At the client
Solution Architect

What can you expect?

  • Based on high-level business needs and his/her technical understanding, our Solution Architect compares multiple potential solutions that meet both functional and non-functional needs. Subsequently, he/she will recommend one.
  • While Solution Architects often work on IT solutions, such as buying a software package, building in-house applications or reusing existing ones, it is even more important to also consider the impact on the organisation and business processes. For instance, the best solution may not include an IT change at all. During this process, (s)he will work together with the Enterprise Architects, other Solution Architects, Development Teams, etc.
  • Once a solution is agreed upon, the Solution Architect will need to sell it to a variety of stakeholders, ranging from high management till developers.
  • During implementation, the Solution Architect supports the different business & IT teams working on it. (S)he also ensures that the solution is implemented in a coherent way across these teams.

What do Solution Architects do at Tobania?

  • You have a high level overview of the most important systems and technologies of the organisation;
  • You stay up-to-date with the market trends and innovation;
  • You are capable of translating high-level business needs into working solutions (potentially impacting business processes, the organisation and/or any number of new or existing IT systems scattered over multiple teams);
  • You lead discussions about the architecture of new systems (considering the organisation’s strategy, non-functional requirements, technology, type of architecture and required skills);
  • You guide multiple development teams to deliver a consistent end result;
  • You communicate the proposed solution to different stakeholders (IT management, business stakeholders and developers).

Who are we looking for?

What profile are we looking for?

  • Technical Literacy – Solution Architects possess a high level of technical literacy, which helps them determine how a software solution fits into an organisation’s current structure and assists in the development of specifications and requirement;
  • Analytical Assessment – This role requires a high level of analysis since Solution Architects need to examine a client’s current system and determine overall project needs and scope;
  • Time Management – Solution Architects need extensive time management skills to determine development schedules and milestones and ensure that deliverables are completed on time;
  • Team Leadership – As Solution Architects oversee and lead development teams throughout the project development life cycle, having experience in team leadership and motivation becomes essential;

  • Problem-Solving – Solution Architects must excel as problem solvers, capable of quickly changing direction based on updated customer specifications or system constraints.
  • Languages – Dutch or French is the native language, but Solution Architects can also express themselves fluently in the other national language.

What do we have to offer?

  • An indefinite contract
  • A competitive salary with plenty of fringe benefits such as a company car, 12 extra vacation days, lunch cheques and group and hospitalization insurance.

  • A chance to develop your talents in our Tobania.Academy and on-the-job coaching.
