Employment Type: Full Time

Position Description:

We are looking for Cloud Architects to join us working on a prestigious new long term programme here at CGI. You'll join our Central Government business unit whose architecture teams are bursting with talent and are trusted to help deliver transformative digital work for high profile clients. From cutting-edge projects to essential programmes, our work has a wide reach. When you start your CGI story, not only will you be improving people’s lives, you can be sure we’ll do the same for you.
CGI was voted ‘Best Workplace' by Great Place To WorkTM in 2021, and offer a competitive salary, excellent pension, private healthcare, plus a share scheme (3% + 3% matching) which makes you a member not just an employee.

All applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo National Security Vetting (NSV) Security Check (SC) level.

Your future duties and responsibilities:

Our cloud architects are responsible for ensuring that our projects and programmes make effective and appropriate use of public cloud technologies. They also support our client’s in developing their cloud computing strategies.
Our cloud architects are involved in both cloud migration and new cloud native solutions. They are an essential member of the architecture team. They are the experts in the cloud platform, working with the solution, technical and security architects to ensure that an engagement maximises the benefits of the cloud service – providing a secure, and fully monitored solution with the right systemic qualities (availability, resilience, and integrity) and security posture. They work closely both with the delivery and service teams with a focus on DevSecOps.
With such a wide range of technologies and capabilities available within public clouds, the cloud architect cannot be the subject matter expert in each service and technology. However, each has expert knowledge of the fundamentals (networking, IaaS services, Identity and Access Management) as well as knowledge and appreciation of wide range of cloud native technologies, including containerisation and microservices, messaging and event-based solutions.
We are looking for established and experienced cloud architects and engineers, as well as those who have made the transition into cloud architecture more recently.
Our architects have a strong technology background and can address all aspects of the solution (conceptual, logical, and physical) - working with stakeholders to understand requirements and objectives as well as working closely with delivery and service teams to ensure the integrity of the solution and adapting to changing circumstances in an agile manner.
As an Architect within CGI, you will be part of an extensive community of practitioners, sharing knowledge and insight with each other and applying the principles behind our risk and cost driven architecture approach that ensures our clients achieve their goals through successful engagements.
A CGI career will offer you a complete tech experience, where you have control over your future.
You’ll also discover:
● A unique level of variety across different clients and industry sectors
● Interesting and challenging projects to stretch your skills
● Training and support specifically tailored to give you the right skills for your career/role – including accreditation
● Impactful work that makes a real difference in our communities
● A supportive tech community across CGI, with regular meet-ups, discussions, and shared best practice

Required qualifications to be successful in this role:

● Relevant experience as a cloud architect in at least one of the following technologies: Azure, AWS or Google Cloud and expert knowledge of the cloud platform
● Infrastructure as Code and DevSecOps experience.
● Experience in working with Stakeholders and others to shape and communicate the overall solution.
● Experience of a wide range of IaaS and PaaS solutions
● Experience of working with other SMES (solution architects, security architects, delivery, and service management teams) to ensure that an appropriate security posture for the solution is established and maintained.
● Experience of a containerisation.

Our working approach is built around our client’s needs and the needs of you, our members. In a post-pandemic world, we want to extend the offer of an open discussion to you as to whether a role can be office or remote based, flexible or hybrid and full-time, part-time or job share. Unconditionally inclusive. We know diversity brings a greater variety of ideas, perspectives and experiences to the workplace. We actively encourage diversity at CGI and inclusivity is one of our top priorities. #LI-Remote
