The opportunity

As a software architect, you will work alongside a team of international experts in technology, business and the healthcare industry. Software development is one of the core strengths of the DHEC and pivotal in delivering digital health tools for our clients. With you we want to further strengthen our technical expertise.

Your key responsibilities

As a software architect, you are responsible for the oversight and guidance of the development team to ensure the architectural vision is maintained. Additionally, you will work together with near- and off-shore technical teams, vendors and external partners to ensure our tailored software solutions for our healthcare clients are compliant with health regulations and standards. In your role, you will collaborate with clinical teams, administrators, and other healthcare professionals to prioritize and address health-specific software requirements.

As technical expert, you evaluate and select software development technologies, tools and platforms. You also identify software requirements and design architectural blueprints for development team to follow. Additionally, you communicate requirements with other stakeholders like project managers, scrum masters, product owners, business analysts, developers and infrastructure or security architects, as well as provide training and support in business development.

  • Deep understanding of software architectures on all layers – network, infrastructure, security, persistence, application and frontend in order to be able to effectively communicate with stakeholders.
  • Proven experience in writing technical concepts, database design and data modeling.
  • Experience with CI/CD tech stacks, e.g. Azure DevOps, Jenkins, Puppet, Ansible, Terraform.
  • Experience in designing architectures in healthcare system landscapes and ensuring interoperability between healthcare-specific data formats, e.g. HL7/FHIR, OMOP, xDT, openEHR.
  • Good knowledge of the German healthcare system landscapes and reference architectures at hospitals, service providers, and/or health insurance companies, e.g., TI, HIS, LIMS.

Ideally, you’ll also have
