Solution Architect - MACH

Valtech being one of the founders of the global MACH Alliance, we have since the launch of this alliance experienced an overwhelming interest and demand for these services from clients. To accommodate this increasing demand, we are looking for getting even more talents onboard to join us on this existing journey.

We are therefore delighted to be able to give you the chance to be part of a team of exceptionally talented, creative and innovative professionals working with cutting-edge MACH technologies within the large-scale digital experience and ecommerce business area.

This role is to some extend location agnostic, but we’re especially looking to place these roles in our offices in Germany, France, Netherlands, UK, Denmark, Switzerland, USA and Canada.

What will you be doing?

As a MACH Architect (Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless) you will play a hands-on role in supporting the organization in delivering solutions that clearly position Valtech as a market leader. You are a senior member of our MACH team and you’ll be getting stuck-in to some of our most critical MACH client-engagements, locally as well as globally.

You use your broad experience and hands-on understanding of the MACH concepts to operate at development lead and architect level. With your well-developed business sense, you understand what success looks like for our clients. That means you can translate your technical knowledge into business solutions with positive impact on our client's business

You support our local and regional teams in selling and delivering solutions that exceed client expectations. You guide and steer the teams and, if necessary, engage with clients to direct the program. A significant part of your time will be client faced and billable to clients.

You help to solidify Valtech as a thought leader through numerous opportunities preferably by being speaker at conferences, blogging/writing articles and be an active player in the wider community, both internally as well as externally. Of course, there are colleagues to help you out on this!

You initiate and lead innovation and knowledge building activities within Valtech and in client engagements too and you play an active role in our Valtech Global Craft Circle (our global community of practice).

  • Experience on leading and growing development teams and services

  • Knowledge of the key players and trends in the digital industry such as CMS, CX and e-commerce solution providers in this space, most importantly: CommerceTools, Contentful, ContentStack, Fluent and Amplience
  • Strong cloud knowledge Azure, AWS, GCP
  • Hands-on practical experience in the MACH space. You are considered by our technical staff as first-amongst-equals
  • You’re certified and ideally, you’re recognized as a thought leader within the MACH area
