  • Advanced working SQL knowledge and experience working with relational databases, query authoring (SQL) as well as working familiarity with a variety of databases.
  • Experience building processes supporting data transformation, data structures, metadata, dependency, and workload management.
  • Experience with object-oriented/object function scripting languages: Python, Java, C++, Scala, etc.
  • Experience with leading BI tools (e.g., Qlik, Data Studio, Looker, Tableau)
  • You are creative, flexible, eager to learn, and able to work productively in a multi-project, deadline-driven environment.
  • Strong project management and organizational skills.
  • Employment is contingent on passing a pre-employment, post-offer background check.
