About The Role

Morrisons technology team is an exciting place to be, we’re changing and optimising the way we deliver technology. As a solution architect within our manufacturing team you’ll be creating solutions that are better for our customers, simpler for our colleagues and improve performance for the manufacturing business as a whole.

Manufacturing for us covers a broad range of businesses with a wide range of systems and technologies, including a number of different ERP systems.  We’re moving towards a service oriented approach to delivering new and enhanced capabilities and so experience of both traditional and service based architectures, and the complexities of the associated integration will be beneficial for you to have experienced already.

As Solutions Architect you’ll be accountable for things like this;

  • Interpreting high level business need and defining a strategic solution that fits with the wider technology vision

  • Developing simple, flexible, secure and cost-effective solutions

  • Leading architecture projects within manufacturing that support our transition from traditional software delivery to a more service oriented approach

  • Supporting the realisation of that solution design through to completion

  • Leading internal and external resource to deliver your solutions, including offshore

About You

You’ll need skills and experience like this;

  • Experience of working within a mixed landscape of traditional ERP type solutions and the modern services approach, ideally you’ll have worked to support the transition from one to another

  • Experience of designing and delivering solutions that meet your customer requirements yet fit with a wider business vision

  • Ability to come up with innovative ways to face business challenges

  • A background in software development, ideally you will have experienced developing software so you can support the technical development teams in the solution delivery

  • Experience of working with both internal and external resources on projects and preferably including elements of offshore delivery

  • Strong influencing skills and ability to build strong relationships at all levels

  • You’ll need to be an independent worker that can proactively drive your own agenda in a complex organisation

  • Up to date knowledge of current technology and architecture patterns
