Posted on: October 12, 2018

Job Description:

Brighthouse Financial is a new company established by MetLife. We're on a mission to help people achieve financial security. Built on a foundation of industry knowledge and experience, we specialize in offering essential annuity and life insurance products designed to help customers protect what they've earned and ensure it lasts more predictably. In an industry that often has a reputation for complexity, confusion, and cost, Brighthouse Financial is different. Our approach includes simplicity, transparency, and more value so customers can face the future with confidence. Brighthouse Financial is seeking passionate, high-performing team members to help us carry out our mission and be part of an exciting journey toward improving the financial futures of our millions of customers. Sound like you? Read on. Role Value Proposition: While SaaS solutions are becoming increasingly prevalent across industries, we believe that our target state architecture is truly unique in the breadth of use of these solutions and the degree to which standard, cloud-based services will be leveraged. In leveraging these solutions, we believe that we will greatly simplify how we deliver business functions within Brighthouse Financial. We will remain with vendors' standard offerings, while at the same time benefitting from the ongoing innovation that those vendors bring. But while that simplicity should allow Brighthouse Financial to respond more quickly - and less expensively - to changing business needs, bringing together these services for supporting business capabilities requires that these solutions are well integrated, secure, reliable, and highly available and perform well. It also requires that these solutions align with the overall enterprise architecture to lower cost and avoid complexity. The Lead Solution Architect is responsible for defining and communicating the components, their relationships and evolution over time for implementing a technology solution that represents an intersection of elements from Brighthouse Financial's Business, Information, Application and Technology architecture domains, and addresses a specific business capability, opportunity or problem. Key Responsibilities:

  • Responsible for the development, ownership and communication of the solution architecture for a project/program, which typically entails standing up a business capability by implementing a SaaS application and integrating it with other SaaS applications. This includes developing the context, integration, information, security, operations and infrastructure views of the architecture and their alignment with the business architecture
  • Collaborates with domain architects to ensure integrity of solution, alignment with enterprise architecture strategies and adherence to reference architectures and standards
  • Works with internal and external implementation teams in validating the feasibility of the proposed solution and providing technical guidance to those teams during implementation
  • Reviews the technical design created by implementation teams and ensures its alignment with the solution architecture
  • Participates in project planning and maintains related project architecture artifacts
  • May provide work guidance to other architects or consultants and oversee deliverables created by them Essential Business Experience and Technical Skills:
    • Experience architecting solutions that support corporate capabilities such as investments, finance, risk, actuarial, accounting, tax, human resources, logistics, audit, legal and compliance
    • 10+ years of experience architecting solutions encompassing various aspects of architecture such as context, integration, information, security, operations and infrastructure
    • Ability to understand and apply abstract architectural concepts at a project and enterprise level
    • Broad and deep understanding of multiple technologies, reference architectures and design patterns in the areas of application and data integration (e.g. cloud/SaaS integration, web services, REST services, messaging, ETL, SFTP), information (e.g. Hadoop, data warehousing, master data management), security (e.g. identity and access management, single sign on, data encryption, vulnerability), operations (e.g. monitoring) and infrastructure (e.g. network connectivity, VPN, MPLS, back up, high availability, disaster recovery)
    • Experience using one or more formal architecture frameworks such as FEAF, TOGAF, or Zachman; certification in any of them is a plus
    • Experience working with agile methodologies and knowledge of DevOps
    • Excellent interpersonal, verbal and written communication and presentation skills with the ability to effectively convey architectural concepts to business and technology peers as well as senior management
    • Effective influencing and negotiating skills
    • Experience managing third party procurement supplier; experience sourcing and contracting Technology solutions, specifically "Software as a Service" (SAAS) providers a plus Travel: Up to 25% Lead Solution Architect
