What you will do???
As the Head of Architecture you will work together with other technology leaders, deliver and communicate an architectural vision and roadmap for the tribe that is understood and supported by the whole business and that provides clear, achievable principles and direction for the technology team to follow.
You'll lead a team of architects, and be obsessed about helping them to help our teams deliver the right solution. You'll bring pragmatism to discussions, and strike the right balance between near term business value and setting us up for the long haul. You'll enjoy relationships with technologists and commercial stakeholders, and they will have confidence in your ability to facilitate us building the right solution well.
The Head of Architecture will be a technical subject matter expert for particular products and services and, via solution designs, be the design authority for new and existing services. Communicate the business goals, constraints and risks to the delivery team members, so that they can build and operate the systems and services that support and deliver the tribe's business goals and address the constraints and risks that are present.
You'll communicate the key facts, risks and assumptions to enable the heads of function in a tribe to understand and make decisions for the products and services you represent.
