About SIE and Data Strategy & Operations (DSO)

With over 120 Million customers in 109 countries, Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) is committed to using data to understand The Players: our customers, better than anyone else. Using the amazing networked power of PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4 and our other PlayStation systems we learn how they use them for gaming, and also how they use the networked services like streamed games, music, video, and how they pay, and how we can improve their customer experience. We work with games developers, marketing, R&D, PlayStation®Store, and many other parts of Sony to constantly improve our customer experience and maximize our business potential!

The DSO team has grown rapidly over recent years in response to a growing need for the business to leverage data to advise and shape key decisions, and to identify new opportunities. Currently there are ~130 staff within the team, split between London and California. The team is made up of high quality business insights and data professionals covering the disciplines of product management, architecture, data engineering, data warehousing, cloud infrastructure/platforms, insights reporting, operations, service management, data science, machine learning, scrum masters and project management.

What you’ll be doing

Solution Architecture: Manage & deliver the solution architecture on assigned projects, clearly capturing the impact on the DSO platform, services & teams. Ensuring the solution is the best fit for the business needs across business process, support, time and cost dimensions.

Architectural Deliverables: Deliver high quality architectural artefacts which clearly explain the solution, key decisions and rationale behind them. Make sure that all artefacts are approachable, useable and socialised with the target stakeholders (external & internal to DSO). The deliverables should aim to aid a smooth transition of the solution from the architecture team to the engineering teams for estimation implementation.

Architecture Governance: Develop, maintain, and socialise the architecture standards, patterns, and policies across the DSO department on assigned projects. Drive their adoption across the DSO department and the wider SIE (where applicable).
