Job Description

As a Business Solutions Architect, you will help us define, and execute against, our vision for global expansion and architectural design across William Hill's Trading Platform. You will be responsible for working with our Product Owners and business stakeholders to design solutions that put the best possible foundation into place for William Hill and our future growth.

You will be comfortable in supporting all aspects of the architecture role in an Agile delivery through planning, design, implementation, testing, releasing and feedback. You will be hands on when you need to be and will drive adoption through practical application and not through excessive documentation. Though you will be focussed on delivery within the Trading Tech department, there is opportunity and autonomy to drive good solutions design, sound architectural practices and consistent approach across the whole of William Hill. Whether our goals are commercially led, business driven or technically focussed you will be the key evangelist of your supporting solutions and the benefits provided.

  • You'll ensure that all designs meet the business needs, are clearly articulated, meet our standards of quality and are well communicated outside of your architecture peers so that our teams clearly understand the why and the how, not just the what.

  • Your focus on the customer will drive out the core set of needs to influence your designs. These will incorporate process changes across multiple domains including security, operations risk, audit, compliance etc.

  • We'll rely on your guidance on opportunities for technical adoption supporting our business targets. Working in partnership with Product Owners, Engineering Managers and Developers, you'll make sure teams can realise the architecture and understand the approach by flexing your communication style to suit the audience.

  • You'll be responsible for the architectural design, governance adherence and stakeholder engagement for all of your solutions.

  • Maintain a strong customer focus ensuring regular communication and accurate reporting.

  • Raise and resolve any architectural issues/risks that could have implications against the security model or would be detrimental to the delivery of our services.

  • Engaging and directing any 'Proof of Concept' or prototyping of solutions.

  • You'll get to work with like-minded individuals in great teams based across the globe. All working in Agile delivery methods and deploying into Amazon Web Services (AWS).

  • You'll have the autonomy to flex your strategy and solution design across a truly global product that drives the heart of our sports betting for William Hill worldwide.

  • We have a generous personal learning budget joined with 10% learning time throughout each month to help you learn and grow.

    Skills needed

  • You'll already be a solution architect, technical business analyst or principal developer looking for your next adventure.

  • You'll have a passion for solution design and know your REST from your AMQP, your JSON from your Avro, your TLS from your TTL and everything in between.

  • You will have a well-rounded technical repertoire covering software design patterns, infrastructure design, business and process analysis, messaging systems, data stores, web-based systems and what makes it all tick.

  • You're driven by solving problems at enterprise scale in a near real-time environment where the data moves every second of every day and cannot stop without significant business impact.

  • Ideally, you'll be certified in AWS as a Solution Architect. If you don't have the certifications yet, then don't worry, as we'll help you get there.

  • Practical experience of UML design and business modelling tools such as ArchiMate would be a benefit but not a deal breaker.
