Description & Qualifications
Your main role, as part of the Architecture Governance team, will be to work closely across the community of product architects to document architectures and administer the architecture model repository containing UKG’s product suite architectures, which follow our fit-for-purpose framework and modeling standards. The architect modeling role will involve hands-on model creation of application, business, data, and technology views in a tool (yet to be procured, meanwhile entails administration of draw.io diagrams on Confluence), and is also responsible for many tool administration processes, such as model reviews that ensure the quality of models and reusable objects. A large part of this role is also mentoring the architecture community, which overall has very little experience diagramming to standards or using a modeling tool, and therefore may not see the power and value of a maintained architecture repository that contains multiple viewpoints for each version of each product.
This job has a counterpart employee in India who started Oct 2021. Together, you will share administrator and modeling tasks, will both have opportunities to provide input into UKG’s architecture modeling standards, and your combined time zones will help ensure that all product and Engineering architects have access to modeling-related mentoring and assistance.
There are many soft skills essential to this job, as you’ll need to interact with architects and other SMEs across the community. Required skills include the ability to host effective meetings, have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and have a high level of emotional intelligence.
Note that while this job requires a heavy up-front effort for modeling, after some time, the tool and processes will become routine and largely in maintenance mode. At this point, there will be opportunities to get involved in some of the other work happening in Architecture Governance. The team has also just begun being involved in business process modeling in BPMN, so have experience with this type of modeling is advantageous and preferred.
Initial Job Responsibilities:
• Collect data and be a major contributor of building models
• Administer the Architecture Modeling Tool (TBD) and its data repository, including:
o Maintaining the objects that need to be separate and those that need to be reused
o Version control of objects and models per product release
o Identify the right people for the different types of licenses within the tools
o Ensure model authors are reusing objects versus creating their own
o Ensure there are no incorrect objects or models within the tool
• Review architecture models to ensure standards are met.
• Work with Architecture Governance leadership and your colleague to:
o Develop and roll out education to teams and drive alignment to standardized practices
o Provide thought leadership in the creation of new standards, and coordinate communication of new/updated the standards to the community of architects
• Generate inputs to the reporting of architecture governance metrics.
• Bachelors or Masters degree in Information Technology, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, or related studies and two years of experience in modeling systems – OR – 3+ years in system or software engineering and 2+ years in architecture modeling
• Some prior experience and knowledge with Cloud environments
• Demonstrated experience in model creation for system or application architectures
• Demonstrated experience modeling to an industry standard (e.g., DoDAF, TOGAF, BPMN)
• Experience with an enterprise architecture (EA) modeling tool
• Attention to detail as applicable to modeling, modeling reviews, and standards enforcement
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills
• Ability to work well in a team
• Ability to work in the East Coast time zone
