Your job: Hands-on Solution Architect Amsterdam

As Hands-on Solution Architect Amsterdam you will lead a group of 5 to 10 highly skilled software engineers while helping to grow your team to around 20. You will work directly with the inspirational founders to grow the business in the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK and Scandinavia. Although most can be done from Amsterdam, so travelling is only incidental.

Together you will work as a Solution Architect on impactful software projects for some of the biggest and cash-rich Fintech clients in Europe on topics like cloud, moving away from legacy systems and implementing streaming data technology around Kafka. With your teams, you vastly expand your circle of influence at clients, while you help your teams to continuously challenge and grow themselves to do the same.

In the most challenging projects with a lot of moving parts, you will be the first one on-site to advise the client, propose a solution, set up dev teams to take end responsibility for delivery, varying from 6 months to about 1 year. This so you can bite down on the most challenging part, show how things are done, help your people grow and transfer knowledge. Then when the biggest challenge is completed you can move on to the next assignment, so you can always keep learning and challenging yourself!
