The Embedded Data Engineer role is new to Indeed, so you will be responsible for helping to define the specific responsibilities and deliverables for this role and for directing Embedded Data Engineers on how to be successful in this role.

to see the impact of your work making a difference every day. You

understand how to use data to make decisions. You have a passion for

producing the highest quality code as well as leading others to do the
