Who we are
Our firm is providing support and development services in the area of data warehousing and business intelligence. Key technologies we deal with are Microsoft BI, Oracle, Microstrategy, SAP Business Objects.
Our main customers are telecommunication companies but we also work for other industries. We are working 100% with customers from Ireland and UK.
Role of a Junior BI Consultant
Each of our consultants has a direct contact with our end customers. This requires us not only to understand the code of ETL scripts/packages or the way that tables are mapped into the attributes in the reporting platform but also to be able to speak the customer’s language.
You would have to be a very well organised person in order to handle incoming e-mails with new questions and queries, handle investigations of issues that require data research and code analysis. When you gain the understanding of the system you will also be responsible for developing changes in the systems we manage.
We are responsible for the operations of the data warehouses and reporting platforms so everyone needs to gain some DBA and administration skills.
This isn’t all. We are often assigned with tasks beyond our regular skillset, we need to be able to learn fast. Sometimes it’s setting up a new database server on a specific operating system. Sometimes it is to do a research on a latest Big Data technology and whether it’s suitable for our purposes.
Our customers are located mainly in Ireland and while it doesn’t happen very often you might need to show up at our customers offices. We welcome all people who are not afraid to travel.
Of course as a junior you will never be left alone with everything. There will always be someone that would help and advise.
What we require
An ideal candidate would have good knowledge of SQL, if given a set of tables and a business question (“list managers whose team earn the most money”, “list the sales person for which the customers are the most reliable in terms of payment”) he would not have a problem to find the answer. It would be great to have some data warehousing/reporting background, if not you’ll be requested to read Kimball’s book. Every extra skill in the database/programming area would be an advantage as well as experience with various operating systems (linux/unix).
What we offer
Our standard contract is for one year after which we do a review and a salary adjustment. Our goal is to keep people for several years. As you grow you would be given new, more senior responsibilities. There is no specific path, as long as you are proactive and showing what direction you would like to go towards we are willing to do everything to accommodate that.
You will be working with experienced colleagues from who you can learn. We ask everyone in the team who starts as junior to get certified data warehousing technologies, most likely Microsoft.
Our work atmosphere is a mixture of focus and times when we talk and joke. Everyone has ability to take free individual English classes. We have sandwiches and good coffee. If this isn’t enough, you can use your break to have a nap, no one would disturb you ;-)
