IT-Application Solution architect Senior


our client strives to offer its customers a unique banking & insurance experience. Customer-centric thinking has been part of our strategy for years and is embedded in company’s DNA. Being both a bank and an insurer, we know our clients well. Consequently, we have a better insight into their behaviour and needs and we can offer them a complete product offer pro-actively.
This is supported by our leads framework, using big data technology, own built applications and Adobe Campaign, all driven by AI models.


We are looking for a passionate senior IT Solution Architect to reinforce our ART Leads & Insights.
As solution architect, operating in an agile context, you are in contact with multiple stakeholders, IT experts etc. It is key to understand business drivers and requirements and define the best possible IT solution taking into account target domain and enterprise architecture. This way you provide the bridge between specific business requirements and the solution that is needed to support them.

More specifically, in this function you focus on the further development and improvement of the leads framework that supports our data driven campaigns. Within this framework, data is transformed into relevant leads driven by AI models and business insights and delivered to customers. Hence, not only the framework itself, but also knowledge of the data environment and a keen interest in AI are prerequisites for the job, allowing you to maintain an E2E view of the solution.


Your Tasks
Understand, analyze and challenge the business needs and translate them into a fit-for-purpose IT solution creating value to our customers. Both with a business focus – ensuring the solution meets the business requirements – but also in line with our target enterprise architecture vision of which you gain sound knowledge.
Before the start of a project or epic, you make a first assessment by defining a high level solution and providing ballpark effort / cost estimates. In this 'feasibility' study you must be able to start from less structured input and approach it conceptually, always with an E2E view. You identify the different solution alternatives, you investigate their feasibility in terms of scope, budget, TTM (time-to-market) and A2E (Ability to Execute) within the IT application landscape.
Elaboration of the E2E IT solution architecture is done in close collaboration with all stakeholders, system architect, enterprise architect etc. Solutions need to be future proof and aligned with domain architecture, considering both functional and non-functional aspects.
At the end of the feasibility study, you deliver the crucial IT deliverables and ensure a handover to agile team. Afterwards you remain available during the execution of the work and collaborate with the team to ensure high-quality deliveries.
  • You give direction/input to the domain architecture and work together with the enterprise architect and system architect.
  • You support and help drawing the roadmap for further future development of the leads framework, including the positioning of the various tools (e.g. Adobe Campaign) and you translate this roadmap into concrete solutions.
  • You are aware of technology trends and evolutions within the domain.
  • You take smooth operational decisions in a well-founded manner. The impact of the decisions is clearly defined.
  • You act as co-entrepreneur for your internal business customer, e.g. advising where technology can be an enabler to realize business ideas. You are actively involved in the IT architecture community and assist colleagues where needed.



We work in a (scaled) agile way (SAFe), so sprints, daily scrums, retrospectives and backlog refinement are known concepts to you.
