Technical Architect - Flanders Digital

At customer site, Antwerpen, Gent, Hasselt, Leuven
Architecture, Software & Analysis

Within our Applications software department, we have a division that specifically handles projects for the Flemish Government. Cegeka's Flanders Digital wants to ensure, in partnership with the Flemish Government, that Flanders grows into the European top 5 most digitized regions. Cegeka is the Flemish Government's strategic IT partner in this.  In this way we are putting our shoulders to the further digitalization of Flanders in the field of digital workplaces and building applications that have an impact on 6.6 million Flemish people, like you and me. Think, for example, of the Growth Package, through which 960 .000 Flemish families automatically receive the correct allowances and benefits. Or the Flemish Enforcement Platform for the Justice and Enforcement Agency, which centralizes all information on administrative enforcement from the various inspection services in Flanders. With Persona, the Education Agency is adopting a new application to manage personnel data.  In addition, we have numerous other projects. For one of our largest clients in Brussels we are looking for a Technical Architect, to put it in Flemish, with goesting!  Do you want to help build a digital Flanders?

  • Together with the functional application architect, you will describe the various APIs required by the application, with which components they integrate and what the chosen integration technology is. You describe this for example in swaggerhub or another tool that supports the chosen technology.
  • You will describe and maintain a technical data application architecture based on the functional and non-functional requirements, taking into account the reference architecture.
