Enterprise Solution Architect
Why is our Architecture team your next step? Worldpay's growth is due in large part to our highly-sophisticated products and services. By offering some of the most advanced and user-friendly payments processing options available, we continue our growth by beating our competitors. Enter the need for skilled engineers who can build the tools we need to continually improve upon our product offerings. From software to technical architecture and more, investing in our team of engineers is investing in our future.
The Enterprise Solution Architect turns business requirements into high level solutions taking into account target architecture, platform capabilities and business processes. Will often coordinate across functions aligning business needs.
How will you contribute? In this role, you'll work with senior stakeholders across functions to design end-to-end solutions for strategic business initiatives, as well as identify solution design options (e.g., Build / Buy / Partner) and analyse their strengths and weaknesses in order to present a recommendation with rationale. You'll define required business capabilities and align them with business operating models, technical platforms, technical integrations and underlying infrastructure.
A key part of the role is to drive architectural decisions at an initiative level to advance the IT roadmap, including the assessment of new technologies and technical debt that best fit business and project needs. You'll conceive system interfaces and business application prototypes, and influence the shaping of future products by contributing to the framework (architecture) used across multiple products or systems. You'll provide multi-layered technical expertise for next generation initiatives and work with Worldpay's Senior Leadership Team on high level, complex issues.
Why you? You'll have previous experience in enterprise solution architecture and experience building large scale and reliable systems. We are looking for deep expertise across different technology domains, for example Applications, Data, Infrastructure, Operations and Security, and fluency in most IT business architecture areas including business process design and governance.
Experience operating in an agile environment is important, ideally using the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). You'll have experience facilitating workshops involving cross-functional stakeholders, and have the ability to present to senior leadership internally (CIO / CTO / CSO) and at external conferences. Experience in the payments or financial technology industry is advantageous. You'll have wide-ranging experience, using professional concepts and company objectives to resolve complex issues in creative and effective ways. We are also looking for program implementation skills, including project portfolio management and the planning, reporting and directing the work of others across multiple implementation projects concurrently. Join the Team. We lift economies and communities by advancing the way the world pays, banks and invests.
