Personal Attributes

  • Proficient in English — both verbal & written;
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to effectively interact with non-technical users;

What impact you will make

  • Work with the product team to identify and build scalable data pipelines for consumption by downstream clients;
  • Work with end users to optimize their SQL queries and gather feedback on existing data models for either improvements or new procedures;
  • Build and maintain automation for various user management, data lineage and compliance needs;
  • Build and maintain data cleansing and any associated master data;
  • Create monitoring and KPIs for data pipelines;
  • Identify, analyze, and resolve discrepancies to ensure data integrity;
