Posted on: July 1, 2024

Job Description:

We Are:

Accenture is a global professional services company with leading capabilities in digital, cloud and security. Combining unmatched experience and specialized skills across more than 40 industries, we offer Strategy and , Interactive, Technology, and Operations services, all powered by the world's largest network of Advanced Technology and Intelligent Operations centers. Our 738,000 people deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity every day, serving clients in more than 120 countries. We embrace the power of change to create value and shared success for our clients, people, shareholders, partners and communities. Visit us at www.accenture.com .

You Are:

Most software developers, engineers, and architects get to build software systems. Very few get to say with a straight face: "I'm reinventing banking." Or hospitality, or logistics, or insurance. We're combining technology, industry expertise, and entrepreneurial experience to massively disrupt our clients' core businesses. We partner with our clients to propel them into the future and to help create better products and experiences for everyone.

We're doing this by leveraging the power of patterns (Anti-Corruption Layering, Strangler fig, Microservices, Event Sourcing, etc) and technologies (Kafka, Solace, Change Data Capture, Node.js, Go, Containerization, PaaS) to build cloud-native solutions for the enterprise based on modern event driven architectures.

Our team is deeply hands-on, highly technical, and prides itself in being battle hardened, lead-from-the-front technology thought leaders. The ability to take complex ideas, synthesize them for common understanding, while maintaining a focus on details is a must for this role.

In this role as a Core Systems Architect you will be focused on designing, architecting, and then building new systems of record & core processing platforms at the heart of industries. Where once was a system put in place in 1970 to run like clockwork every night during batch will now stand a newly decoupled and scalable application to bring functions like Ledger, Inventory, and Supply Forecast into the modern era. The systems you design won't just be integrations between big SaaS but the kernel at the heart of multi-billion-dollar companies.

We are in the midst of helping clients fundamentally rethink how to transform 20+ years old systems and services in investment and core banking, payments, retirement and wealth management into modern cloud native. The industry is at a crossroads and needs help from the outside in order to make most efficient use of capital, retain customers in the face of emerging competition, and compete as the market rapidly changes. This also means a fundamental change to architecture, engineering and delivery processes, and re-thinking once unshakeable assumptions.

We are looking for industry veterans who have lived with the loose collection of functionalities bolted onto existing monoliths: hard to maintain and harder to enhance. If you want to be part of the next generation of core banking, we have a place for you.

Preferred Background in 1 of the following Industries:
