What you’ll be doing:

  • Work as part of the Data Engineering team to uphold and evolve common standards and collaborate to ensure that our data solutions are complimentary and not duplicative.
  • Build and maintain robust automated pipelines to support data solutions across BI and analytics use cases.
  • Collaborate with other technology teams to ingest, transform and load data from multiple data sources, structured and un-structured data.
  • Work closely with data scientists and data analysts to implement and productionize data models.

What we’ll give you:
