The current business model is for the platform to be used by 100s of customers in the London insurance markets – the next step for the business is to take their product international and this role is critical to enable that to happen. Today, the platform spans iOS devices, browsers and server-side APIs. It has been developed primarily in Swift and Angular, with other languages when necessary. All data is stored in the Couchbase NoSQL database. Moving this platform international will bring its own set of challenges which the Architect will have to overcome during design.

Essential Experience:

  • Proven track record in providing a top-level design for a business-critical software development
  • Technical background and expertise within software development
  • Experience in international markets and customers
  • Ability to collaborate with a team of people designing, developing, and testing their systems
