What You Will Do

  • Go deep on data analysis, ensuring that we’re not satisfied with just ticking the box on the “happy path” defined by developers, but also that unexpected or irregular cases are probed and resolved - to go further than just what is articulated to what is desired (by the business)
  • Evangelise a culture of automation and repeatability across business intelligence projects, especially when it comes to testing ETL processes (e.g. data setup, asserting on loading results) and reports (asserting on results); but also generally for the way BI software is deployed

  • A quick mind, a willingness to learn, and a deep-seated curiosity
  • Familiarity with Microsoft technologies, especially Microsoft SQL Server, T-SQL, SSIS, and SSRS (current systems); but also interested in learning, along with the team as our data grows exponentially, about Big Data solutions (a few example of technologies we will be using: BigQuery, AirByte, DataFlow, ApacheBEAM, DBT)
  • Functional understanding of data warehouse design and dimension modeling (star schemas, snowflakes, etc)
  • Working knowledge of ETL processes
  • Familiarity with version control; exposure to continuous delivery and automated testing a plus
  • Experience or interest in results-driven, lean/agile environments
  • Ability to prioritize and execute tasks in a fast paced and demanding environment
  • Good communication skills
