Our Team's Mission and Methods
The Data Analytics Team at Splunk focuses on delivering actionable data on a silver platter to both external customers and internal data scientists, data analysts and users.
Our new Data Analytics Platform was designed to satisfy the data quality requirements of our high-value and high-complexity data, while also providing fast query performance, ease of maintenance, automatic self-healing, immutable data, and fully automated CI/CD code deployment. Our target technology stack includes Kinesis, S3, Lambdas, Kubernetes, Athena (Presto), Parquet, Postgres, Python, and Scala.
The team's influences and backgrounds come from data warehousing, data lakes, big data, analytical data engineering, business intelligence, software engineering, and devops.
We're currently building and transitioning into the Data Analytics Platform - and so are continuing to experiment, explore and evaluate these methods as we move forward.
And we are committed to making the work fun, interesting, and exciting while collaborating, mentoring, and supporting one another.
Who You Are
Over the last five or more years you've been working as a data architect or data engineer building and maintaining custom data pipelines and data at rest in support of reporting and data analysis using a number of elements from our technology stack described above.
You think of data as one of the most valuable resources an organization has, not just an inconvenient by-product of a process, but an opportunity-rich source of features and capabilities. You understand that the success of a data engineering team is measured by the success of its data consumers and so think deeply and creatively about ways to deliver high-quality, high-functionality and high-performance data for these users.
While primarily a data architect with exceptional skills in dimensional modeling, parallel query technology, columnar storage, metadata, and data management; you are also a software engineer comfortable writing clean code and automated tests.
You are an enthusiast - of analyzing data, of helping people make a difference with data, of building great analytical solutions, and of automated testing and software delivery.
And as a Senior Data Architect, your focus will be primarily on:
And since we're a small team, you will also get to occasionally wear the data engineer hat and participate in building, testing and supporting our pipelines.
