Data Architect - Big Data Behavioral Analytics Empty Data Architect - Big Data Behavioral Analytics

If building big data intellectual property fascinates you...
If you live, breathe, and love data…
If you have an excellent academic and professional experience pedigree and are justifiably proud of it…

...then we'd like to talk with you about joining our team.

Fear not because you will not be stuck in the engine room doing long-term (and mindless) support of creaky legacy systems. It's not who we are and it's not what we do.

Note especially well: We are not a recruiting firm, body shop, or internal IT organization. Our revenue comes from high-end project development work and licensed "big data analytics" intellectual property.

The Data Architect is someone who has active and exceedingly strong hands-on DW-BI-DA-SQL architectural skill sets with some project, client, and delivery management experience. Frankly, we need (and financially reward) people who have tremendous breadth and depth as data architects.
