You will also ensure that designed solutions are kept up to date and that have been approved which comply with business processes and design standards. The current platform is still in the early stages and built in AWS, but there are plans to bring in Azure technology soon.

Role Responsibilities:
- Take ownership of the design of the data platform, working independently to deliver assigned work while supporting the line manager.
- Collaborate with the wider development team, using Agile/Scrum methodologies to deliver solutions and services for stakeholders.
- Ensuring relevant documentation for the organisations strategic Cloud platform is regularly kept up to date.
- Evaluate emerging technologies, understanding how they would integrate into the bank and the data platform.
- Align to Information Security, Data Protection, Data Governance and Data Architecture principles. Work with these teams to build, monitor and maintain fit for purpose infrastructure, access, processes and documentation for our platform architecture, databases, and data assets.

Skills Required:

- Stakeholder management skills
- Strong collaboration skills, with the ability to work with multiple teams in the business

- Development of the platform understands the principles of IAAS and infrastructure as code and supports adoption of CI/CD methodologies, designers need awareness of these practices, data principles and DevOps practices.

In return you will receive a competitive salary and great benefits package. They also offer flexible remote working with 1 or 2 days in the office once restrictions are lifted.
