Variety and the need for agility invigorates life here at Cambridge Consultants. New days bring fresh challenges as we collaborate to solve pressing global problems and help shape the future of smart homes, connected therapeutic devices, wireless robot networks and much more.

If you relish autonomy but value the support of passionate, like-minded colleagues, our Software Architect role will suit you well. You’ll be surrounded by acknowledged leaders in the very latest technologies as you help evolve our software development and architectural design for distributed cloud-based systems.

What we can offer

As a software architect, you will take a leading role in helping grow and develop our team to meet the needs of our clients. You will work on a broad variety of projects, defining architectures and deploying software to run server-side on the internet. For some projects, the cloud software will be the entire project; for others, it will be one component of a broader ecosystem involving software and hardware developed at Cambridge Consultants or by our clients. We are looking for versatile people who can adapt to challenges as they come in.

You’ll share your days with talented teams of software engineers, front-end developers, UX and service designers, mathematicians, test engineers and DevOps specialists. Your focus will be effective, creative delivery for ambitious, world-renowned clients wanting to make a real difference to real lives. Often you’ll be architecting for systems that haven’t been seen before and where the specification can at first be unclear. You’ll need to know how to design for performance, for critical and niche workloads and to be confident working on cloud platforms. Using these skills you’ll be able to clear the fog by working iteratively with the client and our service designers to solve these hard problems.

We have a team ‘share-what-you-learn’ ethic so we can plan, grow and succeed together. You’ll take a lead role in helping to grow our team and our capability. We provide the opportunity to work on a variety of projects across a multitude of industries. As well as a mentoring and training package shaped by your goals, and a free-hand in choosing the right tools and processes for your project.

There is no single technology stack, as we will use whatever tool best fits each project, but you can expect to encounter AWS, Azure and Google Cloud; Go, Java, C#, Python; ElasticSearch, Terraform, and Gitlab CI.

What you can do for us

  • Deliver top-notch digital services that help our clients achieve their goals
  • Keep learning, and be vocal about the latest trends in software development and how they might be used to solve real-world problems for our clients
  • Bring commercial awareness and an ability to understand our clients’ needs and the world in which they operate, working with our commercial team to build new relationships and identify new opportunities
  • Be a trusted partner for our clients - your team will become their development arm and you will help shape and guide their ambitions
