Get The Future You Want
Who you’ll be working with
Our Digital Architects are the architects of positive futures and are at the heart of driving better business outcomes with and for our clients. As part of shaping this future, we use talented Architects to deliver leading-edge digital solutions for our clients, combining a clear understanding of business value and a consultative approach to make the difference.
Working with leading architects, technology consultants and business sector experts, you will be at the heart of delivering profitable outcomes in business- and technology-oriented environments, helping a broad range of private- and public-sector clients to achieve their strategic goals. Our DevOps Architects sit within the Digital Architecture guild, part of the Business Technology practice in Capgemini Invent. We are a dynamic community that values growth, professional development and the ability to make a real difference. We work in diverse multi-disciplinary teams, hand-in-glove with our clients.
Our DevOps Architects play a pivotal role in realising clients’ business outcomes. They are at the forefront of maximising automation for lean software development.

What we offer
Capgemini Invent offers a cultural environment for architects to learn, to take ownership and contribute to business growth
Our consultants are formally trained from industry experts on management consulting and client delivery. Examples of these include Agile delivery (Scrum Master, Product Owner, Scaled Agile Framework) and technologies (AWS, Azure) and Cyber security (CISSP, CISM)
Client engagements give you the opportunity to work with our leadership and experienced consulting management, where you can learn from them, challenge them and accelerate your hands-on experience, delivery capability and industry insights.
You’ll learn how we write compelling client propositions, structure and lead high-profile transformation, and gain hands-on exposure to leading technologies, often taking an idea from a concept to a vision, to strategy and then execution
We hold monthly showcases of our digital transformation initiatives, sharing knowledge and showing off how the power of technology is impacting our clients.
There are monthly team drinks, and it’s a chance to connect face-to-face with the wider team over a few drinks in the city. The monthly team breakfasts give you a different, more relaxed setting to meet up in the office on Fridays to hear from the leadership, meet colleagues and discuss the trends and insights within the market. Team away days are always a chance to connect with the team, have fun and learn something new – sometimes even pizza-making or shuffle boarding
