Big Data Architect|
This is an exciting opportunity for a Big Data Architect to significantly influence the design and implementation of a global analytics platform for the leading organisation in its sector. The Big Data Architect will join a small elite team of highly experienced architects and technologists to design and develop the Big Data and Analytics Platform using a hypothesis-driven iterative methodology. The project will be business-outcome driven, and the team will be highly empowered to deliver to challenging timescales. This opportunity will suit an experienced Big Data Architect who enjoys being hands-on with analytics and big data technologies.
The Big Data Architect will be an expert in big data technologies, and will be responsible for the design and implementation of the analytics platform to a challenging schedule. The project is of enormous strategic importance to the organisation. The Big Data Architect will need to have the gravitas and authority to collaborate with stakeholders at all levels of the organisation. They will need to be able to identify and articulate opportunities, and to rapidly pivot to new paradigms as the solution matures, and new requirements, opportunities, and challenges emerge.
