CAREERS

Fenixys has established three key activities to drive these transformation programs:

  • Program Architects brings value to the program management. They provide advisory on governance, teams organization and contribute to the delivery plan. Based on their experience on large scale programs, they can identify and address any issue or constraint related to the delivery. They work globally on the program, considering constraints such as budget, organization, resources, timelines but can also dive into the details if necessary.

  • Business Architects have a strong knowledge of systems and of the business. Business Architects can bridge the gap between business and IT, working with business to ensure that the solutions are implemented as per business needs. They can document and review the value chains within the bank to drive the delivery plan and bring the most value to the business as early as possible in the program.

  • Technical Architects work with IT and the Business Architects to ensure that the implemented solution is optimized from an IT point of view and benefits as much as possible from the latest technology. They can identify problems within the technical architecture and suggest how to solve them. They can also focus on important technical areas such as data migration, interfaces between systems or messaging standards.

Fenixys is growing! After proving that our approach works on major IT transformation programs involving Murex’ MX.3 system, more and more financial institutions are turning to Fenixys for guidance. We are looking for strong candidates to work in the business architecture team.
