Office 365 Architect

What your role will be at IW

The customer can count on you to translate their challenges into a smoothly working solution, built in Office 365, or as a private cloud or on-premises solution, should their guidelines dictate this.

Your colleagues look up to you because of your broad insight into the technological aspects of the Office 365 suite of internet services and the way that you can integrate them with other IT solutions.

As the one responsible for the delivery of the solution to the customer, as well as maintaining the business relationship with the customer and any other involved parties, both the customers and your colleagues consider you as their trusted advisor for anything Office 365 or SharePoint related.

What you have to offer

As a facilitator, you have organised workshops with customers to determine the strategic impact of the solution and to clearly define the functional requirements. Afterwards you use all this input to build an information and/or technical architecture that will make the goals of your customer a reality.

You have multiple years of experience performing in this role and you can proudly provide examples and explain how you contributed to the application architecture.

You stay on top of all new possibilities, standards and best practices concerning Office 365 and Azure solutions. At the moment you are conceptually up to speed with PowerShell, TypeScript, REST API's, React, Angular, SharePoint CSOM, Azure Functions, Azure Storage, Azure Automation, Azure AD, LogicApps, WebJobs, Power Apps and Power Automate, Security principles (Content classification, encryption, authentication etc) and you know when to include these technologies in your solutions.

Your talents and skills

  • An accumulated technical background and deep rooted interest in the inner workings of the components that you use

  • A natural gift for coordination and a high sense of responsibility

  • Strong communication skills and a high emphatic ability

  • You fit well in any group and you are quickly accepted as a trusted team member

  • You are a born mentor who easily can provide a clear and simple explanation as well as a deep and substantiated insight on the technical components you use

  • You have a very structured and quality driven way of working

  • You work independently and can handle the freedom that comes with taking ownership of your engagement
