Description

About Us 

We are System C, a proud British business on a mission to connect and transform health and care outcomes for all through our market leading software.  

We care about what we do, and that goes for our team members too. We take our role in public digital transformation seriously. We’re in it for the long haul and pride ourselves on how we strive to be better, every day.   

Put simply, our mission is to deliver technology with the power to connect and transform health and care outcomes for all. 

The Role 

As a Solutions Architect, you will report to the Director of Solutions Architecture within Group Architecture.  

While your role entails a broad scope, you will focus primarily, but not exclusively, on System C’s social care solutions. Your responsibilities will include detailed analysis and design of System C’s applications, their data flows, hosting environments and integrations with other systems.  

You will establish and maintain solution documentation and formulate migration plans to deliver secure, resilient, and cost-effective implementations in Microsoft Azure.  

Collaborating with other Technical Leads and Solutions Architects, you will promote best practices and help accelerate the cloud vision for all products as part of the overarching technical and product strategy, focusing on System C’s social care solutions.  

We're thrilled to invite a talented Solutions Architect to join us. The role level would suit a Developer with a background in Microsoft technologies and Azure, looking to move into solution design. Or someone who has recently moved into a Solutions Architect role looking to continue their development.
