Covering all aspects of information technology architecture, this discipline at QinetiQ focuses on the end to end creation of solutions as well as the technical aspects of implementation, working with both business stakeholders to understand requirements as well as technical experts to ensure delivery.
As a business we use industry standards for architecture design and definition, such as TOGAF, and have a maturing architecture governance framework through which new solutions and designs can be assured. We are also in the process of drawing together reusable design patterns, template architectures and standards to aid with the future design of new systems.
As a successful candidate in this space, you could be involved in helping to shape our global digital strategy as part of our Chief Information Officer team, helping to design solutions for use across the UK business as core shared capabilities or building specific platforms to aid with customer delivery into QinetiQ’s core markets.
In addition, you will work across a range of technologies, including high security system designs, large scale private cloud platforms, network services, cloud platforms, as well as line of business applications and solutions such as software development stacks, data analytics and high performance computing simulation & modelling.
Do you have experience in enterprise and solution and technical architecture? Are you starting out on your architecture journey and are looking to transition from hands on technical disciplines into this space? Experience of architecture standards such as TOGAF would be desirable but not essential. More importantly, do you have broad knowledge of the information technology domain, good stakeholder management skills, ability to elicit and elaborate requirements, as well as being able to think big picture to draw together conceptual ideas to produce workable solutions. If the answers to these are yes, then we would love to hear from you.
