About the role 

Youi is a forward-thinking, tech-driven insurance company embarking on an exciting journey of technological modernisation and cloud migration. We are committed to creating state-of-the-art technology products and services that empower our customers and employees in the modern digital world. 

As a Solutions Architect, you will play a pivotal role in designing solutions that support our business and customers. Your responsibilities will include creating architectures to guide engineering squads, ensuring functionality and effective cloud operation. You will transcribe business needs into actionable designs for software engineering teams, documenting current state architectures, and crafting transition and future state architectures.

This role offers the chance to work with the latest technologies, engage in our systems modernisation and cloud migration efforts, and solve diverse challenges with a passionate team. 

Join us at Youi to drive innovation and make a significant impact on our technology landscape. 

Key priorities:  

  • Iteratively develop and describe solutions, conducting workshops to gather stakeholder information and using tools to model designs. 
  • Standardise architecture patterns, maintain IT component inventory, and promote architectural practices through showcases and knowledge sharing. 
  • Develop architectural designs for business and IT solutions, optimising cloud-based workloads, and documenting repeatable patterns to ensure compliance and security. 
  • Assist in prototypes and proofs of concept while collaborating with Engineering, Platform Engineering, QA, Security, IT Operations, and Analytics teams. 
  • Collaborate with stakeholders and cross-functional teams, supporting application implementation and architecture efforts. 
  • Engage in continuous learning, staying updated on industry trends, and participating in governance forums to support decision-making.
