About the department
Digital Health IT works in close collaboration with the Digital Health business unit as well as external partners to bring innovative digital solutions to patients globally, living with diabetes and other chronic diseases.

Digital Health IT is responsible for the IT part of delivering Apps that are directly used by patients as well as the backend services and systems that supports these. The Apps are used for medical purposes and will likely be integrated with connected medical devices such as connected insulin injection pens and connected glucose monitoring devices. Known as “Software as a Medical Device”, these Apps are highly regulated and have strict quality requirements to ensure patient safety.

To succeed with this endeavour, Digital Health IT employs a total of 26 fulltime internal and external colleagues with various backgrounds such as Project Managers, Compliance & Quality experts, Digital Solution Architects, System Managers/DevOps and we have established close relations with 3rd party suppliers and developers, that are accustomed to deliver highly innovative products in this regulated environment.

The department is fairly new and is anchored within Digital Innovation in Global IT. As the name implies, we are continuously moving into new areas, where new and innovative competencies, solutions and perspectives are needed. The Department and colleagues are full of drive and are highly flexible and adaptive in an environment where changes, updates and releases are part of every day.

The position

As a Digital Solution Architect, you will act as trusted advisor to provide technical expertise and guidance for all the components that makes up the eco-system of digital solutions. This eco-system consists of the front-end components that are in the hand of patients, including connected medical devices, smartphones, Apps and websites. You will also provide technical guidance to the architecture of the backend cloud based systems and the integration of these.

To succeed in this position, you should have solid technical experience and a sincere interest in new technologies. In addition to this you are expected to understand the technologies involved in each of the components that makes up a digital solution, and you know how these are integrated.

In the role as Digital Solution Architect, you will act as technical lead on one or more projects within Digital Health IT and fulfill the role as trusted technology advisor to the Project Manager and the Project Team. In collaboration with 3rd party suppliers and the Lead Architect in Digital Health IT, you will be directly responsible for leading and defining the end-to-end architecture of the digital solution, and you will be involved in the evolution of the digital solution, from initial ideation to specifications and design. As these digital solutions will evolve over time, you will also provide technical guidance for the continuous development of features and functionalities.

You have a master’s degree in relevant field and hands-on experience working with contemporary technologies. You have experience working with mobile apps and cloud native architectures, experience in at least one modern programming/scripting language (Python, C#, Go, JavaScript etc.), and experience in DevOps tools and paradigm (Infrastructure as Code, automated tests, CI/CD, instrumentation). Ideally you also have working experience in scaling out mobile/web apps globally using cloud native architectures.

Perhaps you have a background within software development, and in recent years you have moved into a principal technical role or been the lead solution architect in projects delivering digital solutions. You are used to being in a position, where the ability to have the helicopter overview while at the same time digging into details is a must in order to provide the best possible technical advice. Furthermore, you have experience working within a regulated industry or you are eager to learn what that entails as complexity is a motivating factor for you.

You have a ‘can do’ mind-set required to try out new setups and solutions. You are known for your ability to understand complex technical matters, form an educated opinion and communicate these in a simple way to your stakeholders, so they can reach informed decisions based on your input. You can convince others to accept new concepts, practices and approaches and are excellent in communicating and handling stakeholders at all levels of the organisation, in different geographies and across cultures.

While your technical competences are important, you understand when it is needed to interchange between going very deep into a specific domain to inform yourself, and then zoom out and bring your learnings into defining the bigger picture. You are not expected to be an expert in everything, but you are curious by nature and enjoy accumulating knowledge, even in domain areas that are not technical in nature, as you understand that this helps you being the best Digital Solution Architect and trusted advisor possible. You may not know what HBA1C, Interstitial Fluid or UUID is right now, and what role these have in defining a digital solution architecture in this domain, but you are super eager to learn.

To succeed, it is crucial that you thrive with working in teams where you can inspire and motivate your stakeholders to take informed decisions. In addition, you must have strong work ethic and willingness to take responsibility to bring the best possible digital solutions to the market. You understand and value that you play an important part in making lives easier for people with diabetes and other chronic diseases. Since you will be working globally you must expect some meetings to take place outside DK and working hours and to have some travel activity. Fluency in English (Oral and written) is a prerequisite.
