Are you a Data Engineer that loves working with very large data sets? Are you skilled in using SQL, Hive, or Python to integrate large data sets into meaningful assets that can be used by the business for analytics?  If you answered yes to any of the questions above, please read on!

A client of ours, Business Intelligence team needs Data Engineers to help us architect and build robust data solutions that can be used by the Data Science & Analytics teams, as well as, analysts throughout the business. The role requires you to collaborate with both technical and non-technical folks so, unfortunately you won’t be able to speak techie all the time.  However, you will be involved in a variety of projects allowing you to grow your knowledge and skills beyond what you thought was possible.

We spend a lot of time and effort architecting, building, and automating our solutions so, hopefully it’s no surprise that we take data quality very seriously!  We’ll ask you to use your Jedi engineering skills on data quality efforts from time to time. It’s fun and a great way to learn our data! 


•  Transforming large, complex data into business assets that serve both the Enterprise Business Intelligence team and analysts throughout the organization

•  Ensure our data assets meet our data quality standards.  It’s important!

•  Have fun in a fast paced energetic environment 


•  5+ years of relevant employment experience

•  Teradata experience preferred. We’re looking for power users not administrators

•  Strong SQL, we mean REALLY strong.  We want you to be excited about SQL scripts that are hundreds of lines

•  Experience transforming large datasets into consumable assets for self-service analytics and reporting

•  Experience designing, implementing and supporting Data Marts

•  Must be familiar with Linux systems, including basic shell scripting

•  Design, develop, and maintain data aggregation, summarization jobs (i.e. automation)
