  • Build the infrastructure required for optimal extraction, transformation, and loading of data from a wide variety of data sources using a choice of industry-leading tools.
  • Develop ETL processes ensuring data quality and integrity.
  • Build analytics tools that utilize the data pipeline to provide actionable insights into customer acquisition, operational efficiency and other key business performance metrics.
  • Build out a robust data warehouse from the ground up
