About the role

We help globally recognised brands deliver groundbreaking digital experiences to their customers. Our founding members come from leading media and TV companies, and even though TV is our first love - we are rapidly expanding into new areas. Our current domain portfolio consists of Cloud, Big-Data, Broadcast, Media and IoT.

As a Senior Architect you will work with our clients and development teams to deliver innovative software in an Agile environment. You will help shape the projects of our clients and the fabric of our company during this exciting and dynamic phase in our journey. We offer flexibility and freedom in return for passion and commitment.

We are an inclusive employer and are actively working to improve diversity in our organisation. We strongly encourage applications from under-represented groups, including women and ethnic minorities, and are happy to make special accommodations for disability and neurodiversity in our interview process.

You will

  • work closely with our clients and development teams to deliver innovative software and services
  • coach and motivate others in the team, listen and share knowledge
  • build strong relationships with stakeholders at all levels and become a trusted partner
  • guide the design of complex integrations and produce appropriate technical documentation
  • learn new technologies, design patterns and processes, introducing them where appropriate
  • enjoy flexibility and freedom in return for passion and commitment


About You

You will have:

  • substantial experience as a Software Architect and/or Developer
  • hands-on cloud experience, preferably AWS
  • familiarity with Continuous Delivery and Agile methodologies
  • a comprehensive understanding of security, scalability and resilience
  • the ability to identify and solve problems and work with minimal guidance and direction
  • an open mind and a natural curiosity for new technologies
  • excellent knowledge of English with first-rate verbal and written communication skills
  • experience in the Telco & Media industry is desirable but not essential
  • eligibility to work in the UK


This is a full-time position based in the UK. As we do not have a UK office, you are able to work from home as appropriate but should be prepared to commute to clients on a regular basis if required.

Most of our clients have adopted hybrid working practices and support flexible working, though the split between office and home working will vary. If you have any concerns or specific needs we will be happy to discuss flexible working arrangements further.
