Data Architect

The Opportunity:  

For an organization to transform in today’s digital world, it needs to properly collect, store, and organize its data. Effective data management can enable more efficient operations, yielding more growth. As a data architect, you know how to apply your creative-thinking and analytical mindset to help organizations manage their data assets. We’re looking for a data architecture (DA) lead like you to solve complex challenges and deliver leading-edge solutions for an Army client.

As a data architect on our Army national security team, you’ll use your extensive technical expertise to lead the design of DA solutions for data strategy, governance, and analytic activities. You’ll resolve routine DA issues in collaboration with business analysts and technology teams by creating and implementing standardized application programming interfaces for accessing data and leading the integration of metadata across disparate platforms into a central data catalog to provide critical business insights across the Army enterprise. In this role, you’ll share your technical expertise, introduce best practices, and use tools like noSQL databases, Java, SQL, R, and Python to establish the data ingestion methods, data storage, and data transformation methods to initiate DA activities, including extract-transform-load (ETL) processes and data warehouse solutions design, through business needs analysis and routine issue resolution. You’ll lead your team as it designs, defines, develops, and tests cloud solution components, and serve as a liaison between clients and developers to ensure that requirements are met, and solutions are delivered. With your motivation to establish processes and facilitate technological innovation, you’ll make a lasting impact on Army data business and solution initiatives.
