What will I be doing?
We are looking for a talented Architect to support ambitions to build an enterprise grade digital gambling platform, working across a varied technology stack, providing high level designs, quality requirements, and guidance backed by good design principles and best practices to support their engineers through implementation.
Your architecture and communication skills will be essential to convey both high level concepts to non-technical stakeholders, as well as holding technical design sessions with engineers in order to achieve key results. You will possess sharp problem-solving skills and creativity to ensure the company are pragmatically evolving their architecture towards strategic goals.
As a member of the architecture team, you will also contribute to the future state architecture planning, providing clear intent of platform evolution and provide guide rails for engineering teams to operate efficiently through implementation.
There may be future opportunities to lead the team of architects, helping to define and align and direction of the architecture strategy to meet the business goals.
The platform is .Net, using RabbitMQ, WebAPI and WCF to connect services, and MySQL and MongoDB to manage vast amounts of data. In addition, we use React and NodeJS that power the best customer experience in the market. They use both AWS and On-Premise infrastructure, Kubernetes and Service Mesh based architectures to optimise their service design. You should have experience in these technologies or concepts to drive our platform forward.
Their platform supports many integrated services from 3rd parties. You should be able to understand these complexities, and ensure they have a robust architecture to limit the impact when things occasionally go wrong.
In addition to the technical skills to support the platform, you should be experienced in DevOps, Change & Release Management, and Operational Excellence to ensure they not only build a great platform, but we can transition and operate it at high volumes for 24/7/365, ensuring the end users of the clients are entertained.
Ideally, you will have experience working within a highly regulated industry.
