As a Senior Programmer Analyst, you will...
- Collaborate closely with cross-functional teams to assess source systems, identify foundational data sources, determine transformation needs, create appropriate data models, and document the design and specifications
- Develop systems and datasets by applying software engineering best practices, fundamental data management principles, contemporary distributed systems
- Create, maintain, and optimize data pipelines for ingesting, transforming, and loading data from various sources into data storage systems
- Identify and resolve performance bottlenecks in data pipelines, databases, and related systems
- Demonstrate passion for quality and productivity by use of efficient development techniques, standards and guidelines
- Produce technical documentation to support data delivery development
