Overview

Our growing project delivery teams are looking for an experienced Solution Architect to act as a technical lead, across multiple work streams.

As a Solution Architect at Informed Solutions you’ll be part of a diverse, high performing team of professionals. Our technical teams use a variety of open source and proprietary technologies to build world class solutions that genuinely make a difference to people’s lives; from online claims portals for victims of violent crime, consultations on government boundary changes, to helping nuclear facilities better understand their data.

The role is exciting and varied, working as part of a committed team of exceptional colleagues.  A key advantage of a career at Informed is our technology independence which means our architects have the freedom to design world-class solutions in the frameworks and technologies that best suit our clients’ needs.

We want a colleague who is professional, high achieving, with a positive ‘can do’ attitude that inspires others.  A key aspect of the Solution Architect role involves leading project teams using cutting edge technology, so you must be a tenacious problem solver with the ability and willingness to design and deliver enterprise level solutions in complex and uncertain environments.

Informed does not aspire to be an average business; we recruit exceptional colleagues, develop inspiring leaders and professionals, and have built up an enviable client list.  We are excited by people who are driven by achievement and are motivated by being part of a successful team that gets results.

Role Description

As a Solutions Architect at Informed you will:

  • Focus on delivering digital innovation, business outcomes and collaborative working relationships.
  • Work across projects as a technical lead, contributing to the development of our solutions.
  • Have an enquiring and adaptable mind that can work across different sectors and a diverse client base of government and multi-national organisations.
  • Work with industry thought leaders who are driven to make a positive impact on the UK’s technology landscape whilst also driving further growth for our business.
  • Be offered a diverse, exciting and fulfilling career with the ability to influence and shape not only your own career direction and that of our wider business as well.
  • Use your experience to lead, coach and mentor more junior team members. 

You will have:

  • Experience and understanding of modern software delivery practices (e.g. Scrum, SAFe, DevOps, Agile delivery phase, GDS Service Manual etc.).
  • Experience and understanding of solution architecture concepts, frameworks such as TOGAF, and communication of design and decision to clients.
  • Hands-on technical skills in the development of complex, innovative digital services throughout the full-stack, including modern programming languages, cloud technologies, CI/CD Pipelines, SQL databases and RESTful APIs.

Additional Information:

If you feel that you’re a great fit for the job but don’t yet have all the required skills, apply to us anyway.  If you’re the right person for us, have aptitude in those areas and the ambition to step up then we’ll train you! 

We ‘walk the talk’ about investing in people, developing the skills and confidence of our staff through our outstanding InformedACADEMY talent development programme.  The Company offers very competitive salaries and a flexible benefits package that includes pension, bonus scheme, paid sabbaticals and private health care.  If you’re keen to broaden your horizons even further, we offer global working experience via secondments or transfer to our Australian offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.

 

Are You Excited By and Ready for a Challenging Career?

If your aspirations match ours and are confident in putting forward ideas and picking up new skills; and are committed to being a good team player and colleague, then please come and join us.
