You’ll work closely with the BI architect to deliver high quality solutions that meet the needs of each business stakeholder.  In many instances you will be accountable to take a specification sheet from the BI architect and produce a production level report or application. You’ll be involved in virtually all aspects of the development processes, and we’ll look to you to troubleshoot and test your reports and applications for performance.  This may involve checking the databases, hardware (memory, disks), software utilization, and network performance.

We are committed to helping our people grow professionally, including providing training opportunities.

Great environment -- at Digital Realty you'll join a great team made up of diverse personalities in an easy-going but results-oriented atmosphere. We value transparency and collaboration, and understand the value that each employee brings.

We’re looking for someone who is proactive and can work both independently and as part of a team. You will have the skills to check and document your own work, write queries, check-in code, perform testing, and ensure the application is running correctly. You’ll work to reduce development time and work estimates and stay within the budget throughout each project. 

You will have access to the latest development tools to support the company's internal and external business needs—continuous learning and skill development is a priority here.  You’ll need to have a positive, fun-loving attitude and a strong work ethic in order to succeed in this dynamic role.
