  • Background working with high volume and high velocity data warehouses.
  • Emphasis on data quality, unit testing, and creating testing frameworks for reliable data.
  • Comfortable working with stakeholders and SMEs across the company.
  • Enjoys a fast-paced environment with a variety of small projects and bigger initiatives.
