DWP. Digital with Purpose.

DWP is the UK's largest government department. We help people into work and make payments worth over £195bn a year, supporting millions of people on a daily basis.

Join our dynamic team as a Solution Architect to develop user centric design solutions for services DWP provides to Children & Families across the UK.

Your expertise will guide our innovative projects from conception to delivery, bringing together our organisational needs with cutting-edge solutions.

Our DWP Digital teams are using fresh ideas and ground-breaking technologies to create innovative, scalable, and user-centric digital solutions that are changing how government works.

If you're passionate about designing technical solutions for transformative change projects, with an important social impact, this could be the position for you.

Designing World-Class Products

You will join an experienced community of Solution Architects who work together to developing products and services for Children's and Families Services, which meet user needs, ensuring the technical quality of our solution designs.

We're looking for someone to support our delivery teams, blending technical (development and architecture) and behaviour (leadership and communication) skills to achieve our collective goals.

Security, verification and authentication are a big part of that. Users of our services need to prove who they are, so they can get the support they need. You will make sure that DWP digital services have the right Identity and Trust solutions in place.

You'll ensure that the technical quality and adherence of solution designs align with DWP architecture principles, standards, patterns and practices, Enterprise Architecture and Product Roadmaps.

You'll have experience of agile delivery methodologies, together with developing solutions for deployment into public cloud environments.

  • Experience with Application Architecture design and modelling techniques, patterns, tools, and standards.
  • Micro-service and API-led architecture design.
  • Event-based architecture design, patterns (including pub-sub and data streaming).
  • Public cloud technologies, design patterns, and best practice (e.g. Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform).
  • Presenting to technical governance forums
