What does an Enterprise Architect at Coolblue do?

As an Enterprise Architect Back Office, or as we like to call it: Back Office Engineering Boss, you are responsible for our software architecture and landscape of the Back Office area. Including strategic planning and execution. The Back Office area entails any software that is used by our employees or an (operational) process to support the day-to-day running of our business. This includes our purchasing, warehouse, delivery and installations, returns, finance, hr and energy contracts teams.

If you are more interested in Customer Facing architecture, please have a look at the Enterprise Architect Customer Facing vacancy.

Based on our strategic business goals, you define the most suitable Back Office Engineering architecture. You will ensure that our 40+ Back Office Development teams use technology, programming languages, principles, blueprints and guidelines that enable scalability, increase speed of delivery or reduce maintenance costs. In addition, you are able to communicate clearly about this at various levels. From proposing to management about yearly goals or promising new technology, to evangelizing principles, blueprints and guidelines to our entire development population. This way you ensure these are successfully implemented in each of our 300+ daily software releases.

Furthermore, you initiate, organize and supervise implementation of new (strategic) software engineering technologies and projects like our own Delivery Hero app or a new Warehouse Management System. You utilize the knowledge of the full Development community and support bottom-up initiatives. And more importantly, you get these initiatives done. You challenge Principal Developers on their architectural choices and contribution to the Development teams and ensure that these align with your Engineering goals and the business needs.

As Enterprise Architect, you are part of the Software Engineering Board, which steers and decides upon domain overarching Software Engineering projects, like geographical expansion to Germany. In the board you represent Back Office Engineering, by creating proposals for new initiatives, reporting on the planning and performance of your area. You'll bring your expertise to the table on overarching topics.

Meer weten?

  • Hoe gaat Coolblue om met werken op kantoor?

    Bij Coolblue werken we hybride: dat betekent deels vanuit kantoor werken en deels vanuit huis.

  • Kan ik me blijven ontwikkelen?

    Studiefabriek: leren bij Coolblue, net een beetje anders.

    Met meer dan 30 trainingen in onze eigen Studiefabriek kun je elke dag een beetje beter worden. Bij Coolblue gaan we soms terug de schoolbanken in. Maar niet door stil te zitten en alleen te luisteren. De trainingen die je bij ons volgt zijn niet saai, maar juist actief door zelf te oefenen en met elkaar te overleggen en discussiëren. In de Studiefabriek van Coolblue kiezen we wat we willen leren, zodat we onszelf blijven ontwikkelen en een échte specialist worden. Zo heeft een Bezorger andere trainingen nodig dan een Klantenservice Medewerker, en volgt een starter bij Coolblue andere trainingen dan een leidinggevende.
