Sounds a bit like you are looking for an “architect” role if I’m understanding you right if you want to stay within IT. I know KPMG has some of those roles so I don’t doubt any of the other big4 has them.

The best architects that I know all came from engineer / build backgrounds and most still actually do some building (at home in their labs). Can you find architect roles...but unless you stay technical it will be hard to get them
