Solution Designer

Application Deadline

The best of the best Solution Designer – are you aspired to drive solution realization across the Vattenfall value chain.

Whilst the solution architecture and selection are delivered by IT Architecture, it’s the Solution Designer that figures out the realization by fitting all this stuff together based on a good understanding of the original business requirement, the existing system set and what does and doesn’t work. Once the design has been completed, work packages are divided up and the Solution Designer stays in close contact with the Scrum teams. Progress is reviewed continuously and the solution is tweaked as problems come to light or if the developers suggest a better way of doing something. You thrive in working closely with many stakeholders, countries, partners and third parties.

This is what you’ll be doing
  • You translate user stories into detailed solution and integration design, and you are a master at combining the engineering expertise of the scrum teams with the overall solution architecture.
  • You interact closely with Product Owners and Commercial & Operational stakeholders to ensure solid understanding of customer & business & partner needs.
  • You work closely with the Solution Architect from the Transformation IT (IT Architecture); the scrum teams in your chain (these teams deliver parts of the chain); as well as with Application Management and Infrastructure. You connect, bridge, and harness their problem-solving power to achieve simple and effective technical designs.
  • You give Product Owners and Operational Stakeholders strong advice with recommended options, consequences, and solutions inside the given architecture. You give the scrum teams strong guidance on how the solution needs to work, and ensure what they build follows the chain goals and architecture.
  • You drive design alignment between scrum teams in four countries across different cultures.
  • You ensure non-functional and operational readiness are included by nature.
  • You ensure sufficient documentation of realization and keep it up-to-date.
  • You ensure low software complexity of realization in the scrum teams to ensure speed of change also in future.
