Who you’ll be working with

You will be working within the Public Sector Digital and DevOps Unit across a number of major Public Sector clients. Primarily working with Open Source software, the team are first and foremost engineers, putting Software Engineering and professionalism at the heart of delivery. You will get to work with a set of technologies and ways of working that are starting to define the industry as well as work with excellent engineers, who are at the forefront of technology.

The focus of your role

The Digital Architect has the key role in defining and delivering a digital government. You should thrive on variety and enjoy working across the full lifecycle of a project: help define a client roadmap, create a vision for a service, work with agile teams to deliver, create an automated continuous delivery pipeline, work with devops teams to understand and improve the service in production. We want passionate, energetic technologists who can create solutions, work with clients, lead development teams and occasionally help with winning work. Join us and help grow our community of digital specialists, share ideas and innovate.

What you’ll do

As an Architect in our practice your day to day duties will include but not limited to:
• Delivering projects using Agile (preferably SCRUM).
• Defining digital solutions, including integration to legacy systems.
• Delivering web-based services, ReSTful APIs or complex integrations.
• Leading teams of software engineers

What you’ll bring

We are looking for architects across the practice, so don’t worry if you haven’t got strong experience in every skill listed below. If you can demonstrate some of these skills then we’d really like to talk to you.

Ideal skill set:
• Strong software engineering/development background (Java, Scala).
• Track record of defining digital solutions, including integration to legacy systems.
• Hands-on experience in delivering a micro-service based solution.
• Experience in delivering using Agile (preferably SCRUM).
• Experience in defining solutions using open-source.
• Experience in defining, delivering, improving Continuous Delivery pipelines.
• Experience, and passion for, leading teams of software engineers.
• Recent experience of delivering web-based services, ReSTful APIs or complex integrations.
• Background in client-facing roles.

Additional skills also of interest:
• Delivering in a cloud-based environment.
• Devops tooling and their place in a solution (puppet, docker etc).
• NoSQL databases – differences, selection criteria, delivery experience.
• Development frameworks such as Play!, dropwizard, angular.js, node.js.

And as a person you will have:
• A proven track record of delivering complex or cutting edge solutions within the IT industry.
• Strong interpersonal skills with the ability to work with clients to establish requirements in non-technical language.
• Able to translate business requirements into plausible technical solutions for articulation to other development staff.

What we’ll offer you

The chance to make a real difference at the heart of the digital transformation within the UK Public Sector.

Professional development. Accelerated career progression. An environment that encourages entrepreneurial spirit. It is all on offer at Capgemini. And although collaboration is at the core of the way we work, we also recognise individual needs with a flexible benefits package you can tailor to suit you.

Why we’re different

At Capgemini, we help organisations across the world become more agile, more competitive and more successful. Smart, tailored, often-groundbreaking technical solutions to complex problems are the norm. But so, too, is a culture that’s as collaborative as it is forward thinking. Working closely with each other, and with our clients, we get under the skin of businesses and to the heart of their goals. You will too.

Capgemini is proud to represent nearly 130 nationalities and its cultural diversity. Our holistic definition of diversity extends beyond gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, race, age and religion. Capgemini views diversity as everything that makes us who we are as an organization, including our social background, our experiences in life and work, our communication styles and even our personality. These dimensions contribute to the type of diversity we value the most: diversity of thought.

We want to make sure that we find the right people to work in our teams, and we know that working full-time isn’t necessarily right for everyone. So we’d love to hear from you if you feel you’re a great fit for this role, and would like to work flexibly. As an example, some of our team members work four days a week, but travel across the UK during their working days. Or you might prefer to work three days a week (in a job share scenario) with travel limited to Greater London. If you are the right person for this role, we’ll find the right working approach for you.
