Who you are

You are a Data Engineer with a few years of hands-on experience in data storage and integration. You have expertise in ETL.

What’s in it for you? 

Impact and access to cutting-edge technology. Data is at the heart of everything we do. We are actively pursuing the latest iterations of modern technologies. You want to be part of leading complex data modelling, and guiding a remote team. This is a chance to build something new with great visibility across the organization and endless possibilities ahead. You will be able to further define your role and drive new work, building an ETL process you believe in, continuously iterating as we work on more projects and the data evolves. You will have the chance to work across all levels as you play an integral part of our growing Managed Services business.

Growth and career development. Altus fosters a culture of professional development and promotion from within. With retention rates double the tech industry average and dozens of promotions within and across teams, this is a place to truly expand your skills and grow your exposure. This may include the chance to grow your team and move into a people management role if that interests you.  

As our new Lead ETL Developer, you will focus on:

Define application solutions and new features. You will design and build prototypes, and develop new features using the latest web technologies or backend technologies such as data storage and integration platforms to build technical specifications used to convert data in Talend. You will interpret customer requirements and identify and build data structures. You will code, document and implement project specifications programs. You will perform troubleshooting and root cause analysis for escalated production issues. 

Lead the team. You will direct and guide the day-to-day tactical work of a geographically dispersed team. You will:

  • Be accountable for assigning and reviewing work.
  • Provide regular and effective progress updates.
  • Support project resource scheduling and department capacity planning.
  • Contribute to post implementation reviews helping to demonstrate success.
  • Monitor and manage project and team performance.

Provide technical guidance. You will work with Services to draft solutions, configuration specs, and test plans to meet client requirements. You will monitor the ETL process by the development team and provide insight to ensure ETL output is created properly and adaptive to logic.

Collaborate. You will build trusting relationships. You will:

  • Partner with the Services Manager to ensure project delivery on time and on budget.
  • Take responsibility for ensuring that risks and issues are identified and managed closely and drive all stakeholders to meet timelines and the required quality standards.
  • Work closely with relevant teams internally to ensure alignment and coordination across operations as part of the seamless implementation of existing and new systems

So, how do we know that’s you? You have:

The relevant education. You have a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Data Analytics or a related field. You have hands-on experience in a Data Developer or Data Analytics role, expertise with Excel (v-lookups, pivot tables, macros, discounted cash flow analysis) and data integration ETL tools such as Talend, and exposure to working across the SDLC.

The industry interest. You have a keen enthusiasm for growing your knowledge in a new industry. You may have exposure to or can quickly build your understanding of real estate functions such as Valuations, Property Management, Underwriting, Tenant lease data, Portfolio Management, and Reporting.

The leadership skills. You can build collaborative working relationships and gain the trust of your team, influencing their work to ensure deliverables are met on time. You are capable of understanding and contributing to the technical solution from design through to code level.
