Software Architect | Technical Software

The function

Do you get energy from developing software? Do you keep an eye open for technical possibilities, and do you like to ensure quality within a project? Then this role suits you.

As a Software Architect at ALTEN, your focus is on three components, namely: Technology, Business and People. You are in charge of a team and you focus on all facets of software development. You are responsible for the software architecture, create and maintain the technical roadmap, initiate improvements and coach designers and software engineers in your team. In addition, you have regular contact with stakeholders to coordinate requirements and solutions. There are different solutions for every problem, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. It is up to you to give sound advice and to draw up a plan.

You still find it challenging to develop software yourself, but you also oversee the entire development process, from requirement engineering to testing. You have broad experience with multiple methods and techniques, such as UML, Design patterns, architectural patterns, high performance computing, requirement engineering and test engineering.In addition, you have demonstrable experience in managing stakeholders and you are able to make a trade-off on both a technical and project management level.In addition to your excellent helicopter view, you can also go into depth when necessary.

You dare to make your choices based on experience and insight, while listening carefully to the contribution of various stakeholders. You have a 'can-do' mentality in which you have a realistic view of the technical possibilities for a project and you are able to bring parties together. Because you can always argue why you make a certain choice, you are in a strong position as a Software Architect.
