Start a career at B&CE...

Are you a API Specialist looking for a rewarding career in a thriving organisation where people come first?

B&CE has been providing employee benefits for over 70 years. We began in 1942 by creating simple financial products that meet people’s needs, and that’s how we’ve run our business ever since.

We provide simple, good value products and services and our first class support and customer service has won awards.

We go that extra mile to ensure we are.

  • Creating Simplicity
  • Showing Compassion
  • Keeping Promises

Our people are our strength. Finding ways to value and reward them is important to us. And if you’re keen to learn, develop your career and do great things – you’re looking in the right place.

In a word

We’re looking for a seasoned API Solution Architect with relationship management skills and a solid systems integration background to join our busy Business Development and technical teams in our Crawley office. You’ll be accountable for the day-to-day editorial control of IT API Integrations, initially with software providers. You’ll also be responsible for the production of blueprints which define the end state architecture, current state and the transition roadmaps for our clients.

Practically speaking

Reporting to the Head of Business Development, you’ll be responsible for:

  • Engaging and leading discussions including product selection and solution design.
  • Working under broad direction in challenging and unpredictable environments, playing a key role in influencing strategic decision making and understand strategic consequences of IT decisions.
  • Focused approach on strategic alignment of technical design and architecture to meet business growth and direction.
  • Influencing, building and maintaining strong working relationships with stakeholders at a senior level to achieve successful outcomes for the business.
  • Employ key account principals in examining and understand the new customer organisation’s structure, politics and key drivers.

If you're right for this role

You’ll enjoy working within a solutions-driven, people-focused organisation.

You’ll have a can-do attitude and work well both independently and as part of a team and be aligned with our
values of Creating Simplicity, Keeping Promises and Showing Compassion.

  • Previous IT experience in solutions or enterprise architecture roles with a focus on designing and implementing Integration Solutions that leverage Enterprise Service Bus technologies or Service Orientated Architecture Gateways.
  • Demonstrable experience of API management, restful and SOAP API’s along with service enterprise and service bus technologies.
  • Demonstrable experience in account management

The perks

Our people are our strength so finding ways to value and reward them is important to us. That’s why we offer an award-winning pension – it’s what we’re good at – plus health care cover, an onsite gym, access to a personal trainer… even the odd massage. And if they’re feeling peckish after all that activity, they can always refuel in our subsidised restaurant or grab some fruit – we get a big delivery every week. Discover more of B&CE’s employee benefits including our training programme, which is designed to give our people the support they need to develop a fulfilling career.
