The Company

You'll be joining a leading digital partner, recognised for delivering award-winning, world-class solutions. Their thinking is done upfront, involving clients from the start through information gathering workshops for exploring ideas, unearthing the details, and giving honest direction. You will be working with a growing team of experts that include Developers, Account Managers, Strategists, UX Architects, Designers and Support Executives.

The Role

The Solutions Architect will lead and drive a technical team as well as define the functional scope and technical approach for ecommerce and CMS projects. In this role you will split your time between technical leadership and oversight, technical pre-sales support and small development tasks. The expected technical skillset is that of a senior-level developer (at least four years' experience at this level), though typically a Solutions Architect will focus primarily on smaller development tasks to be able to better support the project team and Project Manager. Our client continuously find new and innovative ways to tackle problems using the latest tech including Microsoft Azure, DevOps, headless CMS and .Net Core.

  • Previously worked in a Solution / Technical Architect or Senior Developer role for at least four years
  • Extensive commercial experience of developing mobile first ASP .Net CMS and ecommerce websites
  • Demonstrable experience of technically leading such projects successfully to conclusion, on time/budget, to specification
  • Previously defined and written detailed functional and technical specifications for medium and large-scale solutions (£200k+)
  • Experience providing detailed task breakdowns and accurate estimation for the technical areas of website delivery
  • Organised, self-motivated and ambitious with a desire to lead a team of talented developers to create cutting edge websites
  • Excellent communication, consulting and client-facing skills, interfacing with both technical and non-technically focused clients

Desirable skills & experience;

  • Familiarity with the Kentico CMS platform, or another enterprise CMS such as Sitecore Umbraco or EPiServer
  • Experience scoping and integrating with 3rd party platforms, e.g. ERP, CRM, PSPs
  • Experience of dependency injection and unit testing
  • Demonstrate experience of using version control systems e.g. Git.
  • Experience of using JavaScript
  • Good awareness of UI Responsive development approaches, and a good understanding of various internet standards
  • High-level understanding of Windows Server and hosting environment aspects such as security, caching and CDN'
