  • Support data analytics platforms and data science workflows, along with identifying ways to strengthen and scale our data infrastructure with Imperfect’s fast-paced growth, including exploring alternative data management and pipeline tools
  • Design and maintain the architecture and organizational structure of our data warehouse, and keep it tidy by establishing and implementing a strategy for managing roles and permissions, monitoring usage, and cleaning up old objects
  • Ensure quality of deliverables using development testing methods, documentation, code reviews, and user acceptance testing, and implement effective data tests and monitoring to ensure accuracy and reliability of data and ELT pipelines
