REQ ID: 57586
JOB TITLE: Lead Systems Architect
SALARY: Competitive
LOCATION: Shannon, Ireland

Dreaming for tomorrow is about more than ideas and ambitions. We’re already building the next generation of vehicles, using repurposed and brand-new technology and techniques. We’re doing more than dream, we’re creating the future of mobility and automotive for years to come.



As a Lead Systems Architect, you will be responsible for the coordination of architecture, interfaces and requirements activities and the resolution of technical delivery issues.

Day to day, you’ll be supporting the software development of the solution architecture for a system or a group of products. You’ll be working with the architects, product owners and technical leads from other teams, to ensure interfaces are well defined, dependencies are clear, and architectural or development issues are resolved. You’ll be active in the management and mitigation of technical risks, ensuring that the requirements can be realistically delivered by the underlying technology components.


Key responsibilities will include:

  • Supporting product roadmap creation and strategy development
  • Being accountable for the technical excellence of technology solutions delivered across the enterprise
  • Support and guidance of the solution delivery teams to develop solutions in line with architectural development documentation
  • Overseeing and supporting the assessment of solution excellence to core KPI’s as well as independently rating and assessing solutions
  • Maximising value from solutions through technical sustainability, longevity, and reusability
  • Supporting stakeholders across the business with the setup of delivery teams.
  • Leading multiple design activities and projects



As the Lead Systems Architect, you will have experience taking ideas and concepts through to delivery -- from pushing the art of what’s possible, creating system requirement analysis, into well-structured designs, and working closely with the development teams on the solution, right through to delivery. You will have the ability to communicate technical design concepts to business and technical stakeholders.


  • Extensive systems software development and architecture experience
  • Experience with modelling tools and techniques for systems of software design
  • Experience in working on embedded system platforms
  • Knowledge across several programming languages, including C/C++

  • Knowledge of networking systems, web standards and cloud architectures
