Solutions Design and Enterprise Architects
This is a good example of how one area of work can have a big impact on our business. Solution Design and Enterprise Architects genuinely have a significant impact on the effectiveness of the technology architecture at New Zealand Post.
Solutions Design Architects work with business capability owners and experts to develop end-to-end solutions that meet or exceed their needs, collaborating with delivery and operational partners within IT to ensure quality outcomes.
Enterprise Architects develop and socialise future state and road maps that are fit-for-purpose and maximise return on investment with holistic consideration for business, data, application and technology concerns.
This is about constantly striving to reach our architecture standards, and consulting with stakeholders throughout the business to bring architectural expertise to bear on projects, problems and opportunities.
These roles require:
- Proven experience in Solution/Enterprise Architecture with hands-on experience of enterprise-grade COTS platforms including Cloud/PaaS offerings, systems integration and lifecycle management.
- Outstanding stakeholder management with the ability to gain influence, create alignment with IT/Business and establish yourself as a trusted advisor.
- Excellent communication, able to explain technology options in terms of business benefits/opportunities/risks.
