Skill and Knowledge Profile

  • If you are inquisitive, self-demanding, and ambitious...
  • If you live, breathe, and love data and behavioral analytics...
  • If building and growing an early stage company is in your career plan...
  • If you have an excellent academic and professional experience pedigree…
Then we'd like to talk with you about joining our team.

Aginity provides game-changing data and analytic solutions for Fortune 500 companies and venture-backed disrupters. Our innovative delivery and design model for data-driven warehousing sets us apart from less nimble competitors. We are a rapidly growing early stage firm led by entrepreneurs who have built successful companies. We are looking for the type of people who can take us and themselves to the next level.

Note well: We are not a recruiting firm, body shop, or internal IT organization. 100% of our revenue comes from end-to-end project development work done on behalf of external clients. We take formal bottom-line responsibility for the results we deliver.

The Data Architect is someone who has active and exceedingly strong hands-on DW-BI-DA development skill sets and now has excellent project, client, and delivery management experience.

Experience and Skill Requirements
In our descriptions below, we use the word “like” intentionally. We do not present a comprehensive list of all the skills that might be relevant for our work nor must you have everything we list. We are building a team and looking for long-term players with vast meta-skills to excel. We evaluate candidates by placing your knowledge and skill into our context to determine if and how the pieces fit together. The right candidate is able to abstract from the samples below to help determine if he/she might be a “unique fit” for Aginity.

We expect you to use your best judgment to the benefit of Aginity clients, fellow Aginity employees and your own career.
