Imagine a future where you’ll be part of a strong organisation delivering business value while aiming to increase yield and lower costs on our wind farms

Join us in this role where you’ll be a part of our agile organisation with the agenda of securing reliable production assets to our offshore wind farms. Your role will be setting a strategic direction for Operations Technology.

Welcome to Architecture & Technology
You’ll be part of an agile delivery team where you, together with your colleagues, will fulfil the business needs. At the same time, you’ll be a part of the Architecture & Technology community consisting of 100+ architects working with the different levels of architecture, i.e., business, enterprise, solution, application, and infrastructure. This community ensures great cohesion and a platform for high-quality knowledge sharing, and our matrix organisation secures a strong focus on both the delivery of business value as well as the architectural principles.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • Helping select the products we apply in the OT landscape
  • defining how the chosen products are applied in our OT solutions while adhering to the company standards for infrastructure and IT/OT security to ensure the right architecture
  • setting the technical direction and ensuring the necessary support throughout the implementation process of the OT solutions
  • continuously keeping yourself updated on relevant products, standards, and technologies within the OT/industrial domain.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • are proactive and can communicate architectural designs and decisions to both team members, the business, and IT stakeholders
  • have solid experience as an application architect and uses this experience to create architectural landscape overviews – prior experience in the wind industry is an advantage
  • have strong skills within products (e.g. SCADA systems, PLC controllers, etc.), technologies (e.g TETRA networks), and standards (e.g. IEC standards) used within OT/industrial environments
  • have experience in working in an agile setup (experience with SAFe is an advantage), including having the personality to navigate in a transparent, ever-changing, and cross-cultural environment
  • can make decisions based on an imperfect basis, as well as balancing the needs of different stakeholders (business, security, compliance, operations, ect.).
