This role reports to the Enterprise Architect who has a strong technical background and knows almost every nuance of the business and the SaaS direction.  Perfect for an aspiring architect with a broad technical background; ideally a good mid to snr software engineer who sees their future career path as architecture rather than team management.

  • Validating tech choices, systems security and costs
  • Supporting and engaging developers in planning, feature designs and with efficient processes
  • Producing PoCs – hands on coding
  • Discovering the best ways to deliver on product feature requests and presenting the options and rationale back to business stakeholders
  • Working with product owners to liaise between product / sales and tech colleagues
  • Assuming ownership of the SaaS platform from a technical perspective and ensuring all changes deliver the correct balance of cost to feature benefit with flexibility for future change
  • Selling options to both technical and non-technical audiences

Key skills –

  • KISS
  • Self-motivated with a can do attitude
  • Cloud experience AWS or Azure (AWS preferred at the moment)
  • CI/CD Pipelines and DevOps – expect to be very hands on…
  • Communication with non-technical business roles
  • Communication with technical roles (dev, test & support)
  • 2-3 years of micro-services environments
  • 5+ years software engineering ideally as a full-stack or back-end dev
  • Context switching while working on multiple feature and platform requests concurrently

Desirable –

  • Knowledge of building AWS and/or Azure Cloud solutions
  • AWS VPC networking and security
  • AWS API Gateway, Lambda, RDS, Route53, CloudFormation, Lambda@Edge
  • Terraform
  • Python
  • Containerisation – Kubernetes / Docker

The technology is new and not hampered with legacy kit.  DotNet Core 3.1 to DotNet 6 and NextJS on AWS Lambda, React Native, PWAs and RDS. Lightweight event-sourcing and event driven microservices architectures.
