About the role
You will be joining a small, dynamic team of strategy oriented architects,
focused on the overall technology strategy and architecture of the group. We
collaborate closely with other members of the architecture practice,
business and engineering leaders around the organisation to deliver
strategic papers, shape roadmaps, provide thought leadership and inspire
adoption of modern technologies.
In your role you will have an opportunity to engage with senior leaders,
advise them on how to leverage technology to achieve desired outcomes and
articulate optionality that balances different drivers for change. Our team
backlog frequently changes to reflect the exciting environment we operate
within and focus our energy on most value adding architecture activities.
Consequently, our work varies; some examples include articulating a
technology strategy at the group level, shaping divisional and value stream
roadmaps, creating proposals for adoption of new technologies, working with
partners to deliver value-adding insight, defining options to address
architectural debt, creating domain specific whitepapers, and many more.

and industry trends and apply that insight to the organisation.
You have a background in enterprise architecture or technology consulting
roles with emphasis on shaping capability, domain or organisational

experiences is important to you and you are able to communicate equally well
with business and technological communities at all levels.

depth of knowledge and experience in applying modern web‐scale
