Wat ga je doen?

PostNL is increasingly developing into a technology-driven organization in which data and analytics play a crucial role. A fully connected data ecosystem is needed to enable PostNL's tech-driven future strategy. The data ecosystem is created by the Insights department, making the department a prerequisite for a successful digital transformation.
The Solution Architect's objective is to formulate guidelines and starting points within the technical domain at in order to ultimately achieve the maximum return from the software and platforms infrastructure. 

As a Solution architect, you monitor that new developments are in line with the target architecture as defined at enterprise level. You do this by proactively looking along with the developers and providing advice and insights. In doing so, you work closely with the domain architects. You formulate guidelines and starting points at the level of solution architecture with regard to (Cloud) applications and the platform. With new initiatives you make solution designs, in which you combine (non-) functional requirements with the impact on software and hardware. You also coordinate the implementation of (Cloud) connections (SDI/SDA).
You act as the first point of contact for (Cloud) solution architecture and, together with the senior Engineers, focus on cross-domain topics with a view to the further development of the platform. Furthermore, you like to guide new developers and to take all employees of the platform along in current developments in terms of architecture and tooling and draw up development guidelines.
