At the headquarters of the Bijenkorf, our E-commerce department is our youngest and fastest growing department. A passionate, multinational group of over 100 professionals work together on the continuous growth and improvement of our digital platform. Because of the positive growth and challenging developments we are looking for new colleagues to join the team. We work in an Agile environment where our key stakeholders are our customers.
As a Software Architect you set the high level technical vision and translate that into implementable strategy, designs and roadmaps keeping team topologies in mind. In the initiation, discovery and delivery phase you work closely together with the other architects, engineers and business stakeholders to make sure we provide the best customer experience while keeping the target state in mind. To successfully deliver features you bring together and coordinate multiple teams and third parties.
You define implementable roadmaps with an MVP mindset while also striving for a balance between pragmatism and long term objectives. You weigh the pros and cons of different technical approaches and can translate those into a presentable format facilitating the decision making process.
In addition you are responsible for the oversight of our technical landscape and take the initiative to ensure quality and identify areas for improvement. You coach, mentor and challenge the teams on architectural principals and concepts.
