As one of the founders of the global MACH Alliance, we are strong believers in composable architectures for enterprise-grade digital (commerce) solutions and experience an overwhelming interest and demand for these services from clients.

This role is to some extend location agnostic, but we’re especially looking for talented individuals in Germany, France, Netherlands, UK, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland.

What do we expect from you?

  • As a Senior MACH Architect, you’ll play an active and hands-on role in supporting our global organization in delivering solutions, relying on MACH (Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless) principles, that exceed the expectations of our enterprise clients.
  • As a member of the global team, you will support, educate, and architect on our most critical composable best-of-breed client-engagements across the agency.
  • You have a well-developed business sense, and you understand what success looks like for our clients. That means you can translate your technical knowledge into business solutions with positive impact on our client's business
  • You will support our teams (primarily teams in your own region) in selling, guiding, and delivering solutions that exceed the expectations of our clients. You like being the source of guidance and steering for our teams and, if necessary, engage with clients to direct the program. A significant part of your time will be client faced and billable to clients.
  • You want to help solidify Valtech as a thought leader through numerous opportunities to present at conferences, do content creation and be an active player in the wider community, both internally as well as externally
  • You will play an active role in our Valtech Global Craft Circle (our global Community of Practice). We see this role being a natural member of its inner circle, helping define the way we support and continuously improve our approach of working with the MACH principles at scale.
  • You report to our Global MACH Director and work closely with country leaders and our sales and delivery organizations across the Group.

We are looking for:

  • An experienced and senior technical professional with an entrepreneurial spirit and maker mentality, who thrives with and are not scared of getting “your hands dirty” when engaging deeply into client engagements.
  • Strong personal belief in “getting things done right” with the ability to make effective decisions and see them through
  • Experience on leading and growing technology teams and services
  • Flexibility and ability to adjust on-the-fly to new demands and business environments as well as sense of urgency
  • Strong interpersonal, communication, intercultural and people skills required for working with internal teams as well as client teams across different locations and cultures with success.

In addition, we’ll also be looking for:

  • A proven background in architecting, implementing, leading, and delivering enterprise-scale projects/programs following the principles behind MACH (Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless).
  • A team-player with great knowledge and understanding of the key platform players in the space of composable best-of-breed technology, most importantly: commercetools, Contentful, Contentstack, VTEX, Fluent and Amplience.
  • Proven cloud and serverless experience, preferably via Azure, AWS, or GCP.
  • A MSc in engineering or similar and at least 10 years of relevant working experience
  • Ability and willingness to travel - you can expect roughly 25% of your time to be away from home.
  • Fluent in English – both spoken and written.
  • Experience from working in an agency/consulting business like Valtech would be an advantage
  • Note to non-EU nationals: We require a valid work permit in one of the above-mentioned countries.
