jobs description

Driven by the passion to improve quality of people’s lives, WS Audiology continues to grow as market leader in the hearing aid industry. With our commitment to increase penetration in an underserved hearing care market, we want to accelerate our business transformation in order to reach more people, more effectively.

About the Team

We are dedicated to developing cutting-edge hearing-aid solutions within our embedded software (eSW) platform. Our relentless pursuit of innovation and extensive engineering expertise empowers us to recruit a dynamic Solution Architect to enrich our team. This presents a unique opportunity for a visionary thinker with deep roots in embedded development practices to steer our technical endeavors, ensuring they harmonize with our organizational objectives while upholding an exceptional standard of technical prowess aligned with business imperatives.

Role Overview

As a Solution Architect, you'll play a key role in deciding where our technology is headed... Through your understanding of e.g. battery powered, body worn devices, you'll help us make the most of our resource constrained eSW platform by strategically planning for future needs and making smart choices about how to invest our technical efforts. Maybe you know and use the Gartner TIME framework. You will work closely with eSW developers, requirements engineers, configuration managers and system engineers, making sure workstreams are aligned with the architecture so we avoid dead ends and arbitrate between standard solutions and in-house development. You will strategically evaluate platform development for future demands, drawing insights from stakeholders and product programs.

Key Responsibilities:
• Define the technical roadmap for the architecture, ensuring alignment with business goals and priorities.
• Assess and determine cross-functional considerations such as security measures and features impacting multiple modules.
• Collaborate with development teams ensuring adherence to architectural principles.
• Foster relationships across teams and departments, facilitating seamless communication and collaboration.
• Show your technical skills by explaining complex ideas clearly and getting your hands dirty when needed.
• With confidence explain the value and reasoning behind architectural choices to both technical and non-technical people.
• Support development teams to make their own choices while also knowing when to step in and guide them.
• Cultivate a culture of mutual respect, collaboration, and innovation within the organization.

• Proficient knowledge of embedded architectural solutions and eSW platforms.
• Existing experience in Medical Device or other regulated industries is advantageous.
• Proven ability to think holistically about architecture in relation to business goals and technical roadmaps.
• You care deeply about delivering working software as the primary proof of success, not just theoretical castles in the sky or endless documentation.
• Previous experience as a Solution Architect is advantageous.
• Bachelor's degree in computer science, Engineering, or related field; advanced degree preferred.

Personal competencies:
• Demonstrated ability to build and maintain relationships across teams and departments.
• High level of curiosity and willingness to actively seek knowledge and apply it effectively.
• Expertise in communicating complex technical concepts with precision, ensuring clarity and focus on core issues.
• Communicate clearly and concisely, focusing on the most important details.
• Active listener and making sure you understand what people are asking for.

Application Process: Interested candidates should submit their resume along with a cover letter detailing their relevant experience and addressing the provided questions. In your cover letter, please include examples of how you have conducted reality checks on technical applicability, prioritized architectural elements, and made architectural decisions. We look forward to hearing from you!

Note: The interview process will include questions aimed at assessing the candidate's ability to effectively communicate, collaborate, and make architectural decisions in alignment with business goals.
