Contractor: Solution Architects

Flint is looking for Solution Architects to support our client, a global provider of database and analytics-related software, products, and services.

Our client’s Solution Architects are among the best in the world. They have to be, because their customers are also among the best in their worlds; Siemens, Volvo, GM and Procter and Gamble are just some of their leading-edge clients. So, the bar’s set high, because their customers demand the best.

Of course, you’re a technology expert, but our client work very closely with their customers, so you’re a great communicator, too, with an ability to see both the widescreen and the close-up. And when they say communicate, they mean you’ll be talking with everyone from the DBA to the C Suite; comfortable and confident that you’ll deliver the best possible solutions for your customer. So, you’ll have a great deal of responsibility, but you’ll also have the autonomy to make your own decisions, and what you’ll learn and gain in experience just isn’t found anywhere else.

Which is also true of Vantage software; our client calls it pervasive data intelligence, because it transforms data into answers, into real solutions for their customers. Add this to your already considerable toolbox of skills, and you can see why our customers demand you’re the very best. Always.

You’ll be a ‘trusted advisor’ to your client; your technical expertise, experience, not forgetting your business skills, means you can seek out and develop opportunities for solutions that meet your customer’s challenges. You’ll also be aware of our competitors’ assets because your customer will need confidence in your understanding of their data challenges. Our clients doesn’t expect you to be an expert in everything; in fact, they’d prefer you to have wide and far-reaching knowledge and experience, with perhaps a specialisation field or two that you are an expert in. And whatever your particular experience, you can explain, demonstrate and deliver right across the board in your customer’s organisation.

And, though ‘passion’ is a little over-used these days, our client means it when they say they’ll recognise, develop and transform your passion for your customer’s success into your own personal success. So, if your passion for real, deliverable solutions to some of the biggest data challenges in the world matches our clients, and what you’ve already read appeals to your sense of adventure, come and work for our client.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Actively work on the design, implementation and roll-out of solutions that meet your customer’s challenges – so you’ll need to see and assess your customer’s ‘as is’ before you can provide them with their ‘to be’ solutions

  • Provide technical leadership to the implementation team and ensure that other relevant SMEs are engaged at appropriate points throughout the implementation cycle – you’ll also work with the extended consulting team to scope projects and develop appropriate SOWs, project plans and risk analyses
  • Build scalable, fault-tolerant, and highly available data services.
  • Work closely with teams to ensure business functionality and SLAs are met.
  • Consult for optimal design of database environments, analyzing complex distributed production deployments, and making recommendations to optimize performance.
  • Develop innovative solutions to complex business and technology problems.
  • Conduct technical sessions for internal teams, partners and customers.

Skills and Experience:

  • ‘Passionate’ and enthusiastic about data, analytics, etc
  • Have at least 10+ years hands-on experience in architecting, designing, delivering or optimizing Data Warehouse and/or Data Lake solutions
  • A clear, confident and persuasive communicator, who can make a clear and understandable logical argument and successfully defend their position
  • Have a keen interest and understanding of developments in the data and analytic technology world
  • Possess strong analytical and problem-solving skills, and, of course, be proficient in both written and spoken English

  • Demonstrate relevant domain expertise in at least one industry vertical, eg Government Finance
