JOB TITLE: Principal Solution Architect - Telematics
SALARY: Competitive
POSTING END DATE: 31/08/2022
LOCATION: Manchester
Jaguar Land Rover is harnessing technology to make driving smarter, safer and cleaner. You can help create a world in which responsible, sustainable vehicles revolutionise the driving experience for generations. Our vision is to leverage the incredible potential of technology to build vehicles that not only offer a premium, all-encompassing digital experience, but that also make our customers lives better.




We are looking for someone to help us realise our business vision of a cloud-native “vehicle connected and data platform” that will provide our customers, suppliers and partners with seamless connected services delivered through an industry-leading global platform.


We are looking for someone who will work closely with stakeholders to define and evolve a system architecture that meets both functional and operational needs and, importantly, provides direction and support to our agile delivery teams. You will be a valued member of our Global Digital Development Centre team, contributing to the strategic direction of the technology and solutions delivered.


As a Solution Architect you will own the end-to-end solution architecture for the customer’s digital experience from the mobile app down to the vehicle. You will be responsible for defining and communicating the structure and dynamics of a solution sufficient to meet the requirements of the various key stakeholders. You will be responsible for identifying and highlighting architectural risk and providing recommendations for mitigation. You will be responsible for enabling the agile delivery teams to work effectively through a clear understanding of the separation of concerns and system dependencies. Working in close collaboration with the engineering teams through the tech leads, you will evolve the architecture as detail is laid down and through architectural prototyping as necessary.




You will need to have a good level of experience in the role of solution architect accountable for delivering, describing, and governing end-to-end systems architecture.  You will have solid experience of the solution architecture discipline, ideally as part of a recognised agile SDLC and experience of developing architecture using a recognised framework, e.g. TOGAF.


Knowledge, skills and experience


Successful candidates will have some or all of the following:


  • Telematics
  • Experience of architecting within agile delivery methods, e.g. scaled agile or scrum
  • Data intensive applications
  • Cloud-native architectures
  • Message-driven architectures
  • Real-time data and stream processing
  • Micro services architectures
  • IOT architectures
  • Relational, non-relational databases (NoSQL), time-series databases, data lakes and analytics




Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

Please be aware that we may close this vacancy for applications before the stated deadline if we receive a high volume of interest. We strongly advise you to submit your application as early as possible.
