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.


We're reinventing what tomorrow looks like at Jaguar Land Rover. There's a revolution underway in our industry - and we're leading it. We've always been innovators. But our future will be driven by the possibilities created by new technologies as never before.

We are looking for a Senior Solution Architect who will help us realise our business vision for a cloud-native connected-vehicle platform that will provide our customers, suppliers and partners with seamless connected services delivered through an industry-leading global platform that will generate new income streams for our business and also help drive down costs through the use of data analytics.

We are looking for someone who will work closely with stakeholders to define and evolve a system architecture that meets both functional and operational needs and, importantly, provides direction and support to our agile delivery teams. You will be a valued member of our Global Digital Development Centre team, contributing to the strategic direction of the technology and solutions delivered.

You will be responsible for defining and communicating the structure and dynamics of a solution sufficient to meet the requirements of the various key stakeholders in addition to identifying and highlighting architectural risk and providing recommendations for mitigation. The role will also include enabling the agile delivery teams to work effectively through a clear understanding of the separation of concerns and system dependencies. Working in close collaboration with the engineering teams through the tech leads, the solution architect will evolve the architecture as the detail is laid down and through architectural prototyping as necessary.



  • Preferably educated to bachelor's degree level or above in a computer science or engineering subject.

Architecture Development Methods

  • Solid experience of the solution architecture discipline, ideally as part of a recognised agile Software Development Liftcycle 
  • Experience in developing architecture using a recognised framework, e.g. TOGAF


  • Ideally from a software development/engineering background

Desirable Technical Skills and Knowledge

  • Cloud-native architectures
  • Message-driven architectures
  • Real-time data and stream processing
  • Micro services-based architectures
  • IOT architectures
  • Relational, non-relational databases (NoSQL), time-series databases, data lakes and analytics


  • Experience in architecting within agile delivery methods e.g. scaled agile or scrum


  • At least one full project cycle in the role of Solution Architect accountable for the architecture of the end-to-end system


Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you'll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan, private medical cover and performance related bonus scheme. As a manager, you'll also be able to select one of our luxury premium vehicles to lease at a fraction of the cost.
