An industry leading Bank has an exciting opportunity available for a Solutions Architect to join their dynamic team.
Purpose Statement
Let me tell you a bit about yourself.
You are a tech-savvy individual who understands the importance of staying ahead of the game when it comes to technology. You know that DevOps culture is the key to solving problems at scale, and you have a passion for innovation and love to explore new skills and techniques in a dynamic and fast-paced environment. If this sounds like you or the person you want to be, we have the perfect opportunity for you!

As a Solutions Architect, you will be responsible for the success of a product. You will have full autonomy over your application, acting as the apex technical leader for your product. The scale and growth of the client base means that you get to solve complex problems at scale.

You will bring deep technical knowledge of at least one programming paradigm, preferably object-oriented or functional programming, and be comfortable working with languages like C#, Java, JavaScript, or Python. Additionally, you will have experience with both relational and non-relational databases, as well as AWS cloud skills. You will have the opportunity to learn and work with domain-driven design, event-driven architecture, and Kubernetes. You will be a problem solver at heart, with the ability to think critically and creatively to find innovative solutions.

You will have the opportunity to explore new skills and technologies, while working with a team of dedicated professionals in a fast-paced and dynamic environment.
