Some Challenges You’ll Tackle

  • Thread business requirements through our state-of-the-art data and tech stacks. We’re talking infinitely scalable microservices backed by a robust big-data engine
  • As an early member of the Decision Data team you’ll have lots of influence on our patterns and practices as the team grows and evolves
  • Take a problem, break it down, find commonalities that will enable wins cross business units
  • Collaborate with the right people to define and refine scope and priorities
  • Doing deep dives on business verticals where you become one of the foremost experts on that vertical in the company
  • Analyze data to measure impacts of data schemas and use it to iterate on improvements
  • Translate from technical to business, and vice versa. You need to be able to speak with the least technically-minded client (internal or external) and make technology make sense to them. Then turn around and do it the other way

You Should Have

  • 5-7 years of experience with business/data analysis, project management, data warehousing and/or software/data engineering
  • A bachelor's degree, preferably in a computer-related discipline
  • SQL Skills; you’ll need to be able to weave data into shapes that are easy to dig into and find answers
  • Experience in data warehousing, big data tools (Spark/Hive) or data governance a plus
  • Excellent communication skills, including the ability to crystallize and broadly socialize insights
  • Problem analysis and problem-solving skills
  • Proficiency in working with and solving for our business stakeholders
  • Rigorous attention to detail and accuracy
  • Adaptability and collaborative skills
  • Enthusiasm for the job. Are you excited about data? Do you love your users? Good, the same goes for us
