Product Architect

Vanderlande provides baggage handling systems for 600 airports around the globe, and that is only the airports market. All those systems generate data. Do you see a challenge in building data-driven services for our customers using that data? We are looking for a Product Architect to bring Vanderlande’s Market Leading Solutions to the next level with digital services. Do you have the conceptual thinking skills and IT affinity to outline a future-proof technical architecture for our digital ambitions? Do you like to work together in multidisciplinary teams realizing our digital services and embed them in our platform? Then join our Digital Service Factory team!


  • As Product Architect you are responsible for the technical realization of a digital service product. For now the focus is on topics as Condition Monitoring / Predictive Maintenance and Customer Portal. These products provide analytics in some shape or form using data from Vanderlande’s systems that run at our customer’s sites.  

  • You provide a logical breakdown into components and their composition into the larger whole (up to (digital) platform level), while ensuring that the product can support and survive change over time.  

  • You are the technical conscience for the development team and are able to lay down an architectural roadmap for them.  As such, you guide/coach the team in architectural choices, technical integrity and best practices.  

  • You have natural leadership skills able to oversee and coordinate an international and multidisciplinary development team. 

  • You realize a product that is able to keep up with a high rate of change by providing highly testable and deployable solutions that allow for repeated and reliable frequent releases. 

  • You align the architecture of your solution with the Solution Architect of the DSF (who oversees the different digital services) and other Software, Platform and Enterprise architects within Technology and Corporate IT to embed your solution into the Platforms to realize connected and observable systems. 

  • You align with the DSF service design lead, product owner and product manager on how your architectural roadmap aligns with business unit and technology roadmaps. 

  • You create relevant requirement, design, release and support documentation. 

  • You balance interest of standardized product and special project needs. 

  • You organize periodic technical explorations with the team to create awareness about and stay up-to-date with latest developments. 

Gevraagd wordt

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in IT or other relevant discipline 

  • 5-10 years of experience in SW development, of which at least 2-3 in an architecture role 

  • Experience in multiple of the following domains: analytics, Condition Monitoring / Predictive Maintenance, IoT, portals, API design 

  • Hands-on in Python and cloud architecture (we use MS Azure) and eager to (part-time) actively engage in the development activities in a coaching role 

  • Experience with developing and embedding digital services (ideally in large(r) organizations) with a multidisciplinary development team 

  • Ability to express the difference between an exploratory data science workflow and embedding analytics into a product and managing expectations of stakeholders in this context 

  • Good understanding of how to establish and scale Lean and Agile approaches/ delivery models 

  • Pro-active with strong coordination skills 

  • Staying up-to-date on the latest technological developments that apply to your domain 

  • Understanding the trade-offs between various architecture concerns (-ilities / non-functional requirements) and capable of making decisions on product level and communicating those decisions clearly 

  • Open source minded and vendor neutral 

  • Embracing Domain Driven Development (DDD) as it approaches software development as a human collaboration challenge: you create a safe learning environment and you are familiar with or at least enthusiastic about mob programming
