The role

We are looking for someone who is truly passionate and inquisitive about innovation – who not just thinks about technology, but also the customer and business benefits of new propositions.

We currently have an opportunity for an Innovation Solutions Architect to join a trans-Tasman Innovation & Partnerships team who design and deliver horizon 2+ innovations for the NAB Group (NAB, BNZ, UBank).

This role would suit someone in their early career. Someone with proven architecture experience but who is equally hungry to design, learn and collaborate with a broad range of likeminded people to push the boundaries.

NB: This position can be based in either Melbourne or Sydney.

Your opportunity

  • Owning the development of solution designs that are fit for small scale incubation, taking into account considerations and trade-offs required for successful scaling
  • Providing options, considerations and recommendations and communicating why a solution has been selected, with benefits outlined and details of how it will be implemented
  • Interfacing with group technology and other functions to understand and align on technology strategy, standards and processes
  • Providing technical oversight for the development and running of product incubations
  • Supporting the design and enhancement of the innovation technology platform(s) to enable reusability across propositions

What you will bring

  • 2 to 5 years’ experience in Solution Architect and Delivery experience within the technology industry, including experience on complex projects
  • Experience across the software development life cycle, multiple development methodologies, on more than one platform and across more than one business domain
  • Ability to work at a very high level to conceptualise ideas as well as maintain architectural oversight during the concrete implementation.
  • Knowledge of modern architecture, design and development patterns and toolsets, including cyber security strategies and threats
  • Experience designing and implementing cloud solutions, and associated dev ops tooling and security controls
  • Experience with both packaged and custom build software
  • The ability to establish good working relationships across diverse internal and external stakeholders

Applications will close Saturday 15th October 2022
