What you'll do

As a Principal Technical Consultant, you will possess excellent domain knowledge and will assume project responsibility for the technical configuration of Aptitude Software (‘Aptitude’) products and take ownership of components in the solution design. Critical to the success of your role will be your excellent client communication and management skills.

The role requires that your decision-making process considers risk and the commercial relationships between Aptitude and its clients, consistently striving to deliver value to all parties. You may be required to run workshops in the Scope & Analysis phases to help develop a shared vision of the end-state solution with clients.

You will liaise with Aptitude’s product development teams to inform them when clients’ requirements cannot be met by the product and work to close those gaps.

As a Principal Consultant you will help to establish best practices to be followed by your team to ensure that our delivery is fit for purpose. You will actively engage with other project teams to share knowledge, best practices and lessons learned.

You will be expected to further your own professional development (keeping yourself updated with relevant knowledge and skills) and mentor other consultants. You will contribute to the evolving company culture and always ensure that you are motivating the teams, celebrating milestones and ensuring that you contribute towards internal communications, taking your stories and successes out to the wider Aptitude community.

As our clients are based across North America, there will be a need to be flexible in supporting clients remotely in different time zones and you will be expected to undertake some travel for client projects in future.

What we're looking for

Our ideal candidate will have the following skills & experience:


  • Ability to communicate in a concise and timely manner with stakeholder groups to ensure that critical information is conveyed at an appropriate level of detail.
  • Able to take responsibility for streams of work within the project; liaising with clients and leading other consultants.
  • Can instigate development activities that implement best practice and prescribed design patterns.
  • Can provide mentoring and knowledge transfer to client technical development and/or production support staff to facilitate handover.


  • Able to demonstrate a detailed understanding of ETL and RDBMS concepts and a deep knowledge of the fundamentals of developing database-centric applications.
  • Be capable of leading the database design activity.
  • Can implement CI/CT processes to help ensure high-quality deliverables.
  • Be knowledgeable about performance related matters and factor these into the solution design.
  • Ability to manage and coach the implementation team to deliver to the required quality and time frames.
  • Able to conduct detailed technical, (design and/or development) reviews as and when required.
