Are you a positive-minded leader who is analytical, result-oriented and to the point? Are you ready for top-notch international collaboration? Join TOPdesk as an enterprise architect and help us tackle our current and future architectural challenges.

What are you going to do as an enterprise architect?

Lead a group of solution architects located in three countries! As we go through a big architectural transition, we need your enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to get our Enterprise Architecture team to a higher level and make TOPdesk’s architecture future-proof.

You understand customer needs, business needs and company goals. Based on requirements and input, you and your fellow enterprise architects develop a vision and a clear target architecture that supports our business value. With your team, you’ll fill in the details of this target architecture, considering the research’s requirements and boundary conditions. You’ll also collaborate with an external consultancy bureau to help us mature our architecture capability in general.

You help product managers understand and integrate the architecture roadmap into their product roadmap. Together, you strike the appropriate balance between delivering functional components on the one hand and technology and architecture on the other.

Finally, you’ll explain and communicate the architecture to the rest of the company, particularly the Product & Development department that realizes your plans.

Where will you end up?

You’ll become part of our international Enterprise Architecture team! We have enterprise architects in the Netherlands (Delft and Tilburg) and Germany (Kaiserslautern), but you can also choose to work from our Hungarian office in Budapest. The Enterprise Architecture team now consists of one chief architect and three other enterprise architects.

As explained above, you’ll lead a group of solution architects covering the various technical and functional domains and work closely with product managers and TOPdesk developers.

At TOPdesk, we encourage each other to keep on learning. For that, we provide a budget and extensive training opportunities.
