Position Description:

CGI is looking for a Data Architect for its expanding team in Burnaby, British Columbia to help our customers on their digital transformation journey.

This position is ideal for someone who is looking to take on a leadership role in delivering complex IT solutions to provincial and municipal governments, and commercial clients. The ideal person for this role has over 4 years of experience in data architecture working with stakeholders and technical teams to set data architecture principles, model data to enable the implementation of the intended business architecture, create documents and diagrams describing key data entities, build an inventory of the data needed to implement the solution, and map systems and interfaces used to manage data. The Data Architect will not only be able to understand and articulate customer data requirements in a form consumable by other members of the technical team but also help drive innovation by understanding clients' data governance and data management processes and provide meaningful recommendations on how these processes could be improved. A willingness to embrace and help drive change in our clients is an important asset.

The successful candidate must demonstrate a breadth of understanding established and emerging data technologies. Experience with tools such as columnar and NoSQL databases, predictive analytics, data visualization, very large datasets, and unstructured data is an asset.

The successful candidate must also be able to demonstrate their understanding of software development life cycles and the role of data architecture within them. They must also understand and work with requirements, design, and test techniques. The Data Architect will be called on to provide guidance to application development and integration projects and therefore must understand where, when and how to intervene effectively in the project lifecycle.

We help our customers with many different types of projects covering a variety of different business scenarios including business intelligence, document and records management, customer relationship management, asset management, and enterprise resource planning. As such the Data Architect needs to have the skills to apply data architecture principles to different situations and be able to build close relationships with both client staff and CGI members.

As Canada's largest independent IT services provider CGI can offer a career full of opportunity and variety to the right candidate.
