What your day looks like as a Data Platform Architect at Digital Power Depending on your ambition and available assignments, there are two possible day structures: Long-term Data Platform Architect role at a large client As a Data Platform Architect at a large client, your day begins with a stand-up meeting with the project team. Here, you discuss progress, challenges, and priorities for the day. After the stand-up, you dive into an in-depth analysis of the current architecture to identify potential optimizations. You have a meeting with the client's IT manager to discuss the proposed changes and ensure alignment with the organization's strategic goals. Then you work on a detailed design for a new microservices architecture, using the latest technologies and best practices. In the afternoon, you guide a team of developers in implementing a new part of the architecture. You provide advice and help solve technical issues. Later, you meet with the security team to ensure that the new architecture complies with all security standards and regulations.

An analytics engineer and data engineer at this client are setting up a new data warehouse based on your proposal. This report contains concrete steps and recommendations to improve their IT infrastructure. You also advise and guide these colleagues in the next steps. Both options offer a lot of variety and challenge, where you are constantly working on creating valuable solutions for various clients.
