Infrastructure Architect (Remote work possible)

Who we are

At XPLUS, we have over 100 consultants in a tight-knit community of architects and program managers. Our consultants work at the biggest clients on core programs. We value knowledge-sharing and collaboration very highly, so each consultant continues to develop. And when we're done working and learning, there's still room for some fun on the occasional get-together.

About the role

As Infrastructure Architect you play a critical role in figuring out how all the IT infrastructure components get connected and work together. These components include hardware, system software, application platforms, technical services, … You make sure that the introduction of new technology and phasing out older technology occurs with minimal risk to the organization. 

Your responsibilities will be to:

  • Translate a (complex) business or IT problem into solution building blocks on the technology layer.
  • Assist other project stakeholders in capturing system requirements.
  • Clearly understand and document the boundaries (scope) of the system and the architecturally significant concerns (driving requirements).
  • Define and document the architecture by describing the architectural decisions and architectural views that have been developed to address the concerns of the stakeholders.

Who you are

You have minimum 7 years of experience in Infrastructure Architecture or a proven track record of at least 10 years in IT within a large organization:

  • You play with modelling techniques using industry standard notations (ArchiMate, UML...) and tools (Sparx EA).
  • You have a degree from an accredited college or university, or equivalent experience.
  • You are bitten by technology, and passionate to keep up-to-date with evolving technologies.
  • If you like to make other people grow in your team or our community, then we get even more excited about you.

Curious how you can become an XPLUSser?
