Job summary

About bp's Architecture Organization:

bp's architecture teams solve sophisticated challenges with our data and technology expertise to help bp advance a lower carbon future. We are organised as a collection of Products, Services and Platforms teams that work together to enable our users to accomplish their missions.

bp is on an exciting dual-cloud journey, and the enablement of its technologies to support rapid adoption and improved maturity in the cloud is essential to achieving its digital ambitions.


About the role

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a part of the strategic Compute portfolio within Digital Enterprise & Operations. It operates across four global regions, servicing bp's digital organisations' application hosting demands which to date hosts upwards of six-thousand servers.
The AWS platform architect develop and evolve the architecture and solutions over which the bp's cloud offerings are built. As the platform architect you will:
  • Define and detail the component technical solutions and services used to deliver the services including the development of designs and other technical artefacts.
  • Continuously assess the health of platform and identify recurring problems/bottlenecks and recommend improvements to eliminate recurrence. Collaborate with the AWS service owner, engineering, and partner teams to modernise the architecture and improve the technical solutions core to the platform offerings.
  • Act as the main technical point of contact for AWS cloud related engagements by application teams. Enable wider adoption of bp's cloud offerings by advising teams on how best to develop against the platform. Where appropriate champion their requirements and work on incorporating them into the architecture.
  • Collaborate with other architects, responsible for adjacent platforms i.e. Azure, Security & networking to rationalise the use of networking and security solutions to achieve operational simplification, and consistency of experience.

About you

Your experience and expertise will include:
  • BSc degree in Computer Science or equivalent.
  • Deep knowledge and practitioner experience in AWS solutions and technologies especially Networking, Identity & Security, Management & Governance, Compute, Containers and Serverless product groups.
  • Strong understanding of cloud based application architecture using microservices, API's, containerisation and serverless technologies using native cloud services.
  • Certified as a AWS Solution Architect and proven experience architecting scalable services and products on the AWS cloud for large multi-national organisations.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to relate sophisticated topics in simple and accessible language.
  • A proven grasp of architecture development and design thinking in an agile environment; TOGAF certification a plus.

  • A healthy work-life balance.
  • Chill-out and collaboration spaces in a modern office environment.
