This is a hands-on job for someone who wants to solve important business problems that depend on "big data".  The job requires both serious technical chops and effective communication skills.  Sometimes you will build the solution yourself, and sometimes you will be coordinating the efforts of others, but at all times you will be expected to think creatively about solving the business problem. What you will bring to the team: Solid RDBMS operational knowledge with outstanding SQL skills Ability to transform raw, noisy log level data into useful business fact tables Solid database design skills Computer Science expertise - algorithms, data structures, software engineering Experience building data workflows and platforms, familiarity with leading libraries Ability to understand and communicate business needs Ability to come up to speed quickly in order to understand and coordinate the work of domain experts - in particular the ability to work effectively with the Machine Learning team.
