Senior Solution Architect | Remote

Job Category: Developer Role
Job Type: Full Time
Job Location: Remote - UK Business Hours


About the Role:


In this role you will design and lead the development of software solutions contributing to all phases of the development lifecycle.

You will architect the solution for projects, drawing on your experience and technical know-how and your understanding of the client’s business needs but also respecting the established “play-book” adopted at Elemental Concept.

The design of any solution will not only meet the identified business needs and nuances of the Client but will also be built to enable scale whilst further considering stability and security.

You will take a lead role on the project to ensure the successful delivery of the solution, defining the technical requirements for each of the functional stories within a project and working ahead of the team to “unblock” the more technically challenging aspects of the project.

You will remain “hands-on” during the build phase, providing ongoing mentoring and guidance to the team and delivering code when needed.

The role will require a high level of collaboration with CTO and other members of the Senior Tech Team to ensure alignment with global organisation on tech stack, processand workflow.

Our assignments are broad in nature, and varied, requiring ingenuity and innovation in the design of the solution. No project is the same, each requiring a different approach.

We adopt an agile methodology, working in self-managed teams and collaborating closely with our Clients.

You will get to work alongside highly motivated and technically gifted colleagues and interesting Clients allowing you to expand your skill-set whilst also imparting your knowledge to the wider team.

Participate in product discovery and requirements gathering with customers, contributing to the definition of the functional solution and producing delivery estimates
Define the architectural vision that guides the solution as a basis for mutual understanding between all parties involved in the development (customer and Elemental).

Identify how the component should interact with each other and external systems.
Analyse the business impact that certain technical choices may have on a client’s business processes.
Evaluate project constraints to find alternatives, alleviate risks, and perform process re-engineering if required.
Collaborate with Elemental and Client project management and IT development teams to improve the architecture.
Control the entire development process within a project supervising and guidingdevelopment teams, adopting agile scrum delivery methodology
Notify stakeholders about any issues connected to the architecture.
Fix technical issues as they arise.
Conduct system architecture evaluation across various client businesses (due diligence)
Continuously researches emerging technologies and proposes changes to the existing architecture.
