Day in the life of a BJSS Enterprise Architect:
For an Enterprise Architect (EA) at BJSS, there isn’t really a regular ‘day in the life’. As one of the most in demand roles at BJSS, the span and scope of what EA’s do is both broad in challenge and varied in domain. Practically speaking, it can range from providing a capability review of a client’s existing technology platform to helping another client form a technology strategy from first principles.
Client projects can last from a few weeks to a few months and often involve working in a small team of BJSS consultants from across business consulting and technical delivery domains. This often means being comfortable with engaging widely across a client’s business and technology organisations, spanning CxO stakeholders, end users, and technical teams.
The type of person that thrives as an EA at BJSS is multifaceted, comfortable with ambiguity, and self-starting. This means possessing not only a broad range and depth of technology skills, but also multiple industry and domain experience. It requires an individual with high levels of emotional intelligence able to use their experience to understand our clients’ goals and objectives, can clearly frame and communicate the challenges they are facing, and know how to help them overcome these to gain the best value possible from technology investments.
