On behalf of Nagarro, Academic Work seeks a solution architect with an entrepreneurial mindset who is ready to be a part of an exciting journey in an innovative company. You will be given opportunities to add value to challenging and complex assignments, while collaborating with world class technologists. The versatile environment here helps foster fresh perspectives and enables you to deliver high quality work while giving you the opportunity to learn and develop your personal and technical skills.
As a Solution Architect you will be in charge of projects and creating the overall technical architecture for the solutions that are being implemented. You will have the responsibility of identifying the best-in-class tech solutions to solve existing business problems, describe the structure, characteristics, behaviour, and other relevant aspects of software to project stakeholders, as well as define features, phases, and solution requirements. Thus, you will be bridging the gap between business problems and technology solutions.
The role requires excellent attention to detail, as the solution architect frequently needs to examine functional specifications and translate them into system guidelines that shape project development. You will meet directly with Nagarro's clients to demonstrate solutions rooted in innovative technology provided by Atlassian and answer important questions regarding software capabilities and requirements.
Leading software solutions
Maria Klose works as an Atlassian Solution Architect and says this about the role:
"I like working at Nagarro because it is a company that wants to digitalise, not only Norway, but the whole world. You get to work with interesting customers on a global scale. It is incredibly exciting and rewarding working as a Solution Architect in Nagarro's projects; helping different customers in different sectors you learn something new almost every day.
Your work day
As a Solution Architect at Nagarro, you will become the link between business and technology. While selling and interacting with the customer, as well as analysing the technological environment, you will develop and ensure the delivery of great solutions that fits the organizational need.
More specifically, you must define the most cost-effective solution that meets the requirements stated by the customer. The requirements should be based on a process that clearly defines how the organization is working, where key stakeholders are involved. By understanding the domain and how the tools can enable different ways of achieving the same goal, you will create solution descriptions and presentations that can translate into a language that non-technical stakeholders and management can understand.
At Nagarro we work in agile projects focusing on creating value. In your role as Solution Architect you will both work independently in projects and be assigned teams that you will mentor, where you provide project management support.
