WHAT WILL WE DO TOGETHER?

We will leverage python, Java, and/or SQL and orchestration tools like Airflow and Google DataFlow to deliver new insights from transaction level data sources to Retail and CPG companies that work with SPINS.

We will create and maintain robust, scalable data pipelines to power SPINS products centering around transaction-level data. You will be working in a “hands on,” high-visibility engineering role to ensure the reliability and integrity of our data for the full path between our retail partners and our products. You will work with other engineers and the SPINS lead architect to design and implement a canonical data model for transaction level data from our most important retail partners.

We will develop and drive the analytics efficiency of the organization by contributing to a codebase that can be leveraged in projects across the organization, and we will thrive on continuous improvement when value is determined by client results.

WHAT ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES?

  • Develop and maintain tools that bridge disparate data sources across the organization to serve data models, dashboards, decision aids, and business case analysis with up-to-date and accurate information.
  • Collaborate with our data scientists on engineering predictive features from our product intelligence database.
  • Prototype, implement, and optimize data new pipelines and architectures that can transform our data to impactful insights.
  • Create robust daily, weekly, or monthly automated processes to deliver impactful work.
  • Create innovative and efficient techniques that better solve the problems we are working on
  • Assess risks to proposed analytics solutions based on quality of existing data sources and actively develop QA procedures to mitigate those risks.
  • Tailor our syndicated data to retail and CPG business needs in a robust and scalable way.
  • Facilitate knowledge transfer across the business between Product Delivery and Commercial teams.
  • Recommend and implement enhancements that standardize and streamline processes, assure data quality and reliability, and reduce processing time to meet client expectations.

YOU ALREADY:

  • Have a professional quantitative background with an education that stresses analytical thinking and quantitative methods (STEM)
  • Have several years of experience as a data engineer with demonstrated success in designing & maintaining data warehouses
  • Have a strong knowledge of python & SQL in a data context (iterators, pandas, scikit-learn, etc.)
  • Are passionate about innovating new ways to answer novel problems
  • Are comfortable with being given the self-autonomy to work independently and experiment with new ideas and new ways to design and implement data science solutions to advance business goals
  • Have confidence in being the expert on SPINS data capabilities and best practices based on independent synthesis of a broad range of data
  • Familiarity with Docker and Google Cloud infrastructure is a plus

  • Direct– We communicate with clarity, honesty and respect in all situations and embrace opportunities to provide solution-oriented feedback.
  • Determined– We are committed to overcoming all obstacles to achieve results. We adapt to change, seek opportunities to learn and rapidly translate that learning into action.
  • Passionate– We go above and beyond to help our partners achieve their goals. We challenge assumptions and are comfortable forging new paths.
  • Collaborative– We leave our egos at the door, believing that working together we will produce an outcome that’s greater than each individual contribution.
