Solution Architect

Valtech is looking for a Solution Architect. If you can recognize yourself as someone who can support our local and regional teams in selling and delivering solutions that exceed client expectations, and someone who is responsible and can deliver, then we are looking for you! Delivering innovation with a purpose and enabling clients to anticipate tomorrow’s trends to connect more directly with consumers across their digital touch points.

What will you be doing?

As Solution Architect working at Valtech you bridge the gap between business and technology. You interact with stakeholders on all levels of the client organization and are able to translate business challenges and goals into sound and solid technical solutions which bring value to and help support the goals of the client.

You are able to translate opportunities for improvement, or the necessity of change, into a clear narrative towards the client organization, building support for transformation at the sponsor level.

You support client teams in the discovery and foundation phases in the search for future-proof solutions on any scale within a client project. During, and directly after, the foundation you are able to translate business into technology on a level detailed enough for agile teams to understand and transform into tangible requirements to kick-start development afterwards.

  • Minimum of 5 - 7 years of experience in architecting and design on enterprise level together with a minimum of 5+ years experience in software architecture or development
