full of passionate technologist and will be an ideal place for someone who is looking to grow their career to the maximum potential.
