DWP Digital is looking for a Senior Solution Architect - Identity and Trust Programme, someone to make decisions and challenge the norm.

DWP. Digital with Purpose.

We're looking for an experienced Senior Solution Architect to join a small team of solution architects who are working with DWP's Identity & Trust (ID&T) programme.

The ID&T programme is tasked with the strategic design and implementation of DWP's Identity Access Management (IAM) solution for citizen, third party and organisational identity. We're also extending to incorporate capabilities such as, identity proofing, transactional risking and behavioural analytics.

We're making it easier for our users to self-serve, and to access the support they need. To do that, and to prevent fraud and error, we need to build trust that a user of DWP services is genuine, and the information surrounding that user is accurate. Implementing appropriate and proportionate Identity controls and solutions is a core foundation of DWP's once-in-a-generation digital transformation.

Duties. Work. Projects.

We're working to deliver a Dynamic Trust Hub - a combination of re-usable and shareable capabilities from various sources/suppliers, providing consistent and simplified journeys for claimants and staff and will layer complexity away from consuming services and give them a single integration point for Identity and Trust.

Maintaining and enhancing strategy and approach for CI/CD for the team, you will be creating solution designs that meet user needs, working closely with engineers, in agile delivery teams. You will be providing architecture advice to our delivery squads, blending your technical and leadership and communication skills.

You'll also be visible and vocal advocate for architecture and design, representing solutions throughout product development and helping us build capability in our community, in DWP and across government.

This is a business critical role for us. It will be great fit if you are someone who can work with other architects within both a programme and across a wider department, to ensure solutions are consistent, strategically matched and interoperable.

You should have experience of developing solutions for deployment into public cloud (AWS preferred) environments and have knowledge and experience of Identity Access Management (IAM) and related technical standards like SAML, OAuth, OIDC etc.

A working understanding of modern data security, data privacy and GDPR would also be a distinct advantage.

We are looking for someone who can demonstrate they have skills and experience in:

  • Architecture design and modelling techniques, patterns, tools and standards
  • Event-based architecture design, patterns (including pub-sub and data streaming), modelling techniques, tools and standards
  • Public cloud technologies, cloud hosting, container, and networking design patterns, tools and best practices (especially AWS)
  • Agile / DevOps delivery methodologies and best practices
  • Identity and Access Management, and related technical standards e.g. SAML, OAuth, OIDC etc.
  • Presenting to technical governance forums

Where will you work?

You'll join our team at our digital hub in Sheffield:

We also all have the tech and tools we need to enable our people to work flexibly, and many of us are working remotely at the moment due to COVID-19.

We're the UK's biggest government department with over 85,000 diverse and brilliant people on our team. We are an equal opportunity employer and we welcome applications regardless of age, gender, race or sexuality.

Details. Wages. Perks.

In return for your skills we offer competitive salary up to £61,000p.a., a brilliant civil service pension with employer contributions circa 27%, and a generous leave package.

We have a broad benefits package built around your work-life balance which includes:
