The Opportunity

The Solutions Architect is one half of a strong partnership with a Project Manager. In this role you will split your time between technical leadership and oversight, technical pre-sales support and small development tasks. The expected technical skillset is that of a senior-level developer (at least four years’ experience at this level), though typically a Solutions Architect will focus primarily on smaller development tasks to be able to better support the project team and Project Manager.

  • Previously worked in a Solution / Technical Architect or Senior Developer role within an agency environment, for at least four years
  • Extensive commercial experience of developing mobile-optimised ASP .Net CMS and ecommerce websites
  • Demonstrable experience of technically leading such projects successfully to conclusion, on time/budget, to specification
  • Previously defined and written detailed functional and technical specifications for medium and large-scale solutions (£200k+)
  • Experience providing detailed task breakdowns and accurate estimation for the technical areas of website delivery
  • Organised, self-motivated and ambitious with a desire to lead a team of talented developers to create cutting edge websites
  • Excellent communication, consulting and client-facing skills, interfacing with both technical and non-technically focused clients

Desirable skills & experience

  • Familiarity with the Kentico CMS platform, or another enterprise CMS such as Sitecore or EPiServer
  • Experience scoping and integrating with 3rd party platforms, e.g. ERP, CRM, PSPs
  • Demonstrate experience of using version control systems e.g. Git.
  • Good awareness of UI Responsive development approaches, and a good understanding of various internet standards
  • High-level understanding of Windows Server and hosting environment aspects such as security, caching and CDN’s
