The RoleReporting directly to the BI Architect, you will join a Microsoft-centric BI team consisting of an architect, technical director, developers, analysts, and a project manager. You will be responsible for the end-to-end design and development of BI reports and applications including gathering requirements from the business owners and working with the deployment manager to deploy reports among multiple system environments from development, test, stage, and production.
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.
The team follows an Agile Scrum methodology so it is essential that you promote an environment of open communication and actively convey progress, challenges to making progress, and enhancement suggestions. You’ll work with a variety of internal contacts including the Project Management Office, QA, and others. We have team members throughout the country and internationally and your ability to successfully collaborate with remote colleagues will be key. Although you’ll work a typical Monday-Friday schedule, there may be occasional meetings that are conducted in the evening or early morning to accommodate other time zones.
