  • Experience with cloud-based data infrastructures (Ideally GCP, but AWS or Azure would also suffice)
  • Programming experience in Javascript, Python, or similar.
  • Expertise in managing databases, including performance tuning, backup, and recovery.
  • Solid knowledge of data quality management best practices, including data profiling, data cleansing, and data validation
  • Knowledge of strengths and limitations of visualization tools (e.g. PowerBI, Tableau, Looker, etc.) in terms of data modeling in the visualization tools.
  • Understanding of versioning control tools like GitHub to changes related to dbt models and transformations, ensuring that changes are tracked, documented, and reviewed by the appropriate stakeholders.
  • Knowledge of applying data governance principles, policies, and practices that ensure data accuracy, consistency, and security
  • Knowledge of Kubernetes would be an advantage

Personal skills:

  • Strong desire to contribute towards keeping data tidy and well-organized
