Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you've never thought possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world's most challenging problems? If so, lets talk.

Your Role and Responsibilities
The role of the Data Analyst is to support data modelling activities as directed by the Lead Data Modeler.

Under the direction and training of the Lead Data Modeler, the Data Analyst will make specific updates to the data models primarily in terms of data object names and definitions.
