    Employers’ Requirements

    Businesses looking to add technical architects to their team require candidates to be able to come up with large scale application roadmaps, as well as scalable and efficient product development. They will often favour those who have a few years of experience in a similar role, such as systems administrators, network engineers, or IT support specialists.

    CV Requirements

    Different companies will use different programs to underpin their business-wide data processes. As such, candidates should demonstrate a high level of experience in building large scale applications to meet these language requirements. In terms of soft skills, employers look for candidates who can demonstrate strong communication and problem-solving skills, as well as researching the latest industry trends and advances.

    Job Interview Preparation

    Preparing for an interview for a technical architecture job will depend on the nature of the industry, with formality depending on the size of the company. Applicants will often be asked to sit for a technical assessment, to be completed on-site or at home, and will be evaluated on these results. Candidates are also likely to be asked about any past works or projects, so the ability to present these in a way which breaks down their contributions and how solutions were developed will help their chances of success.

    Some frequently asked questions in job interviews for technical architecture roles include:

    1. What is the main difference between validation and verification?
    2. What is a frequent issue with software automation?
    3. What is the main difference between release and build?
    4. Could you please explain data-driven testing?
    5. Which tests would you conduct for web-based applications?

    Educational Requirements

    Candidates will need a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering or Computer Science. Additional training and qualifications in information architecture will also be extremely beneficial to your chances of success in securing a role.

Top Tip

"During your proposal, hiring managers want to hear you demonstrate a depth of knowledge in engineering skills such as algorithmic complexity. Be sure to seek clearer clarification if you are unsure of the questions in order to tailor your answer back to the hiring manager. "
