A well-built solution architect helps a team develop a product on budget, on time and with purpose. As a result solution architects are an invaluable asset to any organisation, which is why my client is looking for the best of the best.

This organisation is a UK leader in large scale digital solutions who are looking to hire skilled Solution Architects. The roles are part of an enormous recruitment drive aimed at improving the way they deliver content to their enterprise customers.

The roles are technically UK-wide and will involve working with a client in a presales capacity through to delivery. In terms of customers, you will work on-site providing solution architectures used to define project plans, manage detailed design, inform technical risk analysis and support estimation. Not only will these projects include collaboration with other talented engineers, you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects. Giving you the chance to have exposure to a broad arsenal of technology.

In terms of requirements, the ideal candidate would be able to offer a range of skills. However rather than just regurgitate the Job description, the client has highlighted to me some key skills they are looking for.

Microsoft Azure - What does Azure mean? Azure means "Sky Blue". However in this instance, it is the world's leading cloud computing service provider. Moreover the ideal candidate will have excellent knowledge of exploiting Microsoft Azure for delivery of cloud native solutions. Importantly for you, my client can offer certifications.

Microsoft Technology - A strong background in building scalable, resilient and secured applications using Microsoft SharePoint, Dynamics 365 and .NET.

Architecture Approach - Within the role you will be tasked with designing, planning, implementing architecture on an enterprise level. Therefore experience using a high level approach such as TOGAF or similar would be required.

Eager to learn new skills - My client prides themselves on being able to deliver on award winning T training. Learning new skills and technology keeps us keen and adaptable. Which ultimately gives you wider career opportunities.

In terms of culture, you will struggle to find somewhere better. Year on year my client invests thousands into training their employees from the latest tech such as Docker Swarm and Kubernetes. Which gives you the chance to cross-train and work on them technologies you have been itching to implement.

They offer a base salary of up to £95,000 (DOE) + 5% Bonus as well as the opportunity to work remotely when not on-site. In addition pension, healthcare and expenses.
