Job Description


Why should you read this advert?
Is the question most recruiters don't consider before posting content on the world wide web. Fundamentally, adverts should tease the role, detailing what is required and why it will benefit the reader whilst retaining just enough mystique to encourage the reader to follow it up with a call or email.
So with that in mind, I wanted to write an advert that summarises this role (bear with me) and hopefully makes you want to follow this up by getting in touch!
I am working in partnership with a Global Enterprise in the finance/banking space who are looking to recruit a Head of Solution Design to take up a key strategic position within their software engineering function. The position will see you lead a team of Solution Architects, helping shape and define a number of key customer-facing solutions crucial to the organisation's growth initiatives.
You will be given a lot of creative freedom and autonomy and will be expected to bring excellent leadership skills to the table, as well as the ability to engage with key stakeholders (both technical and non-technical). This role is a newly created position and they are fundamentally looking for a pure technologist, somebody with a background in software engineering who understands how technology impacts a service-driven business.
In terms of key responsibilities and requirements, you will be expected to bring a number of skills to the table. But rather than regurgitate the job description, I wanted to pick out a few key points:
Architecture - First and foremost, you need to have a background in software architecture and an understanding of a range of architectural styles and patterns including N-Tier, SOA and Microservices etc. You should have an excellent understanding of end-to-end design, be TOGAF certified (ideally) and have a wider understanding of major enterprise architecture frameworks, ideally on a global basis.
Software Engineering - Whilst not a role that involves any coding, you should ideally bring a strong engineering background to the table, as well as an understanding of a range of different technologies. The majority of their solutions are developed with the Java EE stack but wider knowledge of technologies such as .NET, C#, ReactJS, NodeJS and SQL would be highly beneficial. Moreover, an understanding of coding standards and engineering best practice would be a great asset for this position.
Communication - Fundamentally, strong communication skills are absolutely crucial for this position as you will be engaging with a wide array of stakeholders, including giving presentations and holding workshops. A background as a Technical Consultant would therefore be great as those soft skills will be paramount in order to excel in this position.
Methodologies & Processes - Finally, a strong understanding of modern software engineering principles (i.e. Agile, Scrum, TDD, BDD, DevOps, Continuous Integration etc.) would be great should you want to be considered for this position.
Ultimately, you should be a confident and passionate technical leader who wants to bring your own ideas and suggestions to the table, rather than follow the ideas and suggestions of others. Its that small characteristic that separates the leaders from the followers and that is perhaps the most pressing requirement this organisation are looking for from you.
Still interested?
If the answer is a resounding 'yes' then I hope you decide to follow this up by either calling me on or . Alternatively, if you are reading this job advert at work then send me a quick email to and I will make sure I respond.
As always, anything we discuss will remain completely confidential. - provided by Dice
