Job Details

Role Overview

Solution Architects are responsible for architecting solutions to meet the needs of BAE clients. Solution architects ensure that solutions developed within delivery programmes are fit-for-purpose.

Solution architects select and tailor the engineering processes that are used to develop the solution and govern the technical quality of the work as it is executed. As expert communicators with deep knowledge in more than one discipline, they coordinate the activities of engineering specialists to develop a design and work with Software Engineers and Service professionals to deliver enduring capability.

Typically, Solution Architects will work with very senior client stakeholders (up to CXO level) to understand, influence and shape requirements and solution approaches. They will deploy an excellent understanding of mainstream and emerging solution technologies and providers with a flair for evangelism of innovative approaches to business problems and the intellectual capability to rapidly develop expertise and authority in new areas.

Solution Architects must deliver solutions with consideration of through-life solution operation such as operational support and management, integration, change and extension, migration and re-platforming, productisation, re-use, withdrawal/retirement and disposal.

  • Owns and manages technical and solution risks. Works to reduce and mitigate at earliest practical opportunity 
  • Leads estimation efforts to rapidly develop an understanding of potential solution costs and delivery timescales including appropriate Service regimes for solutions in production operation

  • Ensures that appropriate standards (corporate, industry, national and international) are adhered to.
  • Works with quality and test management functions to ensure that proposed test strategies and approaches are fit-for-purpose.
  • Works with Delivery Assurance functions to agree how the quality and progress of a given solution delivery should be tracked, and acts an expert resource to support interventions on projects where solution quality or progress has become an issue.
