Experienced Solutions Architect? Want to utilise your skills to make a huge impact?

At NHG, we’re investing in our tech. We’ve kicked off a large programme of Agile projects looking to deliver some vital wins for our staff and customers. To keep pace with our tremendous growth, we're constantly looking for ways to improve using new technologies.

One of the key features of our digital programme (Workwise) is an online portal, developed on Microsoft’s Azure platform, to enable residents to self-serve by accessing a range of online services anywhere, anytime. The networking infrastructure is the core backbone of bringing all of this together and enabling multiple applications to communicate in a seamless way. Your work on the design and development will have a huge impact on our customer satisfaction, so that all our residents can love where they live.

You will be responsible for creating and maintaining the roadmap of technical products, acting as the subject matter expert in Cloud Computing Technologies (including Azure) and the software development process. You will work with cross functional teams in a collaborative way and play a key role in each phase of the software/product development lifecycle. Working as the Cloud specialist you will be developing products for our customers as well as configuring tools and technologies to enhance the value they derive.

You’ll be collaborating with our colleagues outside of ICT through your work supporting a number of applications. We’ll expect you to use their perspective in your work, understanding how their operations relate to your development activities and ensuring that all technical considerations are addressed. You’ll be confident to interact with business users, product managers and developers to envision, model and provide initial models and designs that can be built.

If you are an experienced Solution Architect with strong communication skills and a keen interest in emerging technology, then we want to hear from you!
