External Description:

Senior Data Engineer (m/f/d)

Role Description

Data Engineers define the architecture and design of data ingestion and ETL / ELT processing to meet functional and non-functional requirements and objectives. They are broadly aligned with the Data Acquisition & Integration sub-practice. Data Engineers will generally be expected to be “T-shaped” professionals who have a broad understanding of the data acquisition and integration space and to be able to weigh the pros and cons of different architectures and approaches.

Key Areas of Responsibility

  • Clarify the client’s business problem for data analysis.
  • Participate in requirements and design workshops with our clients.
  • Translate the business requirements into technical requirements.
  • Design and develop code, scripts, and data pipelines that leverage structured and unstructured data.
  • Develop project deliverable documentation
  • Must be adept at sizing and estimating new projects, as well as supporting new business development
  • All consultants are expected to build value in themselves. Teradata’s extensive library of both instructor led and web based training provides ample opportunity for the consultant to build and maintain marketable skills. Time has been allocated specifically for this task and each consultant is expected to have a ‘Learning Plan’. Progress against the learning plan is part of the annual appraisal.
  • All consultants are expected to build value in their practice through the contribution and reuse of consulting assets. After each assigned project, a consultant is expected to evaluate the project deliverables and to contribute those items that may be useful to other consultants that may be assigned similar projects. When a new project is assigned, the consultant will search the asset repository for assets that may improve or accelerate the project delivery.
