Hands on application architect with experience of designing bespoke data services using REST, spring boot and AWS technologies.

The role sits within the architecture function within the programme, where we require an application architect with cloud and security controls experience to continue Audit and Data Access Controls design architecture.

The architect is expected to be a self-starter who can lead a team of technical staff to produce and deliver on detailed application designs. The individual will work with a range of internal and external technical stakeholders. The architect will report into the lead architect and work alongside a small team of technical architects.

The requirement is due to a required acceleration of delivery. This is due to the tasks including development of the audit components being on the critical path of the programme/portfolio delivery.
