Digital Architect


Macquarie’s Banking and Financial Services group is winning awards across Australia for delivering customers an awesome digital experience in their interactions with our Personal Banking, Business Banking and Wealth management products. 

Join our team as we build the Digital Bank of the future. We use technology as a catalyst to bring people together and help them realise their life milestones through our products and solutions which are designed by humans for humans.  

Are you an experienced Digital Architect who is passionate about playing a key role in delivering innovative and customer focused software solutions?  Do you have a desire to be part of an empowering, collaborative, Agile, dynamic and high paced environment?  Do you have the drive to make a change and share your expertise to help deliver on our vision? 

If this is you, we’d like to hear from you! 

As Domain Architect for Online and Self-service, you will set the technology direction for the domain and facilitate its execution by working closely with experienced product and engineering colleagues from multiple teams to bring together the solutions that contribute to the product strategy and your technology vision.   

What you'll do: 

  • define the strategic reference architecture and roadmap for the domain in alignment with the enterprise architecture and our digital product strategy 
  • collaborate with product leadership in defining a feasible roadmap for delivery of the product vision enabled by the reference architecture 
  • lead the definition of end-to-end architectures for key epics led by your domain 
  • perform architecture assurance of solution designs in your domain and assist with escalation of exceptions as required 
  • ensure that all solutions in your domain are aligned with our risk, security, data management and operational principles 
  • actively participate in the improvement of the architecture and engineering practice in Macquarie’s Banking and Financial Services group and the broader Macquarie 
  • provide guidance on solution architecture, engineering principles, and implementation of digital applications using existing and emerging technology platforms 
  • build a strong digital architecture community through collaboration with other architects and engineers and work through this community to execute on opportunities to deliver better client and business outcomes through our digital channels.

Ideally you will have: 

  • end-to-end solution architecture of customer-facing applications – i.e. ability to work with both the digital teams and backend teams to drive the overall outcome 
  • a Financial Services or FinTech background is highly desirable however we are open to hear from candidates from other consumer-facing sectors 
  • a practical understanding of cloud-native architectures 
  • experience with AWS and/or GCP service landscapes and the underlying technologies 
  • expert knowledge of the patterns and technologies to deliver real-time client experiences  
  • experience architecting to support different UI technologies - Web, Mobile, Chat etc. 
  • previous experience in an Agile environment 
  • a strong sense of urgency – we believe in a healthy balance between architecture purity and feature delivery    
  • you should be bold, collaborative, empathetic, have a commercial focus and a learning mindset.
