How can you make a real impact when you’re a small fish in a massive pond?
Most large companies with a complex technical landscape have between 25 and 100 architects, often split between enterprise, solutions, software, cloud, infrastructure, data, integration, security and UI/UX.
It’s an exhausting list to write, so I can only imagine how exhausting competing to be heard is.
What’s the answer?
Join one of the biggest names in fitness on their mission to inspire healthier nations globally.
After conquering the UK, they’ve been growing rapidly across Europe, the Middle East and the US, but here’s what matters to you.
You’d be the third member of the global architecture team that leads a group-wide technology vision and roadmap, focusing on providing reusable technology services globally.
A smaller team means you’ll have the freedom to impact and drive initiatives across the business with the support of an 87-person tech team and a modern technical approach that includes a distributed Azure-cloud landscape, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, CI/CD and microservices, event-driven and behaviour-driven architectures.
You’ll help them achieve their big goal of moving to a single ‘one web and mobile platform to rule them all’.
Finally, you’ll work for one of the most socially responsible fitness companies around, with a history of making very human decisions to make fitness more inclusive for disabled people and females across the globe.
You’ll be from a software development background with a healthy amount of solutions and technical architecture experience.
If you’re tech agnostic but in cloud-based microservices, event-driven or behaviour-driven, that would be more important than specific tech skills.
You’ve architected solutions for companies with large numbers of users or customers and customer experience at the core.
Typically, we’d expect to see e-commerce, retail or subscription-based software or something of that scale.
