Who we are:

You'll be joining the 6th largest IT Service Provider, present in more than 50 countries. From our roots in Japan, NTT DATA's mission is to facilitate business change and technology transformation across many industries for a better future for our business, people and community. Some of the projects we have supported include the digitising of The Open golf tournament and applying Formula 1 technology to support medical staff at University Hospitals Leicester.

Everything we do is underpinned by our core values of 'Clients First', 'Teamwork' and 'Foresight' and we achieve these by putting people first.

We support and celebrate our differences and preferences, these are what makes us unique. Some of our initiatives, collectively known as “DO Diversity”, aim to create a space for us to learn and get involved in building a truly diverse environment. Our Culture & Ethnicity Network gives our colleagues a platform to share their various backgrounds; Our NINGEN programme allows the new generation of NTT DATA employees around the world to connect and shape the future of our organisation and the “City Gives Back” allows us to support our local community that has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic...and much more!

What you'll be doing:

We are looking for experienced, pragmatic, personable and talented Solution Architects and Application Architects for our Public Sector division. We need architects capable of driving the delivery of national scale digital, data and technology solutions, using cloud services and working in and across multi-functional agile teams.

You will ideally have experience of delivering public sector systems and services, gained from previous engagements at government departments such as the Home Office, Ministry of Justice, HMRC, DEFRA or similar. Your technical skills will be broad, covering aspects such as cloud services, application integration, data management and custom application development.

You will be an engineer and technologist at heart, but will be comfortable working in environments with multiple suppliers and interacting with a varied set of stakeholders.

This opportunity will provide a combination of complex engagements to work on, massive opportunity for growth and genuine professional support – all in an environment that prioritises teamwork and openness.

You may be part of individual agile teams or may take a lead role across teams.  Your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Providing technical leadership to team(s) in order to manage and deliver successful solutions
  • Designing and delivering complex cross-domain solutions encompassing a rich variety of technologies using agile methods
  • Shaping the technical and engineering approach for new projects and programmes
  • Being a trusted technical advisor to customers: solving complex technical challenges, establishing credibility & building deep relationships with senior technical individuals within customers’ organization
  • Proactively seeking out and learning new technologies and techniques relevant to your work and our customers’ business problems
  • Clearly communicating challenges, options and the chosen technical direction to teams, stakeholders and peers.

Guiding and supporting the engineering approaches adopted by agile teams to reduce risk and maximise delivery velocity.
