We've got an extraordinary new opportunity for a Data Solutions Architect to join the Data Architecture and Strategy team.

As part of this role, you will define the UK data solution architecture whilst having a clear understanding of how this relates to the technology stack. You'll make sure that the current approved data hardware and software architecture is followed and adheres to the agreed licensing and OPEX constraints, whilst also being the recognised Data SME and the point of contact for the Enterprise data assets.

Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to contribute to our data strategy and will advocate code and platform best practice. You will be accountable for maintaining the visibility and awareness of major data projects across the entire lifecycle while being continuously involved in all major data projects to audit but also to provide support and consultancy during the estimation, planning, design, development and testing phases.

You will also be required to work closely with, manage, guide and support the 3rd Party Data Design team (onshore/offshore), to ensure that data architecture and design principles are followed.

  • Previous demonstrable experience in a similar Data Solutions Architect role within a sophisticated technical environment
  • Have extensive knowledge and understanding of both Cable and Mobile systems such as Netpulse network service assurance
  • Strong commercial experience with ETL tooling
  • A good working knowledge and experience with cloud technologies, specifically GCP
  • Experience with Data Modelling Tools

We'd also love you to bring;

  • TOGAF Aware but Preferably Qualified
  • PRINCE project methodology
