  • Review and validate logical and physical design to ensure alignment with the defined solution architecture

  • Evaluate, determine root cause and resolve critical issues

  • Work closely with other IT/development groups to deliver coordinated software solutions

Minimum Qualifications

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or a related discipline, with 4+ years related information systems experience in data engineering, data modeling, automation, and analytics

  • Deep understanding of data engineering concepts, database designs, associated tools, system components, internal processes, and architecture

  • Excellent spoken and written communication as well as receptive listening skills, with the ability to present complex ideas in a clear, concise fashion to both technical and non-technical audiences

  • Proficiency with SQL, Bash, and Python scripting

  • Team-first mentality; excellent interpersonal skills in order to build strong relationships that will be critical for success in this role

  • Must be able to proactively communicate status and identify risks

  • Self-starter, highly motivated, able to shift directions quickly when priorities change, the ability to think through problems to come up with innovative solutions, and deliver against tight deadlines

  • Must be results-oriented and able to move forward without complete information and with minimal supervision

  • Prior experience in AWS or other cloud-based analytics is a plus

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with data visualization tools (ex. Einstein Analytics, Tableau, Domo, Birst)

  • Experience with ETL technologies (Mulesoft, Jitterbit, Informatica, etc.)

  • Experience with HR technologies (HCM, ATS, etc.) and HR Analytics
