Architects are the backbone of our service delivery and perform typical architecture activities. The role requires successful completion of our training program or equivalent professional experience.


Level 4
Principal architects take on complex tasks, e.g., the role of lead architect in transformation projects and lead teams and / or competence centers. The role requires extensive experience as an architect.
