Humana is seeking a Domain Architect that will be responsible for the internal architecture design of a domain (collection of applications or area of expertise), with a focus on the services delivered by that domain, and for the design of the interfaces through which that domain interacts with the rest of the enterprise. This person “curates” the domain’s portfolio of services and applications, and is responsible for effective architectures using enterprise standards. The Domain Architect is also responsible for the effective integration of their domain into the broader business and IT ecosystem within which it will operate. The Domain Architect is not only called to understand and follow enterprise guidelines and design patterns in their work; they are also expected to share feedback and learning back out to the enterprise. Thus, the Domain Architect also serves as the SME for their domain to other architects, and as a feedback loop back into the enterprise architecture portfolio.

  • Ensure solutions are aligned with the enterprise reference architecture standards, patterns, principles, and guides.
  • Define domain architectural and technical standards.
  • Work with third-party solutions that affect the domain, including selection of technology (being sure it aligns with enterprise architecture).
  • Treat the services within their domain as a portfolio of business assets.
  • Review candidate services, and perform design-time governance on their domain’s services.
  • Provide oversight to ensure implementations are consistent with defined architecture as well as consistent with business needs.
  • Participate in the architecture design of the applications or technologies within the domain.
  • Within their domain, recommend technologies that will increase cost effectiveness, user experience, and flexibility.
  • Create and maintain domain architecture deliverables.
