External Posting Description

Digital technology has changed the face of business as we know it. Deloitte Digital helps clients in turning this transformation into an impactful advantage by creating and realizing digital transformation success stories. We combine Deloitte’s globally recognized strength in business transformation and technology implementation with the capabilities of a world-class digital agency.


By leveraging user-centric thinking, design capabilities, new technologies and cloud solutions, we empower our clients and allow them to rethink how they connect with their customers across every platform, every device and every step of the customer journey. Our approach is to start from the customer or the user needs, convert them into concepts, design tangible prototypes, and finally develop and implement concrete solutions, always keeping in mind the business impact they entail. Our consultants deliver disruptive innovations, relying on their business and technology knowledge, along with their creative capabilities.


As a Digital Solution Architect within the Deloitte Digital team, you will translate the business and technical requirements of our clients into a first-class design that addresses our client’s needs.  You will capture and document the architecture solution to facilitate project estimation, detailed design, and to build consensus with technology stakeholders and the delivery teams on how best to build enterprise grade applications.


You will be looked upon as subject matter expert on architectural patterns, and will be expected to understand a client’s systems and technology goals. The solutions you recommend will form the basis of project delivery plans. You will interact with delivery teams to understand deep rooted technical concerns that are relevant to creating a robust solution.


Our clients are all different; some need customized greenfield web applications for a high fidelity front-end, others need integrations into existing technology stacks or vendor packages that support their business.  As a Digital Solution Architect, you will provide the expertise on how to build applications from the ground up on latest and greatest tech, or how to augment existing assets to maximize value to our clients. 



  • Interact with Business & Technology stakeholders to understand requirements that influence design
  • Assess client’s current technology assets to design solutions that can augment and complement existing assets
  • Lead design of technical implementations and manage resources to help gather and document requirements and technical solutions
  • Work with business and delivery counterparts to elaborate and capture requirements
  • Make architectural recommendations and cost estimations that are foundational to the delivery of large and complicated projects
  • Work with business and delivery through-out the entire SDLC to refine requirements and design as needed for delivery
  • Participate in agile ceremonies to ensure architecture and solution design is transitioned seamlessly into delivery
  • Work with common collaboration tools such as Slack, JIRA, HipChat, or Confluence to support quick interaction with delivery teams to resolve open design questions
  • Propose high-level architecture solutions to support sales opportunities

Desired Experience

  • Bachelor or Master degree combined with post-graduate experience
  • Experience that crosses multiple tiers of a typical application architecture; you should have experience with client side, server side, and database design
  • A passion for digital transformation and technology
  • Experience integrating and architecting with vendor solutions (e.g. Salesforce, Oracle, Guidewire, SAP Hybris, or similar)
  • Experience in agile development environments
  • You are a team player who enjoys working with others to solve problems, share knowledge and can help growing and mentoring junior developers
  • You can work independently as well as in a highly collaborative team-setting
  • You balance logical problem solving with innovative thinking
  • You like building positive client and peer relationships by developing an understanding of customer's business and project scope and can translate business requirements into technical requirements
  • You can contribute positively to team culture, with a focus on inclusion and diversity
  • Identifying potential opportunities for additional revenue generation
  • Developing analytical and insightful recommendations to meet deliverable targets and complete project tasks within budget and to customer satisfaction
  • Identifying and communicating conflicts or issues to Project Manager or Team leader
  • Assisting in the development of client proposals
  • Strong written and verbal communication and presentation skills (English and/or French)
  • Flexible and open to travel up to 80% the time

  • Containerization – Docker, Kubernetes and a solid understanding of OS virtualization
  • Platforms – AWS, GCloud, Azure, Digital Ocean as infrastructure, and higher-level platform implementations such as Pivotal Cloud Foundry or OpenShift
