Burns Sheehan are exclusively partnering with a market leading technology business, who have featured in the Top 10 companies to work for in the UK, to find a Chief Architect to lead their architectural technology footprint. As the company embarks on a period of significant growth, this Chief Architect will be responsible for building and defining the technology architecture, strategy and function on what is currently a greenfield project, enabling the organisation to scale effectively from a tech-first perspective.
The Chief Architect will sit as an individual contributor at first, operating at the centre of the business, reporting directly into the CTO and collaborating with technology teams and senior leaders across the business, including the Executive team, Chief Product Officer, Head of Data and Head of Engineering, to align technology architecture
with the overarching business goals. There is currently no architectural presence within the organisation, so this person really will have full ownership and autonomy over its implementation, governance and principles.About you:
- Naturally, you will have a strong enterprise and technical architectural and engineering background, working in a high growth, technology led business with a delivery mindset.
- A proven background defining technology strategy and architecting solutions with experience incorporating Application, Data, Product and Technology Architecture.
