Solution Architect for world-leading command and control software



Would you like to play a key role as a Solution Architect in Systematic, working with world-leading command and control software? Are you looking for a role where you can apply your technical leadership skills, and your forward-leaning mindset? Then take a closer look at this opportunity in our Defence organisation…


Join Systematic Defence Services, UK

Systematic is a rapidly growing and innovative software company with customers in more than 50 countries worldwide. Our mission is to develop software products that assist users in their tactical decision-making in critical situations. Our C4I software suite, SitaWare, is an interoperable digital command and control information system that delivers situational awareness on all levels of command. We are proud to say that the SitaWare Suite is the most widely used C4I suite worldwide.


As a Solution Architect, you will be part of the Defence Services organisation and will join a small but experienced UK-based team and work out of our office in Farnborough, Hampshire. The team focuses on the delivery of technical services, systems integration, training, deployment support and supplying wider services to our customers.


Play a key role in our solution architecture

As a Solution Architect, you are responsible for the technical aspects of projects, involving implementation of our software products into our customers’ organisations.

Your main focus will be to provide technical leadership and operational guidance to ensure optimum use of the software products, while working closely with project managers, product development teams and the end customer to document, develop and refine technical solutions.


You will:

  • Support project managers by participating in customer meetings to align strategies and determine business and technical requirements that will be used in developing solutions using Systematic’s defence software products
  • Create and maintain solution architecture assets, content and artefacts that clearly communicate solution designs
  • Support pre-sales work and proposal writing
  • Advise customers on best practices to install and use our software products
  • Provide hands-on support on the installation of software products within customers’ organisations


You should expect both domestic and international travel to customer sites, including regular visits to our headquarters in Aarhus, Denmark.


Experienced Solution Architect with strong leadership skills

You already have several years of experience as a Solution Architect, and hold a Bachelor or Master’s degree in engineering, computer science or similar.

To be successful in the role, you will need strong technical leadership skills, and know how to coach and motivate, guide and influence your stakeholders both inside and outside the organisation.


In addition, we are also looking for:

  • Strong technical presentation and communication skills enabling you to provide clear communication to customers and stakeholders on complex technical matters
  • Experience in deploying software applications into cloud-based and on-premises environments
  • Experience in software development technologies e.g. Java, C#, JavaScript
  • Experience in installing and managing Microsoft Windows Server technologies e.g. AD, SQL Server
  • Practical Scrum experience is a must.


It will be an advantage if you have military knowledge or experience, but it is not a requirement. Your leadership style is confident, and forward-leaning and you thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic, high-energy environment. You are an engaging team player with a positive and flexible mindset and are willing to learn and grow.


Join Systematic – more than just a job

Our key focus is to make the world a better place for all of us. Our unique combination of strong principles from CMMI and the best aspects of Lean and Scrum enable us to develop reliable, high-quality solutions for our customers and to deliver them at the agreed price and deadline. We work in teams, and some of our teams include well-integrated insourced developers.

We prioritise a sensible work-life balance, and our agile approach gives you every opportunity to plan your own tasks and working hours to a great extent. We value social cohesion at the workplace and have a very active staff association.


We work on security-classified projects, and as a Systematic employee in the UK, you must be able to live and work in the UK and meet the requirements for a UK security check. Read more here.
