Join our Data Architect -team!

Architects at Futurice are generalists working across industries to help clients solve their important challenges in business and technology. They work with digital services, software development and improving how digital is done in big organizations. Architects have a wide understanding of technology and a toolset of modern frameworks and methodologies. They often have years of experience in software development but have extended the scope of problems to tackle as they also want to see the impact being made to organizational issues.

As a Data Architect you truly get a deep-dive into a client's data. Guided by business and user needs, Data Architect at Futurice designs end-to-end overall architecture, which is needed to ingest, process, store and publish data for further usage. You will e.g. work on

  • Designing and building data platform, data mesh and data warehousing solutions in the cloud.

  • Planning architecture and building infrastructure for data ingestion, processing, analytics, visualizations and business intelligence systems.

  • Integrating AI/Machine learning inference as part of a data platform.

  • Data governance and (conceptual and logical) data modeling.

  • Designing and implementing data pipelines to handle different types of source data.
