application architect

Find a new home for your FinTech career.

We’re looking for an Application Architect to join our Strategic Business Enablement division, at our Cape Town head office (although you’ll mostly work-from-home during the ongoing national lockdown).

You’ll have 2+ years experience in architecture and 7+ years experience in IT,  while an architecture-related qualification (like TOGAF) will be advantageous. Also, you’ll have Software Development experience, especially Java.

You’ll be familiar with: architectural viewpoint modelling, API Service interface design and documentation (REST / JSON), system integration design, security patterns, relational database modelling and design, AS-IS / TO-BE modelling and documentation, event-based architecture, open source development frameworks (Java, Springboot, Angular, RabbitMQ, GIT), Devops, API gateways, IAM patterns, and Oracle / MySQL databases. Also, ideally, you’ll be competent in UML and Archimate modelling.

In this role, you’ll need to have both a strategic and operational view of the architecture: defining and maintaining the strategic architecture blueprint and roadmap, as well as designing architecture for projects on a ongoing basis. You’ll need to be able to work on multiple projects and initiatives at the same time, as well as assist with project-scoping and sizing while helping define solutions using repeatable and re-usable patterns.

We’re looking for someone who’s knowledgeable about current IT trends and can work in our Agile methodology. Also, you’ll need good interpersonal skills to assist the BA’s, project managers and developers with Agile ceremonies (sprint planning, backlog grooming, etc).
