About this opportunity…

Are you an experienced Solution Architect looking for an amazing career opportunity to help shape the future of New Payments Architecture, using cutting edge technology, cloud hosting, SaaS services and building a new greenfield payments platform, helping us navigate the regulatory landscape and define our products of the future?

We’re looking for Solution Architect to join our Instant Payments UK Lab.  The lab is focussed on delivering tech modernisation across the payments. Working closely with industry, the team is replacing the complexity of the existing payments landscape with a new, more efficient infrastructure that will benefit from enhanced security and resilience.

This multi-million-pound initiative has a new partnership with a leading FinTech company and is looking for talented individuals who are interested in working with new and exciting technologies, such as Cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS).

About us…

Like the modern Britain we serve, we’re evolving. Investing billions in our people, data and tech to transform the way we meet the ever-changing needs of our 26 million customers. We’re growing with purpose. Join us on our journey and you will too…

What you’ll need:

  • Strong Software Architecture background and knowledge of agile development practices with a history of technical leadership

  • Experience across the entire software development life cycle from inception, through build to production.

  • You appreciate and acknowledge the impact of system design decisions on scalability, resilience, and supportability.

  • Experience of API design and architecture patterns, messaging technologies (Kafka, MQ)

  • Exposure to modern application frameworks (Spring boot Java etc)

  • Exposure to Open Banking architecture framework

  • Designing complex applications and integration patterns

We’d welcome the following desirable skills and experience:

  • Knowledge of delivery of microservices to production

  • Exposure to Systems Thinking

  • New Payments Architecture

Our focus is to ensure we are inclusive every day, building an organisation that reflects modern society and celebrates diversity in all its forms. We want our people to feel that they belong and can be their best, regardless of background, identity, or culture. We were one of the first major organisations to set goals on diversity in senior roles, create a menopause health package, and a dedicated Working with Cancer initiative. And it is why we especially welcome applications from under-represented groups. We are disability confident. So, if you would like reasonable adjustments to be made to our recruitment processes, just let us know.

We also offer a wide-ranging benefits package, which includes:

•   A generous pension contribution of up to 15%

•   An annual performance-related bonus

•   Share schemes including free shares.

•   Benefits you can adapt to your lifestyle, such as discounted shopping.

•   30 days’ holiday, with bank holidays on top

•   A range of wellbeing initiatives and generous parental leave policies
