Job Description

Digital Solutions Architect | Financial Services | London


I'm partnering an outstanding banking organisation in London who are undergoing a major digital transformation and require a Digital Solutions Architect to help in their quest for digital banking excellence. They have been investing heavily in digital, having recognised that this should be their core area of growth with more and more customers going online whether it be via mobile, tablet or laptop.

They have committed to a material investment in digital, recognizing that digital should become the core growth engine of the bank. To support this growth, they are planning to double the size of their digital team in order to deliver a differentiated digital experience. They need people who are excited about being part of this challenge.

The role of the Digital Solutions Architect will be to deliver technological strategies, using your expertise to recommend solutions to meet the bank's transformation objectives. The Digital Solutions Architect will act as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) to the Digital Transformation Office, providing project specific direction.

The core responsibilities of this role will be:
-To use your knowledge of the latest technologies, and innovative thinking, and align them to the bank's digital strategy, acting as a consultant where necessary
-To drive customer engagement by understanding, promoting and developing the potential for new technologies and services which could be introduced and assist with the development of a unique identity
-To use your expertise in identifying opportunities for investment in the digital portfolio
-To take a hands on approach with the development of prototypes for iOS and Android applications
-To co create the design of digital strategy, solutions and roadmaps, liaising with key stakeholders

In order for the Digital Solutions Architect to succeed in this position, they will need to:
-Be able to relay technical information to non-technical stakeholders
-Demonstrate a technical expertise in middleware, such as Java, SpringBoot, Dockers, MicroServices Architecture and REST
-An ability to hands on code in Java or Objective C for iOS and Android applications
-A familiarity with Continuous Development tools (GIT, Jenkins, Postman)

The successful candidate will have a strong background in Digital Transformation from a financial services background, with a focus on customer journey.
This opportunity will have you working in a progressive and collaborative environment with a generous basic salary plus bonus and some great additional benefits.
