Job Description

Do you want to help our clients to get the most out of their cloud investments? So do we! 

At Avanade, our vision is to be the leading digital innovator, realizing results for our clients and their customers through the power of people and the Microsoft ecosystem. We have been awarded Global Microsoft Alliance Partner of the Year 14 times and have more than 30.000 Microsoft certifications, are the world's largest scrum.org partner and have moved more than 8M seats to Office 365.  

About the role  

As an architect with Avanade, you will help our clients realize the full potential of their Office 365 investments while meeting their business needs.  

You will mostly work onsite with clients in a leading role as part of a project team. You will have an outstanding opportunity to expand your skillset through exciting and innovative work, as well as training. At Avanade, we take training very seriously and provide access to in person training, online training and advanced certifications.  

We will give you an exciting opportunity to grow personally and professionally together with other talented, passionate and dedicated lead architects, in close cooperation with our clients.  

About you 

As an Office 365 Architect in Avanade you will collaborate actively in our agile projects, both as a scrum master and as a participant. You will lead the client discussions designing how their business needs can be implemented in Office 365 and associated services. You are an active part of the sales process with innovative solutions and you work in all phases of an implementation (from analysis to post deployment support). You partner with multi-functional technology teams to integrate solutions and you are a role model and lead our onshore and offshore teams.  

Your skills and experience include: 

  • You have a relevant bachelor's or master's degree 
  • 5+ years of experience in designing collaboration solutions on the Microsoft Office 365 platform 
  • A background in development and potentially infrastructure, allowing you to connect the dots between the business, developers and infrastructure 
  • Extensive knowledge of Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online, Microsoft Flow and PowerApps 
  • Life cycle management, governance and QA processes in Office 365 
  • Modern web front-end technologies including SPFx, TypeScript, JavaScript and React 
  • C#, REST Services, integration, security and Microsoft Graph 
  • Azure platform and PowerShell 
  • Agile / Scrum, Automated testing and Design Patterns 
  • Team lead roles with both onshore and offshore teams 

We'd love it if you: 

Enjoy working in teams and have excellent written and oral/presentation skills in English. You are interested in growing your own technology and architect skills and you keep yourself updated on the latest changes and potential impact, while advising our clients and colleagues about the latest functionality and roadmap for the Office 365 platform. We'd love also if you are comfortable and experienced with presenting for both technical and non-technical audiences, knowing how to adapt the message to the target audience. You live by the term "configure before code" and know how to combine the Office 365 platform with other offerings like Azure. 

Why Avanade? Because there's no place like this!  

If you're a self-starter, an optimist and someone who loves to get things done, you'll fit right in at Avanade. People who thrive here are motivated, interested in learning and genuinely have a desire to be the best at what they do. If that's sounds like you, you sound good to us.  

In return, you'll have access to the latest technology in the Microsoft ecosystem, partnering with some of the biggest and the best companies across the globe and some seriously forward-thinking people to work with to make career-defining things happen.  

If you'd like to get even better at what you do and transform businesses from the inside out, there's no better place. 

What we offer 

  • Opportunity to work for a Microsoft gold partner with unrivalled development and training (80 hours per year for training and paid certifications) 
  • Competitive base salary  
  • Reward and Recognition scheme  
  • Wide benefits package  
  • Avanade University - real-time access to technical and skilled resources globally 
  • Dedicated career manager to encourage your progression 
  • Engaged and helpful coworkers genuinely interested in you 

As is the nature of working within a global professional services environment, your clients and projects will change over time so the flexibility to travel is a pre-requisite. All our roles are project based so typically will involve working on client site throughout Ireland.
