Contract Description

TeamITG requires a talented Contract Solutions Architect to help lead a in a new and exciting project we are working towards.

The Solutions Architect will act as an internal consultant, advising teams and clients on how best to develop software solutions, sometimes getting their hands dirty and writing or reviewing code when required to solve particularly challenging problems, and building a knowledge base of the software products and services which TeamITG offer.

As a Solutions Architect, candidates must be capable not only of developing software or reviewing code when needed, but also demonstrate a firm grasp of the full Systems Analysis lifecycle: requirements capture, planning, project estimation and software design. Candidates must be able to provide leadership and mentoring of less experienced members of the development team.

TeamITG builds software using Agile (SCRUM) processes, and candidates should also have experience of working within such an organisation.

This role is all about working with others to solve difficult technical challenges. As such the candidate must be able to quickly grasp new programming languages and frameworks in order to support the wide range of technical challenges encountered on each project. The candidate must have exceptional communication skills, both written and oral; and should demonstrate experience of writing technical documentation.
