You will manage projects from requirements gathering to planning to implementation of full-stack data solutions (pipelines to data models to visualizations in Looker). You will work closely with cross-functional partners to ensure that business logic is properly represented in the semantic layer and production environments, where it can be used by the wider HBO Max team to drive business strategy.

• Contribute innovative ideas to the Analytics Engineering roadmap
• Participate in the creation and support of Analytics development standards and best practices
• Rapidly deliver on concepts through prototypes that can be presented for feedback
• Train fellow employees on best practices for data visualization and help others act as successful stewards of our tools

The Essentials
• Bachelor's degree or greater in quantitative field of study (Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Finance, etc.) from a top-tier institution
• 4+ years of relevant experience in business intelligence, analytics, and/or data engineering
• Expertise in writing SQL (clean, fast code is a must) and in data-warehousing concepts such as star schemas, slowly changing dimensions, ELT/ETL, and MPP databases
• Experience in transforming flawed/changing data into consistent, trustworthy datasets, and in developing DAGs to batch-process millions of records
• Experience with general-purpose programming (e.g. Python, Go, Java), dealing with a variety of data structures, algorithms, and serialization formats
• Advanced ability to build reports and dashboards with BI tools (such as Looker and Tableau)
• Proficiency with Git (or similar version control) and CI/CD best practices
• Experience in managing workflows using Agile practices
• Ability to write clear, concise documentation, and to communicate generally with a high degree of precision
• Ability to solve ambiguous problems independently
• Ability to manage multiple projects and time constraints simultaneously
• Care for the quality of the input data and how the processed data is ultimately interpreted and used
