  • Automate the testing of our data models and monitor their quality
  • Provide technical leadership on data solutions that are forward looking
  • Work with the team to continuously improve our data pipeline
  • Adopt software engineering best practices, such as version control and design patterns and teach others to adopt these best practices;
  • Help to define and improve our internal standards for style, maintainability, and best practices for a high-scale data infrastructure

What you’ll be bringing to the team:

  • Proficient skills with SQL;
  • Strong knowledge of Python in a data analysis context;
  • Ability to break down complex projects into smaller stories to help other team members & themselves deliver
  • Experience with MPP data warehouse (we use BigQuery)
  • Experience in performing data profiling, data mapping, and data quality validation.
  • Experience with data orchestrator (we use cloud composer)
  • A good understanding of industry-standard design patterns for data warehouse data models
  • Experience with cloud environments (in particular GCP) as well as containerization solutions as a user
  • Experience with source control using Git or equivalent, CI/CD pipelining, and writing automated unit and functional tests
  • A security mindset - should be able to understand compliances (GDPR, SOX, ...)
  • Excellent communication skills
