Take your ambitions to the next level

In this role, you will be responsible for the production of detailed functional design for solution components, whether based on a packaged solution or on custom development. This involves working with clients to understand and flesh out business requirements to ensure they are complete and do not imply a solution. You will also communicate with individual project subject matter experts (SMEs) to ensure they fully understand the business requirements that impact their application areas. You will be responsible for ensuring that the solution for a given application area integrates seamlessly with the overall end-to-end solution. You will define and execute plans for testing and deployment of their solution components, acting as the overall owner of the conceptual solution, and may present the solution to client stakeholders. This role may apply in either a development environment or a core support environment, depending on assignment. It includes supporting 23,000 employees on approximately 200 PSAs.

  • Contribute to the solution architecture by identifying the degree of re-use of existing and/or pre-packaged application functions versus the need for the development of new and/or customized functions;
