HR Director, Victoria James08 June 2021

About the role

We are looking for a Technical Architect to join our team to design and help deliver top-quality digital solutions. We work with a wide range of clients – the Royal Navy, Honda, Orange and many other leading global brands – and an even wider range of technology. We’re looking for an enthusiastic, experienced Technical Architect with plenty of.NET and Azure experience, who has worked with .NET-based content management systems like Sitecore and Umbraco.

Responsibilities

We work with a range of technology platforms, most of which are based upon .NET and Azure. We are looking for someone with experience working with enterprise-level software and smaller-scale solutions alike. You’ll need to have experience working with content management systems. Experience integrating systems is really important. And the ability to solve problems you may not have encountered before in a considered, intelligent manner.

Day to day, we’d expect you to be carrying out the below activities as part of your job:

  • Line managing approximately 3 other members of the engineering team
  • Mentoring and supporting your team, as well as the wider engineering team
  • Contributing to the wider effort to improve quality and ways of working in the engineering team
  • Writing code, either as part of working on a project or features & fixes for BAU
  • Peer reviewing code
  • Producing prototype / proof-of-concept work
  • Identifying appropriate technical solutions for clients and documenting them in technical design documents (where required)
  • Keeping up to date with Sitecore & Umbraco in terms of latest developments and features
  • Keeping up to date with cloud technology (primarily Azure, AWS) and the architectural possibilities with those platforms
  • Helping to improve ways of working within the team – across all areas

Requirements

We need you to be comfortable with the below technology:

  • C#, .NET
  • Sitecore, Umbraco
  • Azure
  • HTML, CSS
  • JavaScript/TypeScript
  • Modern infrastructure architecture patterns (including on-premises, hybrid and cloud)
  • Modern application architecture and integration patterns
  • Application security and best practices
  • Performance optimisation and testing techniques

Bonus points if you also have specific experience with:

  • E-commerce
  • Salesforce integration
  • Dynamics integration
  • Payment gateway integration
  • Agile methodologies (e.g. Scrum)
  • Modern SPA framework (e.g. React)

And it’s not essential but certainly wouldn’t hurt if you have had any exposure to:

  • Adobe Experience Manager
  • Java
  • SAP integration
  • AWS, GCP

Tech aside, these characteristics are very important to us:

  • Great problem solver
  • Enthusiasm for what you do
  • Be able to give and receive feedback with an open mind
  • Passionate about the quality of the end product
  • Have good awareness of industry trends, best practices and standards
  • Adaptable at the pace of an agency
  • Be able to take on the challenge of learning new tools and frameworks
  • To own your place in the team and help to continuously improve the Engineering team for everyone

We offer all the usual fun benefits associated with a digital agency plus flexible working hours, the ability to work from home and 27 days holiday, plus bank holidays. We welcome fresh opinions and strive for an inclusive environment.
