  • Work the data.  Create processes to load, transform, and deliver data to business users, end-customers, 3rd party vendors, and application developers.

  • See the data. Build reports, analytics and visualizations to help meet business initiatives and make decisions.

  • Make us better. Identify, advocate for, and implement solutions to improve performance and efficiencies across systems, APIs, and overnight batch processing. Develop quality code that is maintainable and avoids problems. Promote a culture for effective documentation and lessons learned.

  • Be a great team member. Work as a member of an agile software development team to rapidly produce software. Balance both project-based and day-to-day support tasks.

  • Show off your work. Embrace transparency and share metrics around our levels of service with the rest of the company and our customers.
