3+ months agoSingapore


Thought Machine, one of the UK's leading fintech companies, is undergoing a period of rapid expansion and is looking to hire a number of candidates in the role of Solution Architect - Client Facing. Thought Machine is solving one of the biggest problems in banking. Since launching in 2014, our mission has been to liberate banks from outdated, legacy technology which stifles their ability to innovate. Thought Machine's core product is a cloud native, core banking engine built to run any type of bank - from established Tier 1 banks all the way to new challenger banks. To move closer to achieving our mission, we are looking for highly talented individuals to join the fast growing team. With a founding team drawn from Google, we have a deep culture of engineering excellence and we believe it is this which delivers a solution compelling enough to engender a seismic shift in the banking industry. Thought Machine was recognised on LinkedIn's Top Startups List (2019) and named in Fintech 50 (2019). We pride ourselves on having an excellent internal culture, where we take cultural fit as important as technical fit when we make new hires. At Thought Machine, we strive hard to create a fast-paced, supportive and fun working environment to enable the team to produce the best technical work in the industry. Solution architecture in Thought Machine is a multi-disciplinary role. Focused on client delivery, solution architects are responsible for helping client financial institutions in articulating their target state architecture and working out how to get there. In addition to client work, solution architects are also involved in technical discovery and product enhancement, playing an important role in feeding into product development at Thought Machine. An ideal candidate will have strong client facing skills and will be required to interface with various stakeholders both at Thought Machine and client sites. Thought Machine prides itself in being an engineering-led company so the candidate should have a strong technical background. They should be able to reason about complex problems in distributed computing environments and be able to effectively communicate transitions from one architecture to another, both internally and to our client base. A successful solution architect should be able to champion the cloud-native Vault core banking product, both in pre- and post-sales settings. This requires a strong technical background, a firm grasp of architectural patterns and anti-patterns and a strong domain knowledge within the field of financial services, to ensure a coherent architectural story is being followed from pre-sales through to implementation through collaboration with multiple stakeholders.
