Geneva, Olten, St. Gallen, Zurich

Area of expertise:

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Job Description

Are you attracted by the "total work of art" of an IT architecture? Do you see inter-relationships and cross-connections while others are still stuck in the details? What you have understood yourself, you can also explain well to others?

Distinctive Experience: What you will do:

  • Clients come to us because they are facing a transformation. It's not about repairing, but about a new "house" that we design for them. They don’t need a new software, but a future-oriented approach to their IT infrastructure, figures and data.
  • Although everyone on the market uses the same software, we make more of it. Simply because we simultaneously combine Microsoft know-how and Accenture do-how. With the help of our founders, we work directly with the world's best.
  • Seeing and realizing added value is what this job is all about. Our customers expect end-to-end solutions, not a blueprint. In other words, a pure feature and function view is not enough here. Business relevance, efficiency, and employee experience count!
  • For this transformation, it is important that you see the big picture from the role of architect. You know when to bring in and which technical expertise you need and you know how to set the course together with the project manager.
  • To ensure that this is successful, you are usually already involved in the RFP phase together with the Sales department. This is where the decision is made as to what will be built. Your relevant questions help customers understand what they need for (better) business processes.
  • What supports you in all of this? Our collaboration culture. You are never left alone with difficult situations and problems. Exchange and mutual help in the Talent Communities are an integral part of our daily work.

Limitless Learning: What defines you:

  • We hire for mindset, and train for skills. No matter in which system you have solved architecture tasks so far, we don't require 10 years of Microsoft Dynamics experience here. You would ask why? Because software becomes obsolete, but not the ability to build cross-connections and design blueprints.
  • You are also interesting for us if you have worked with other ERP systems or have done organizational development within the company. It's all about processes and holistic solutions.
  • It is important that you enjoy communication with people. You will be at the forefront of many project steps and a key contact person for the company you support.
  • You are also able to communicate with non-technical people. You summarize projects to the board of directors at executive level, the colleagues on the customer side are happy about your practical arrangements and sketches.
  • Good Solution Architects have no career limits with us. For example, you can earn the coveted Avanade Accenture certification for system integration and be part of the big global projects.  

What makes us a top employer:

At Avanade you get both: the benefits of a large corporation and the entrepreneurial spirit of a dynamic team. 

  • Successful quick start: the multi-day introductory event gives you an overview of the most important tools & processes for your start (currently remote sessions).
  • Personal Career Advisor by your side from day one to support, coach, network and also help you find your place and balance with us.
  • Flexible working hours and Home Office in line with project activities possible.
  • At least 80 hours of training per year and Microsoft certifications.
  • State-of-the-Art equipment (laptop, smartphone including private use).
  • Attractive pension plan and benefits in occupational and non-occupational accident insurance.
  • Here you can find more Avanade benefits.

We believe that inclusive and diverse teams can overcome any obstacles - if you are passionate and courageous about taking on challenges, you have come to the right place. Your application is welcome - regardless of your origin, nationality, faith, disability, age, marital status, partnership status, sexual orientation, and gender. With us, you can just be you. Diversity in every form is a matter close to our hearts and an integral part of the Avanade culture.
