Amsterdam,

The Cloud First Solution Architecture function focuses on creating service solutions to help our clients transform their IT capabilities to drive optimal value out of their investments in cloud platform technologies, such as Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services and Oracle Cloud.

THE WORK:

As a Cloud First Solution Architect you work directly with clients to design the optimal service solution for the effective adoption of cloud technology. Examples include hybrid cloud implementations, cloud centers of excellence, 7R based application migration projects, cloud managed services and transformation of operating models and human talent.

Key activities:

+ Engage with client representatives to discuss, co-create and present solutions to their organization’s needs

+ Lead solution teams in large, complex client engagements that may include multiple solution architects and transition, transformation and operations experts

+ Participate in the creation of content for proposals, client presentations and contractual documents

+ Build and maintain an internal network and working collaboratively with the various Accenture entities to bring the best of Accenture to your client.

With all our roles, there is some in-person time for collaboration, learning and building relationships with clients, peers, leaders and communities. As an employer, we will be as flexible as possible to support your specific work/life needs.

WHO WE ARE:

We are Accenture — a global professional services organization, which includes being a vital services partner to the world’s major cloud providers — AWS, Azure, Google, and others. Demand for their offerings — and for ours — skyrocketed last year as the Covid-19 pandemic rolled on. Organizations had to grapple with the sudden dispersal of their workforces and supply chains.

To meet that surging demand we consolidated our far-flung cloud-related skill sets into one highly-focused services group, named Accenture Cloud First. It started out last September with 70,000 cloud professionals, a number that’s growing rapidly. Accenture Cloud First is on a mission that has a $3 billion/three-year investment behind it.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

+ Successfully completed master’s in science or technology;

+ Excellent oral and written communication skills in English and in either Dutch, Flemish or French;

+ Experience as Solution Architect for transformation and/or operations solutions in the field of infrastructure and/or cloud, with a proven track record in engagements of 5M€ and above at enterprise clients;

+ Excellent client/customer relationship management skills at the executive level, ideally with proven experience working at the C-level and client/customer service management skills;

Ideal candidates have a strong urge to innovate, embrace continuous learning, bring financial and contractual acumen, understand how IT capabilities should be organized and have multiple years of experience with infrastructure and (public/private) cloud technologies.

BONUS POINTS IF YOU HAVE:

+ Substantial experience in traditional IT infrastructure and cloud technology (e.g. AWS, Microsoft Azure or GCP), ideally with one or more certifications;

+ Good people management skills;

+ Willingness to travel continentally.
