  • Comfortable with working with Linux
  • Strong SQL knowledge (HiveSQL and SparkSQL is a plus)
  • Strong knowledge in data modeling
  • Experience in data visualization (Power BI, Tableau or AWS QuickSight, JavaScript visualization frameworks)
  • Excellent understanding of software development life cycle and/or agile development environment with emphasis on BI and data project practices
  • Leadership experience in driving teams, capable of working directly with the client and in an inter-vendor environment
  • Excellent communication skills, able to drive discussions with the customer regarding trade-offs, best practices and technical issues
  • Bachelor's degree
  • Flexibility in work shifts

What will make you thrive in this role:

  • Strong curiosity, problem-solving and problem-finding skills
  • Dedication to continuous learning
  • Analytical and critical thinking
  • Strong sense of ownership and accountability
  • Team orientation
  • Strong communication skills in English and Filipino

What's a plus, but not mandatory

  • Orchestration experience (i.e. Apache Airflow, AWS Step Functions)
  • Experience with big data technologies (ex: Flink, the Hadoop ecosystem)
  • Experience with streaming data technologies
  • Experience in supporting data science projects' data requirements (data imputation, data quality assessment, normalization, etc.)
  • Experience with different data formats typically used in big data environments and analytics (Parquet, ORC, etc.)
  • Coding proficiency in Node JS
  • This is a client-facing role
