Job Description:

About Us We're an innovative tech consultancy - a team of problem solvers. Since 1993 we've been finding better ways to solve complex technology problems for some of the world's leading organizations and delivered solutions that millions of people use every day. We bring together experts from diverse backgrounds and experiences in a collaborative and open culture to deliver outstanding outcomes for our clients, and a stimulating and rewarding environment for our people. Our clients tell us that our people are the best they've worked with - not only because of their professional ability, but also their behavior and attitude. Everyone at BJSS has a genuine interest in technology, the software development process and/or infrastructure. We set high standards for ourselves which we will not compromise and as we grow we're always looking to hire like-minded, high caliber IT professionals. About the Role We're looking for proactive, driven problem-solvers, with strong stakeholder management skills who can communicate equally effectively all levels within an organization and will be credible in front of business and technology stakeholders. Typically, our technologists have a Computer Science or related degree and solid, enterprise-scale development/delivery experience. Candidates will have successfully operated as a hands-on Cloud Architect, ideally in a lead role, on large scale delivery projects - at least one of which will have been a complex, enterprise project or program.

Enough gravitas to be credible, influential as well as personable, with excellent communication skills, used to liaising with senior stakeholders and the delivery team. Comfortable operating in a range of client environments. Versatility - You will have worked in multiple IT disciplines such as Development, Infrastructure, Operations, DevOps and demonstrated technical excellence in all of these. BJSS is a technical company and unlike some organizations the line between 'Cloud', 'Infrastructure', 'Technical', 'Application' and 'Solution' architects is often blurred. You'll be just as adept at understanding software as you are at dealing with stakeholders, processes and working cultures. Skilled Practitioner - You will have extensive knowledge and experience of designing, documenting and facilitating complete Cloud solutions covering technology, applications and operational aspects across a wide range of platforms and business environments. Technical Vision - While your technical knowledge and experience is key, our clients often demand leading-edge solutions that provide a competitive advantage. You will have a keen interest in tracking the latest trends and technologies and be able to translate these into solutions that deliver real business benefits. Delivery Focus - BJSS resources are pragmatic, flexible and dependable with a keen focus on quality delivery. Ideally you will possess practical knowledge of agile/iterative development methodologies (e.g. SCRUM, XP, DSDM, RUP etc) and infrastructure/strategic frameworks such as ITIL and CoBIT. As with all our roles, delivery is key. You will understand the key drivers in successful IT delivery and support. A BJSS Cloud Architect will do what needs to be done to get a project delivered on time and to the right quality. Engagements Engagements may be delivered from our own offices or at one of our client office locations - an element of travel is part of the job. We undertake a wide variety of work and although no two engagements are the same, a BJSS engagement will typically fit into one of the below categories: Project Delivery - Working within an Agile team on the end-to-end delivery of cloud infrastructure projects for our clients, our Architects use best-practice techniques to manage scope, requirements and participate in solution design and delivery. Consultancy - Clients turn to us for Cloud Architecture-based consultancy services such as advice on strategy, technical roadmaps, change management, etc. These are both advisory and in project delivery capacity at client sites.
