Head of Architecture - Platform/Data/API/MicroServices
I'm looking for a Head of Architecture for an amazing, technology led business in central Manchester. Managing a team of Tech leads, you'll be able to set technology strategy and coding standards across the organisations core platforms. The role will work alongside the Execs to "discuss the art of possible" from a tech perspective and deliver forward thinking solutions for the group. I need someone who can advise on the best technical approach quickly. This isn't a role where a build first or over engineering mentality will work. You'll understand R&D intrinsically, but will also look at wider products/off the shelf when required. Such a good opportunity to be creative, define strategy and deliver fit for purpose commercial solutions to a growing business. The role is suited to someone who understands platform architecture and microservices, but won't suit someone who remains in the detail. There is very little technical debt, following a period of transformation. The core infrastructure is built on AWS with Snowflake used for data and Salesforce as the CRM. APIs are currently developed in Java. This is just for context, given I am looking for an innovator and someone who offers solutions, rather than being rigid with their technology knowledge.
£100k + SLT bonus. The business is Manchester based, but embraces modern working patterns.
