  • Automate quality assurance to ensure that data adheres to a common set of standards
  • Identify and socialize improvements to data processing infrastructure and workflow
  • Analyze the quality of our data and insights that can be generated from it
  • Establish, monitor and optimize infrastructure and application-level stability, performance and reliability measures and metrics
  • Plan team testing activities and support scheduled releases and deployments

Skills and Qualifications:
