Syensqo is all about chemistry. We’re not just referring to chemical reactions here, but also to the magic that occurs when the brightest minds get to work together. This is where our true strength lies. In you. In your future colleagues and in all your differences. And of course, in your ideas to improve lives while preserving our planet’s beauty for the generations to come.

The domain architect for integration is a strategic technology leader responsible for shaping and driving Syensqo’s overall digital integration architecture strategy. This role plays a crucial role in Syensqo's IT ecosystem, chiefly responsible for developing and guiding the architectural framework for integration across various systems and applications, both internal and external. The role ensures that all integration solutions fit within Syensqo's broader IT and business strategy creating a modern decoupled integration architecture that allows for agility in connecting and changing our systems, a robust well managed secure flow of information and cost effective delivery.

 

Syensqo has become a new and independent company after the demerger of Solvay in December 2023. For next two years Syensqo will rely on Solvay through Transitional Service (TSA)  agreements for the majority of its IT services. During this period Syensqo will have to build out its own independent IT landscape and organization. The separation is primarily done through a ”clone & clean” approach with some transformation for Network, security and workplace. The new organization will be built with focus on efficiency and agile value delivery to support the growth, innovation and customer obsession of Syensqo. Substantial work, in parallel to the separation work, will start to prepare and execute on the modernization and transformation of the IT landscape. This will require a full revision and modernisation of the enterprise architecture, e.g. including starting up the program to move to SAP S/4HANA, the creation of a lakehouse / data fabric infrastructure to seize the opportunities of our vast amounts of data and information, build a modern decoupled integration architecture, optimize the R&I digital landscape, integrating AI capabilities in our solutions,  etc.
