You’ll create the solution architecture by matching business requirements with perspectives of business process, data and IT functionality. Your end-result will create business value by balancing the functional requirements against other non-functional/quality requirements, making necessary priorities and compromises.


In your role as a Solution Architect you’ll provide architectural leadership for the team members developing and implementing the business supporting IT solution. You will be responsible for the definition, planning, documentation and implementation of a futureproof architecture within the scope of your assignment – Which in most cases will be an end-to-end B2B-flow supporting the customer journey, and in such, crossing both organizational- as well as technology boundaries.
You will also be working in close collaboration with other peer architect roles such as Enterprise-, Security-, Business- and Data Architects.


•    To design & blueprint the architecture for the IT solution at hand, ensuring alignment with the target architecture and security directives. This includes designing the desired IT solution integration landscape as well as proposing alternative solution options and buy/build recommendations.

•    To govern and guide the IT solution realization team with architecture directions and insights, ensuring that expected IT solution architecture targets are met.
•    To present the IT solution/MVP’s for the architecture review board.
•    To influence and share architectural best practice across Ericsson and Ericsson Group IT.

•    You know how to build and implement mission-critical web and mobile technology full-stack IT solutions (cloud native, containers/container orchestration, public cloud PaaS services, security built-in, API first design, full CI/CD etc.) Preferably you have a solid developer background having worked with multiple technologies and programming languages. Hence, you understand the technical challenges that software engineers are facing today.
