Kategorie: Architektur
Hauptstandort: Germany, Darmstadt
Alternative Standorte: Beliebiger CGI-Standort
Stellen-ID: J0222-0596
Anstellungsart: Vollzeit


This is a great opportunity to join our small team of Architects delivering solutions and technical architecture for one of our clients, a major European satellite operator. We are seeking an IT Architect with expertise/experience in Storage, Backup and Database solutions.

This is a position for a mid-level role (junior-level applications will also be considered if relevant experience is demonstrated).

Our IT Solution Architects work as trusted advisors to our Space sector clients, often embedded in their teams in a consulting capacity, to help them design and deliver IT infrastructure solutions that will meet their business requirements and priorities. You will work on high-level roadmaps and IT Strategy as well IT solution design; you will also be expected to engage with CGI teams, client stakeholders and external vendors to implement projects that deliver these solutions.

You can expect to have hybrid responsibilities – both that of Technical Architecture and Project Management. Our Architects take a lead in defining delivery approaches for their solutions and in managing in-house and out-sourced suppliers through to implementation. This brings enormous satisfaction - to see your solutions brought to life from concept or feasibility to operations.

What we find important is that you are enthusiastic about our client’s business (whether that is satellite operations, downstream applications, cyber security or another Space sector domain) and can bring your experience as an IT Architect to help our clients while also growing our business.


In your role as an IT Architect, you will…:

• Work closely with your client stakeholders to maintain an overview of their IT landscape. You will understand the big picture and be able to use this knowledge to design new architectures.
• Analyse the business requirements & constrains originating from the customer and IT operations.
• Develop and maintain architecture strategies and technical roadmaps.
• Define solution designs.
• Define and manage projects that implement solutions by engaging with supplier teams, business stakeholders and external vendors.
• Prepare project briefs.
• Develop implementation and roll-out strategies, while managing the balance between delivery and risk.
• Review and approve technical documents produced by engineers and supplier teams.
• Expand your network with partners and 3rd Party providers and use this network to stimulate decision-making and problem solving.
• Follow new technology products and trends in order to incorporate them into potential solutions.


You will have Technical Architect or Solution Architect experience in (or experience in delivering IT projects relating to) any or multiple of the following technology areas:

• Enterprise Storage and Backup architectures
• Software Defined Storage (Red Hat Ceph)
• Public Cloud Storage (e.g. AWS S3, EFS, EBS)
• Storage integration with containers (K8s, Rook, VMware CSE)
• SQL and NoSQL database technologies and DBaaS solutions: MySQL, MariaDB
• Platforms for Big Data Analytics (Hadoop, Spark)

Domain knowledge in Space systems or satellite operations will help in understanding our client, but is not essential.

Knowledge of modern NoSQL solution like InfluxDB, TimescaleDB, MongoDB is not required but it would be an asset.

It is also desirable that you are familiar with ITIL Service Management Processes and Project Management techniques – however these can be learned on the job and training will be provided. As there is a significant aspect of stakeholder engagement, we expect excellent communication skills in written and verbal English. You should also be comfortable in a client-facing role with daily client and service provider interaction.
