Now is a unique moment in history to join Airbus Defence & Space!
A vacancy for a Digital Platform Solution Architect has arisen within Airbus Defence & Space in Toulouse.
The space and defence industry is facing unprecedented opportunities and challenges in a world that is becoming more complex and less predictable.
For instance, deploying payloads into space is becoming much cheaper, which opens up space to new commercial users and entrepreneurial business models.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (“drones”) provide deep insight into the well-being of our fragile planet, and allow delivery of payloads into areas that are too dirty, dull or dangerous for human pilots. Drones also hold promise for moving people around congested cities.
Meanwhile, the ramifications of conflicts around the world stretch all the way to the core of affluent Western democracies, both offline and online. Threats to critical infrastructure, payment systems and mainstream media for instance illustrate the asymmetric nature of many conflicts, requiring better security and protection in cyber-space.
Space is a crucial foundation for these transformations, as it enables promising internal and external use cases that improve operational performance, open up new markets, and ultimately contribute to making the world a safer place.
This position will require a security clearance or will require being eligible for clearance by the recognized authorities.
As an Advanced Solution Architect – Digital Platforms, you will be responsible for the solution and service architecture and design for customer projects.
You will be consulting our customers regarding the possibilities of our platforms (Cloud, IoT, Big Data) and will be gathering their requirements to design a top notch digital service for them.
