What we’re looking for?

Reporting to the Head of Stores, we currently have an opportunity for a Solution Architect to join our team to support the delivery function by designing, developing and communicating architectural models, processes, tools and patterns.  This role will see you working with engineers, other architects, as well as key stakeholders and teams across the Kmart Group (Kmart, Target and Catch).  A key objective of this role is to define and constantly evolve future architecture, to ensure we continue to adapt and build on modern architectures and practices, thus reducing our technical debt and driving value faster.

Kmart has embarked on a journey of widespread digital transformation, involving architecture and application modernisation, with a focus on delivering value faster. We have a significant amount of new work in the pipeline to continue to evolve and reinvent the customer shopping experience, so this role will see you build fault tolerant and scalable solution architectures that are modern and fit for purpose.

  • Ability to articulate why you have recommended a technique, tool, platform, language, or framework
  • Amazing software engineering skills, with the ability to design and develop short-term proof-of-concepts when required
  • A strong understanding of modern architectural patterns with a focus on API’s and microservices
  • Experience designing and building solutions involving API’s, microservices, domain events, and distributed data
  • Knowledge of cloud platform services and experience designing and building well-architected cloud-native applications
  • Knowledge of solutions addressing security, scalability, fault tolerance, and high availability
  • Ability to engage with multiple stakeholders to conduct workshops and design solutions that are practical, future proof, and aligned to the strategy
  • Ability to convey complex, technical ideas in a way that a non-technical audience understands
  • Define digital capabilities and their value to the business
  • Strong retail experience and domain knowledge
  • Great decision making, relationship building and communication skills

Our benefits

  • Development opportunities across Kmart and the Wesfarmers Group
  • Excellent remuneration, a generous bonus scheme and access to the Wesfarmers share plan
  • Discount card for Kmart, Coles, Target and Officeworks
  • Support of flexible working
  • Casual dress and free onsite parking

At Kmart we aim to ensure our teams reflect the diversity of the communities in which we operate.
