£70,000 - £90,000 depending on location

Job Role

The role of Solutions Architect will see you being involved throughout the full delivery life cycle and taking on a more consultative approach – building strong relationships with clients, understanding their motivations behind projects, the design, implementation and support of the specific solution. Quite often you’ll be providing clients with their first experience of our client’s delivery capability and their approach to this. You’ll need these requirement capturing skills in order to be able to fully design and deliver the best suited solution for these specific requirements, which tend to differ from client to client.

Requirements & Experience

Typically, we’re looking for someone who has experience in solving customer data problems on the (AWS) cloud – for instance, designing data analytics platforms, integrating data from 2 business units / companies that have merged and migrating existing data platforms or enterprise applications to new cloud platforms.

In terms of the technical aspect, we’re looking for someone with proven AWS design, implementation and support experience at enterprise level. You’ll be acting as the main point of contact and escalation point for all AWS technical issues and decisions and so a solid understanding of AWS network services, core services and server-less services are key. Any AWS certifications will be extremely helpful in going for this role.
