Solution Architect

For a beloved client in Limburg, i am currently looking for a Solution Architect. It concerns a fulltime (hybride) role for at least 6 months with the option to extend.

For the Industrial Automation (Operational Technology) department we are looking for an Solution Architect that can translate business demand into solutions that deliver the most value and meets the needs of the business. As a technical expert you have broad IT and OT knowledge and experience in several disciplines like IT Infrastructure, Industrial Software (integration), Automation Security, Industrial hardware (DCS, PLC etc.).

The department of Industrial Automation (IA) is a new department that needs to grow and mature. IA is responsible for automation systems that control industrial equipment. In terms of ISA 95 the work field of IA is in level 1 ,2 and 3 and stretches over certain Automation fields. As IA Solution Architect you will contribute to building the IA capability by: creating Solution Architectures for new and existing Automation Systems; shaping the architecture process which includes cooperation with key departments like Technical Services, IT and Digital Science and Data Technologies.

Main responsibility of the IA Solution Architect is drafting Solution Designs which cover topics like:

Requirements (Business, Service Level, Technical), Business Process Model, Architecture overview, System context, Component model, Data model, Infrastructure design, IAM, Security & compliance (GDPR, Data Containment etc.), Certificates, Disaster & recovery, Fallback scenario. Solution Designs need to be approved by the Architecture Board, for which the Solution architect is responsible. During project execution the Solution architect supports the project team by solving issues and reviewing.

As an IA Solution Architect you

  • are pragmatic (when needed),

  • have a hands-on mentality,

  • are used to work independently as well as within a team,

  • are strong in stakeholder management,

  • have excellent communication skills,

  • are persistent but also patient to get the job done and to help mature and grow a new department. This means stepping in when needed, multitasking and thus going beyond the role of Solution Architect.

Expected Experience and Knowledge

  • Expert in Industrial networks and systems.

  • Expert in integrating IT and IA.

  • Expert in Automation Security.

  • Knowledge of Industry 4.0 and/or other future visions.
