Ready to thrive in the next step on your career journey?

West Monroe has developed an innovative data management platform called Intellio™ DataOps (IDO) which is a metadata-driven, fully-managed data lake and data hub with data warehouse automation features. IDO can be deployed to the client’s cloud and be ready to start ingesting source data in just a few days. Our team then focuses on iteratively tackling client business issues, using IDO’s web-based user interface to ingest, cleanse, enrich, and publish new data as needed without worrying about technical aspects such as data modeling, change data capture, scaling, schema drift, storage, data lineage, and performance.

IDO is very popular with clients as they get a ready to use, enterprise-grade data platform and a consulting team focused on solving business issues on week one of the engagement. West Monroe is looking for an experienced architect to join our team and support IDO in the following ways:
Core Responsibilities:

  • Drive the technical implementation of Intellio™ DataOps (IDO) projects by leading the technical design and data extraction approach while considering risks and tradeoffs with client resources.
  • Learn the IDO platform and lead the architectural design, execution, and delivery in the following ways: 
    • Add configurations for data enrichments such as lookups, type conversions, calculations, and concatenations
    • Add data quality rules
    • Connect to new data sources
    • Map multiple sources into a single output
    • Interpret IDO error messages to troubleshoot data pipelines
    • Create outputs that facilitate reporting, dashboarding, and semantic modeling for tools such as Tableau and Power BI
    • Write custom scripts using Python or Scala that use the IDO SDK to create custom functionality
    • Optimize IDO implementations by adjusting Databricks cluster sizing, job orchestration, and resource allocation
  • Communicate the value of IDO as a product to Technical Developers and IT management, including data architecture strategies, pricing considerations, and IDO strengths compared to similar products
  • Teach the IDO platform to West Monroe and client resources, demo functionality as needed
  • Assess IDO platform issues and escalate to the internal IDO product team as appropriate 
  • Mentor and manage teams on client projects to develop performant code; provide project reviews and frequent, informal feedback for team members 
  • Conduct code reviews and quality assurance of development in Intellio DataOps
  • Provide best practices and support developers and clients in technical testing and user acceptance testing of data development
  • Work with our industry teams to develop industry-specific offerings on the IDO platform that include connections to particular data sources, maintenance of relevant reference data, and development of canonical models, enrichments, data quality rules, metrics, reports, and dashboards 
  • Help develop and deliver consultant training internally at West Monroe, especially in the area of IDO methodology training; act as an internal technology evangelist for the IDO platform
  • Review features and recommend updates to functionality in the IDO platform




    • Minimum 6+ years of hands-on professional development experience
    • Strong technical experience in ETL tools (Azure Data Factory, AWS Glue, Informatica, Talend, IBM DataStage, etc.), database platforms (Snowflake, Redshift, Azure Synapse, or Oracle,), and data visualization tools (Tableau, Power BI, IBM Cognos, or SAP Business Objects).
    • Experience performing complex data migration to and from disparate data systems/platforms as well as to/from the cloud (AWS, Azure, etc.).
    • Knowledge of traditional data modeling (Kimble, 3rd normal formal) in addition to modern, denormalized, flat data models
    • Experience scripting data engineering pipelines in languages such as Python, Scala, and/or Java.
    • Very strong SQL skills for data analysis required.
    • A detailed understanding and hands on experience preferred implementing data management technologies, including data warehousing, reporting, analysis, data modeling, etc.
