In today’s technologically complex and highly competitive environment, many heritage brands and businesses are struggling to drive sustainable growth and vie with companies born in the digital age. Capgemini Invent designs advanced digital solutions and new business models that enable our clients to drive sustainable growth in today’s complex business environment.  We do this by combining our capabilities in strategy, technology, data science and creative design expertise with an inventive mindset.


The Opportunity

We are a team of innovative and fun consultants that come from all walks of life and from around the globe.  We are looking for a Director of Cloud Architecture join our group with knowledge of the banking, wealth management and capital markets industries to help us advance conversations with CxOs.

For all companies, it is urgent to embrace and scale their journey to the cloud that drives the maximum business elasticity, that is the capability of a company to quickly adapt to market changes & competition moves, to early adopt new technologies to speed-up innovation and leverage opportunities. Far from being an only technical project, the “move-to-cloud” is an enterprise-wide transformation initiative. We are looking for a technologist with significant knowledge of cloud as the financial service industry starts to adapt more rapidly.  We believe cloud helps with user experience and operations efficiency along with speed to market and operational resiliency.

Our ambition is to accelerate the digital transformation of clients by implementing new technology platforms to increase innovation capabilities (Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Internet of Things), industrializing existing solutions (Application Rationalization, Move to Cloud, Self Service), and by setting up cloud native operating models and Agile organizations.

We refuse this future to be limited to « born in the cloud » companies; we are committed to accelerate this journey across all levels of the maturity horizon.

As an illustration, these recent missions have been successfully carried out by our consultants:

  • Defining and implementing the conditions for the development of connected objects (IOT cloud platform, analysis and prioritization of business needs, definition of product roadmap) for a major player in the industry
  • Defining and supporting the digital transformation of an international service group, creating a digital factory to accelerate innovative projects (Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Internet of Things) based on native cloud technology platforms, enabling agile delivery and based on DevOps principles
  • Supporting the move to cloud of large international groups by defining the migration strategy and implementation of a new native cloud operating model for infrastructure and operations teams

Multi-cloud, edge, containers, serverless, the opportunities are immense. We are convinced there is an urgent need to help companies accelerate and go further in the adoption of public or hybrid cloud platforms, native cloud architectures and corresponding operating models. Organizations that have already begun the journey to the cloud also need to optimize their architectures, delivery processes and consumption of cloud services.

If you want to leverage your experience around defining cloud strategies, developing business cases and operating models, implementing a FinOps approach, structuring and piloting migration and transformation programs, setting up business models and cloud-ready delivery processes (based on DevOps/DevSecOps), Capgemini Invent is the place for you.
