The architecture Enterprise and Technology team is a dynamic team of experts , supporting our business and IT colleagues to define a strategy and target architecture. Organizing things daily is not our forte and let’s be honest, most of us don’t really like it.

To support our department we are looking for a colleague with an extraordinary organizational talent to setup and maintain our Architecture Governance. Being the center of our department – you report to the head of Architecture – you will take care of the day to day organization of all architecture files, making sure that processes are put in place for architecture follow up and validation is in place from ideation phase until delivery. You like getting things organized in the correct tooling, making life day-to-day easy for the whole department – and finding solutions for all simple and repetitive tasks. You have the creativity to setup procedures, efficient organization and preparation of meetings – supported by a formal architectural framework (TOGAF).

As you have an IT background, you will also be managing real content such as management summaries of decisions and challenge architects in selling the ideas in a comprehensible story. Using your network in the company, you will promote the architecture vision within the company. This position is a perfect spot to get to know the whole company ’s architecture!

Are you into a real challenge, please join our team!
