Enterprise Architect Manchester £80-120,000 (doe) plus car and benefits

Complete business transformation programme underpinned by a huge technology investment and re-invention.

An opportunity to take an existing spaghetti of technology and implement something brand new and genuinely business changing.

Two key parts to this role:

1/ Architecture of brand new enterprise solutions for a business transforming from bricks & mortar to fully integrated multi-channel retailer. Building and managing a small team of software architects (not essential, if line management isn’t your thing we can structure the team accordingly). The development and test teams(s) are in-house and with one trusted 3rd party. You will be the Technical Authority at the leadership table, guiding the IT leadership team around the more complex of technical matters.

2/ be involved in the early planning of cutting edge solutions for the future. Artificial Intelligence will disrupt this niche and traditional industry, not impossible and in play already in Silicon Valley. Can you do it in Manchester!?

We are looking for

  • Experience managing enterprise scale systems architecture, ideally within retail, b2c type businesses
  • Software development excellence – broad programming background, practical knowledge of DevOps, TDD, BDD …
  • Relevant qualifications such as TOGAF, and a strong peer / industry network and affiliations
  • A high energy technology evangelist with a commercial outlook to take on the big picture, order the spaghetti, design and build

There is appetite for change, lots of ideas and excitement, but the architect needs to make sense of it all, design and deliver.

For more information and details please contact All communication is of course in complete confidence. Thank you.
