Brief description

Within the multicultural solution architecture team, you are a key contributor in defining the evolution and integration of the digital applications at CMA CGM, our most agile development initiatives as well as e-commerce projects.

As an architect for digital subjects, you can design and ensure delivery of highly secure, resilient, scalable and deliverable software architecture solutions. To do so you leverage your expertise in modern application integration using mostly web services and REST API, your knowledge of the latest development languages such as JavaScript, Java and .NET, as well as the latest deployment technologies like Node.js, containers (particularly Kubernetes). In line with the company’s strategy about the cloud, you have experience deploying solutions in production on cloud platforms such as AWS and Azure. The architecture solutions you define are very secure, ensuring state-of-the-art user provisioning, authentication and authorization, as well as data protection during transport and at rest, in compliance with the GDPR and NIS directives.

Eager to test the latest technological innovations, you keep yourself aware of technological trends and you have already worked on mobile applications, blockchain and IoT projects in the past.

You’re a leader who can communicate your architecture decision clearly including explaining the solutions to the subject matter experts (SMEs) and providing support to the project teams directly when needed. You’re a team player who can collaborate with the operation and integration teams to make sure that your solutions can be properly deployed and operated in an industrialized way.
