Solution Architect - Retail Technology

I’m interested


Leeds - City Walk

Contract type


Job description

We know what happens #behind the bet – and it’s looking pretty good.

Our retail and online worlds are moving ever closer, and as a Solution Architect you’ll be well placed to make sure that colleagues from both sides of our business keep talking and sharing knowledge. You must be able to operate confidently as part of a fully-fledged Agile team, working closely with Product Owners to create simple, scalable and ground breaking solutions for our customers and colleagues in shops across the UK.

You can look forward to meeting people who are passionate about their craft. It’s up to you to gather requirements, shaping and translating business visions into coherent solutions. It’s important that you’re already a senior / lead developer or architect (making you a credible and inspiring leader) and can translate jargon for the non-techies in the audience. With your technical expertise, we think you’ll take this all in your stride.

You’re no shrinking violet - a confident and robust character, you’ll be diplomatic, but not afraid to challenge and debate with colleagues. We’ll need you to pitch in and get involved with code from time to time, so a background in Java development from a high transactional, high availability environment such as gaming or e-commerce would be ideal.

It would also help if you’ve had exposure to front-end delivery and development including Javascript, Nodejs and React. We’d also like to hear about your experience with Microservices, VMWare, Puppet, Docker and Cloud technologies. You’ll be immersed in sporting data here, so if you’re a sports fan yourself (or at least happy to pick up the jargon) you’ll fit right in.
