We're BDO. An accountancy and business advisory firm, providing the advice and solutions entrepreneurial organisations need to navigate today's changing world.

We work with the companies that are Britain's economic engine - ambitious, entrepreneurially-spirited and high-growth businesses that fuel the economy - and directly advise the owners and management teams that lead them.

We'll broaden your horizons

To ensure our services and applications are fit for the modern market, our IT team collaborates with every department. They develop, they explore and they implement the new ideas helping us to change the future of accounting, tax and business consulting. But, just as importantly, they maintain the tech that keeps us advancing. By testing and adopting the future of financial technical solutions, they find new and exciting ways to drive us forward. And you could too. In an IT role at BDO, you'll become part of a team that act as the backbone for our business. No matter who you are or what your skillset is, we'll give you the training and support you need to achieve whatever you put your mind to.

We'll help you succeed

Leading organisations trust us because of the quality of our advice. That quality grows from a thorough understanding of their business, and that understanding comes from working closely with them and building long-lasting relationships.

You'll be someone who is both comfortable working proactively and managing your own tasks, as well as confident collaborating with others and communicating regularly with senior managers, directors, and BDO's partners to help businesses effectively.

  • Work with security, governance and product teams to implement security best practices and ensure regulatory compliance within applications.
  • Document all application architecture design and analysis work.
  • Ensure technology and delivery approaches are aligned between delivery teams and with the overall IT and Architecture strategies.
  • Represent BDO UK, Stream and IT interests when working with the BDO Network and 3rd party suppliers.
  • Identify the organisational impact (for example, on skills, processes, structures or culture) and financial impact of the application architecture.
  • Ensure that IT Architecture is, and is recognised as, a valuable asset to BDO.
You'll be someone with:
  • Proven experience of working as an Application Architect delivering successful greenfield and migration projects in a product orientated organisation.
  • Experience in designing and deploying products utilising Azure PaaS resources.

  • Proficient in designing, building and deploying application services at a complex level.
