Data is a foundational and critical component to an organization's operational, tactical, and strategic roadmaps. The Domain Architect within the Data Privacy & Protection and Data Governance teams at Allegis is uniquely positioned to undertake the challenge of developing and managing our information lifecycle process, with the added complexity of translating privacy and information security policies into practice.
The Domain Architect will be critical in leading and influencing change among our business and IS stakeholders with respect to implementing privacyanddata governance"by design". The individual in this role must have an extensive experience in privacy risk analysis, implementing data protection standards, and architecting a robust data management solution via policies, processes, standards, and technology. The Domain Architect is responsible for:
The assessment of business requirements; approval of technical requirements; creation of technical specifications and solution design documents.
Initial work item estimate sizing for business prioritization and planning purposes.
Presenting designs to the Domain and Enterprise Architecture teams for review after initial design and prior to production implementation.
Technology solutions that require development to be viable - i.e., business applications, LOB applications, workflow systems, purchased applications, developed applications, and applications integration; subsequently guiding solution execution from design to production.
The quality and integrity of a solution; and is ultimately responsible for its viability in the Production environment.
Cultivating and maintaining strong relationships with Delivery teams and individual. members as a supportive trusted adviser, applying practical guidance, architectural direction, guardrails, technologies, and solutions.
Acting as an advisor and data champion throughout the organization to better position Allegis in data self-service and data privacy and information security compliance.
Liaise with the Global Privacy Office and Information Security leadership to ensure top priorities are incorporated into the Data Privacy & Protection and Data Governance roadmaps.
Establish domain specific standards, near/mid-term strategy, and roadmaps (0-18 months), in adherence to, and in support of Enterprise standards, strategy, and roadmaps.
Assist in creating the vision for future state technologies and architecture and participate in setting Enterprise standards and mid/long-term strategy / roadmaps (18-60 months), acting as domain specific subject matter experts.
Develop and implement solutions to ensure privacy policies, such retention schedule and data minimization requirements, are correctly implemented. Develop standards for implementing data anonymization, pseudonimization and encryption requirements into systems.
Create solutions that ensure "privacy by design" principles are incorporated from the first stages of development and partner with Enterprise, Platform, and Domain Architects.
Across IS to ensure those principles are being adhered. For example, this role will work closely with the EVOLVE program (our back-office transformation) throughout the product development and build phase.
Architect and steer implementation teams with guardrails, technologies, and solutions around consent and preference management, data subject rights, cookie management, data loss and prevention, data privacy management and PII discovery/catalog, and policies around data retention and governance.
Analyze new and enhanced data streams and uses of data within our technical landscape to help mitigate privacy vulnerabilities and prevent potential future privacy risks.
Capture and document current data flows along with proper data governance practices, policies, and procedures.
Develop solutions that ensure data is appropriately cataloged and mapped such that it is accessible and "fit for purpose" for all data consumers.
Assess business requirements, approve technical requirements, and create technical specifications and solution design documents.
Partner with the IS Manager and development leads to provide initial work item estimate sizing for work intake, business prioritization and planning purposes.
Guide a solution from concept to delivery - envision and create solutions that meet requirements; model the pieces of an infrastructure and their points of integration; prove the feasibility of a design; and can ultimately be implemented and supported in the Production environment.
Provide hands-on, expert-level technical assistance to developers; champions, matures, and nurtures ongoing data privacy & protection and data governance capabilities within our Data Cloud Platform (Snowflake).
Adhere to Enterprise Architecture (EA) standards, and may also assist in the creation of EA standards, methodologies, and frameworks.
Collaborates with management to establish protocols and processes for the discipline.
Ensure that new technology solutions are designed for optimal access and usefulness; and to leverage existing technologies, as appropriate.
Apply architectural and engineering concepts to design a solution that meets operational. requirements, such as scalability, maintainability, security, reliability, extensibility, flexibility, availability, and manageability.
Translate business strategy and requirements into well-architected solutions
Participate and lead research and development efforts (proof of concept, prototypes), as subject matter experts, when introducing new technologies, in conjunction with team and Product Owners.
Lead and define solution architecture to support delivering high impact products in a fast-paced environment.
Create and maintain logical architecture documentation.
Assist managers with developing the service level agreements (SLAs) and deployment of key performance measures.
Participate in various phases of the SDLC to perform QA/architectural review functions, and to ensure adherence to Enterprise Architecture (EA) technology standards and project specific solutions architecture. (i.e., design reviews).
Stays current with global changes, regulations, case studies, best practices, and events related to data privacy and protection.
Empowers teams with architecture and servant leadership enabling incremental implementations and positive change impact; performs peer architecture and change reviews with other Domain Architects and organizational stakeholders.
Serve as technical owner and point of contact for domain specific solutions.
Provide coaching and mentoring to team members in the areas of technical skills and competencies.
