Job Description

Solution Architect – Project Delivery Group

Our team and what we do:

Our products and services touch many aspects of everyday mobility and Intelligent Traffic Systems, including the future of Clean Air Zones, Congestion Charging, city wide traffic management systems and Electric Vehicle charging.  If you drove or took public transport today, you almost certainly interacted with what we do every day to keep our roads running safely and efficiently.

The Project Delivery team is responsible for the design and deployment of innovative mobility solutions in the United Kingdom and Worldwide, able to work independently or as part of larger teams.  The systems deployed typically utilise core sub-systems and products from the Traffic Solutions product portfolio with configuration and project specific developments including network Infrastructure.

Typically, a project involves integration of on-street equipment including detectors, cameras, traffic controls, pollution sensors, and variable message signs, to drive strategic traffic network decisions within our cloud-hosted products and services.  We continue to evolve our market leading traffic system (Stratos) and develop next generation products into a secure and resilient environment. 

Siemens are actively involved in new technology areas including 5G internet of things (IoT), network optimisation and autonomous connected vehicles.

The Solution Architect will be responsible for developing and overseeing the delivery of complex, bespoke and secure cloud-based solutions to fulfil customer requirements for operation, maintenance and reliability of service, from city-wide to regional to national networks. Our systems are changing the way people view transport systems and allows us to provide our clients with individualised, scalable solutions.

Core to Siemens values are innovation and the delivery of technology which improves our daily lives. Our team provide the human face of the technology which by developing software and infrastructure solutions for significant projects, supports the smooth and efficient movement of people around towns and cities.

As the successful candidate, you will be a motivated, autonomous innovator who has a passion for delivering change and improving the status quo, developing infrastructure design and implementation for the migration of city-wide traffic systems.

You will work in partnership with other suppliers across multiple technology markets to implement future technologies including electric vehicle infrastructure and connected vehicle products.

Is Siemens the place to enjoy your next success?

  • You can create solutions for complex and unfamiliar systems that have a significant business impact. You can realise a technical vision as well as establish requirements from appropriate regulations, customer requests, or technology strategies.
  • Collaboration is central to your approach in aligning stakeholder needs including software development, Dev Ops, Support, and Project Managers. 
  • You see technical setbacks as a challenge to overcome and use them to improve your own knowledge, experience and the customer’s project. 
  • You can make informed decisions on customer solutions and take responsibility for project outcomes.
  • Be able to identify and implement process and product change resulting in safety, cost, or customer improvements.
  • You can demonstrate experience of successfully delivering projects within time, quality and budget constraints.
  • You are an effective communicator able to describe technical solutions to all stakeholders to achieve the desired result, with strong oral and written communication skills.
  • Ability to foresee, identify and understand problems, using a logical and structured methodology to create solutions.
  • Knowledge of IP communications network configuration and Linux/Windows environment configuration.

In your role, what can you expect?

You will work closely with Project Management and other Architects within Development and Consultancy on major tenders and projects.  This typically involves novel solutions for resilient cloud deployed infrastructure and system to system interfacing.

Candidates should hold a BSc/BEng in a related STEM discipline or be able to demonstrate experience in a similar professional role.  It is desirable that candidates are working towards additional domain knowledge accreditations such as CCNA or cloud-based solutions such as Amazon Web Services.

The successful candidate will be provided with appropriate product specific training and Siemens will look to support continued learning and accreditation.
