We’re looking for an experienced Principal Architect to drive the technical direction of our Application Platform and Common Services, which are used as part of multiple Canon Medical healthcare IT products. Our cross-functional teams are responsible for creating scalable and robust services and solutions that support clinical applications.  This is an excellent opportunity to be part of a global organisation developing advanced clinical applications to transform patient care.  We strive to create technology that makes a meaningful difference to people’s lives, helping doctors to restore patients’ health and well-being.

You will take a lead role in understanding the needs of platform customers, proposing the high-level design required to meet these needs, and supporting multiple platform software development teams to prioritise and implement the changes required. This role involves working with Product Management, Architects and Senior Engineers across the global Canon Medical R&D organisation.

More specifically, you will be responsible for determining the key architectural principles for the design of platform services and components, to create supportable and maintainable systems. This will require consulting with relevant stakeholders and consuming teams to understand and help prioritise requirements, proposing the technical direction to meet these needs, whilst also being open to review and suggestions from colleagues. Longer term responsibilities will include evaluating technologies for inclusion in the platform, with the ability to balance short term needs with future goals, and assisting to create technical roadmaps, publishing architectural decisions and high-level designs to consuming development teams. You will also work in collaboration with development teams based in Edinburgh to assist with high-level design activities and resolving any significant architectural issues that arise during implementation. One final key aspect of this position will be leading cybersecurity analysis and strategy planning across these platform components.

To succeed in this role, you will be enthusiastic and passionate and be able to take an open-minded and pragmatic approach to making difficult decisions and compromises. You will have excellent communication skills with the ability to put across technical ideas clearly and incorporate feedback. The successful candidate will be able to adapt their communication and technical leadership style to meet the individual needs of the members of the team and of colleagues in the wider organisation.

This role requires strong technical expertise in a range of technologies, including the following areas:

  • Scalable & highly-available systems
  • Hybrid cloud & on-prem deployments
  • Cybersecurity, OWASP
  • RESTful web services
  • Microservices
  • Docker, Kubernetes
  • Windows & Linux

Experience in Object Oriented language and frameworks, such as Java, Spring framework, C#, C++ would also be desirable, as well as knowledge of healthcare standards (DICOM, HL7, IHE, etc.).

We aim to offer an inclusive, flexible, and balanced working environment, by being an employer that cares for and respects its employees. We are part of a global family, that works closely with other development teams based in Japan, America, Canada and France; giving the opportunity of work placements at partner sites. As an employer, we want to provide you the right environment to allow you to develop your career, by giving you time to learn new skills and pursue your own creative projects.

We support flexible working and are happy to discuss this as part of the interview process.
