7 days ago
What is the opportunity?

RBC is a digitally-enabled relationship bank. We strive to engage our customers when, how and where it's most convenient and to provide a highly-personalized experience. We also collaborate broadly with innovative business and technology partners to create a platform and ecosystem that can bring even more value to our customers. We care deeply about the success of our customers and communities.

We're looking for an experienced solutions architect who is passionate about our mission to join the Digital Architecture team, with a focus on Mobile Banking and Digital Money Management. We want vocal futurists that can advocate their vision, who will be excited about creative problem-solving as part of a cross-functional team; will obsess over providing simple state of the art solutions; will tirelessly strive for the best end-user experience and will have the drive and desire to keep learning the latest architecture developments and standards / techniques.

What will you do?

  • You will join a team of similarly talented and driven architects and contribute to both ongoing improvements to our platform and customer experience and to new platform initiatives.
  • Partner closely with development and delivery teams and with business partners in a fast-moving, product-based development environment.
  • Be an integral part of the delivery team but play a vital role in linking design and architecture to enterprise standards and industry best practices.
  • Create end-to-end technical solution architectures using modern UI, micro-services and cloud technologies, and informed by hands-on prototyping.
  • Develop roadmaps to provide guidance for both product managers and engineering teams on the usage of new technologies and how to achieve our longer-term platform goals.

You think digital first and believe all customer experiences should be simple and effective. You are exceptional at incubating an idea then finding technologies to assemble and implement the solution. You are a creative problem solver that can develop a plan, take ownership of tasks, and are outcome focused. You are a team player and a proven technical mentor and are keen to coach others and share ideas with your team. You are an exceptional communicator able to articulate technical issues in plain language. You can build strong relationships and are a trusted advisor to both IT and business partners. You consider yourself a generalist and can pick the right tool for the job.

What do you need to succeed?

  • B.S. degree in Computer Science or related technical field (e.g. engineering, physics or mathematics), or equivalent practical experience.
  • 5+ years of software architecture experience that includes experience and understanding of architecture, application development, application systems design, and integration.
  • Solid experience with a variety of modern technologies/approaches including event-based architecture, cloud-based deployments, REST/API first applications, mobile and web technologies.
  • Strong hands on experience with mobile native development (with iOS, Android), CI/CD/Devops practices.
  • Ability to quickly evaluate options, make decisions and execute within an intense technology environment with multiple stakeholders.
  • Capability to establish and maintain effective partnerships and relationships with global architecture areas, Application Development, T&O management, Ecosystems and others.
  • Working knowledge of financial concepts and applications.
  • Experience with all aspects of architecture, including mobile and web application design, data modelling and database design, security and infrastructure.
  • Strong leadership skills and demonstrated ability to work effectively in large, cross-functional teams
  • Strong communication / presentation skills and a sense of ownership and drive.

What's in it for you?

We thrive on the challenge to be our best, progressive thinking to keep growing, and working together to deliver trusted advice to help our clients thrive and communities prosper. We care about each other, reaching our potential, making a difference to our communities, and achieving success that is mutual.
  • A comprehensive Total Rewards Program including bonuses and flexible benefits
  • Leaders who support your development through coaching and managing opportunities
  • Ability to make a difference and lasting impact
