  • Proficiency in one or more programming languages: Java, Scala, Python or other. Advanced SQL knowledge is also strongly desirable

  • Experience modelling and transforming data from event collection to report curation, especially for ecommerce or affiliate businesses.
  • Experience building, designing, refactoring or optimising data lakes and data warehouses from a variety of data sources.
  • Experience in customer-facing roles, especially working side-by-side with analysts and engineers, is a plus.
  • Experience with Google Analytics, Segment, Data Build Tool (DBT), Fivetran, AirFlow, Tableau, Prometheus, and HashiCorp Vault are all pluses.
