I wanted to craft something short and (hopefully) sweet that might just make your job search a little less arduous and to make that happen, I want to take you on a journey...

That journey begins with the organisation themselves, an innovative Tech Consultancy, small in size (>200) and one of my longest-tenured clients. To put it simply, they are an award-winning organisation, disruptors in their field with an excellent reputation for providing high-quality and scalable solutions for their customers.

They work accross numerous technology channels (e.g. Microsoft, Salesforce, Big Data, Cloud, Java) and their goal is to provide a consistently high level of service to a diverse set of customers, working collaboratively at all times to ensure smooth and pain-free transformations. They have several offices in the UK and offer an excellent benefits package, alongside the opportunity to work on cutting-edge projects in both the public and private sectors.

The journey continues with the role, part of a huge recruitment drive planned for early 2019 and part of the organisation's 'Architectural Strategy' function. This function focuses on bespoke application development and Cloud transformations, with the main crux of the work being Agile software integrations on an enterprise scale.

As a Cloud Solutions Architect, you will be primarily focused on developing and delivering solutions for both internal and external clients.

You will combine deep understanding and experience of shaping integration solutions with the personal skills and credibility to lead and guide some of the best technical teams in the business to successful delivery. You will take accountability for ensuring that the end-to-end integration solutions they create for their customers fulfil their expectations of high quality and cost-effectiveness.

The role will require flexibility around mobility and UK-wide travel, with you essentially working on customer site x3 days per week with x2 day per week home based. They will try to base you as close to your home location as possible but that cannot always be guaranteed. The main project sites are London, Leeds and Manchester.

The journey draws to a close with the requirements... which are pretty diverse! So in order to truly get the most out of this role, you'll bring some of the following skills to the table:

E2E Architecture - you should have a fundamental understanding of Cloud Architecture, Solutions Architecture and E2E Solutions Design. You should be able to work across various designs/methods (N-Tier, SOA, Microservices etc.), with any industry certifications (e.g. TOGAF) being a huge bonus.

Stakeholder Management - due to the nature of this organisation (e.g. a customer-facing consultancy), you should have a proven track record both managing and influencing c-level stakeholders throughout the delivery lifecycle.

Software Development Background - it is crucial that you have a background in Software Development and Software Architecture due to the nature of this role, so this wouldn't suit Infrastructure Architects as an example. You should have an understanding of the full Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), ideally with previous exposure to Microsoft/Open Source development (Python, Java, C#, JavaScript), APIs and Cloud (AWS, Azure) technology.

Finally, the journey ends with you... i.e. how you decide to proceed.

If you decide you want to proceed to a chat, then give me a shout.

You can call me on either 0191 338 7540 or 07943721308.

Alternatively, drop me a LinkedIn message by searching for 'Liam Haghighat'.

However, if you feel this role isn't right for you then I wish you the best of luck with the remainder of your job search!
