Pega Senior Systems Architect
Who we're looking for
Schroders are engineering their global Client On-boarding process for the digital age using PEGA Cloud as the key underlying platform. As a result we are strengthening our in-house PEGA development team to help deliver real change to our organisation.
You will consider yourself a PEGA subject matter expert and hold the PEGA Senior Systems Architect (SSA) certificate. This is a hands on-role so you will be pivotal member of our delivery teams. It's important that you will have been involved in successful PEGA implementations, ideally in a financial services environment.
Working in a Scaled Agile (SAFe) environment, you will be a key member of a high profile strategic global program with the likelihood of the PEGA platform expanding across other areas of the business. As we grow PEGA within the organisation we will be looking to grow an internal centre of excellence and this role will play a key part of that CoE.
We're a global investment management company. We help institutions, intermediaries and individuals around the world invest money to meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future.
We have around 4,000 people on six continents. And we've been around for over 200 years, but keep adapting as society and technology changes. What doesn't change is our commitment to helping our clients, and society, prosper.
We moved into our new HQ in the City of London in 2018. We're close to our clients, in the heart of the UK's financial centre. We offer flexible working appropriate for a client solutions focussed role. As such we recognise that successfully balancing personal and professional commitments brings out the best in our teams and therefore all roles in Global Technology are reviewed for suitability for flexible working arrangements, with this specific opportunity available to applicants from 3 to 5 days per week. We passionately believe that individual performance is enhanced by embracing the whole individual and structuring a working environment that supports them.
