The Maritime Deployed Team monitors, manages and improves technology solutions that are compatible with the core defence infrastructure, compute platforms and applications while being tailored for the unique challenges of the maritime environment.
The team provides a common user experience across all security domains for all of the RNZN’s fleet and maritime domain expertise within CIS Branch, ensuring that the challenges of providing connectivity at sea are factored into product decision making across the branch.
As a Solution Designer, you will be responsible for the technical detailed design for Maritime Deployed, and maintaining your understanding of the current state to inform future design cycles and enable continuous improvement, as articulated by blueprints and roadmaps.
You will provide design oversight to implementation teams, and understand user and functional requirements to design new solutions that meet customer needs.
You will also appreciate and be able to articulate the non-technology aspects of proposed solutions in order to provide the complete picture to decision makers.
You will work closely with the Domain Architect, Product Designer and members of your own team, and other teams, to deliver solutions that comply with the Domain Architecture and High Level Design (HLD) of the applicable product(s).
These solutions will be ready for execution through development / prototyping. As your solutions will be implemented onto RNZN ships, you will also design collaboratively with RNZN personnel and their industry partner Babcock.
