We are a small company located in a cosy office in the south of Wroclaw. Our main area of expertise is data warehousing and business intelligence. Main industry we specialize in is telecommunications however we provide services to many other businesses.
We established a strategic partnership with a consulting company Client Solutions in Ireland (http://www.clientsolutions.ie/). Our consultants are part of the international team working on all aspects of providing BI and other software services to customers in Ireland and UK.
Role of a Junior BI Consultant
Each of our consultants has a direct (e-mail/phone) 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 organized 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 skill set, 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
There are two requirements that are a must have for everyone. A very good knowledge of SQL and at least B2 level of English language. We prefer people with at least communicative knowledge of Polish.
If given a set of tables and a business question (“list managers whose team earn the most money”, “list the sales person for whom the customers are the most reliable in terms of payment”) you should 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 books. 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 show 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 whom you can learn. We ask everyone in the team who starts as a junior to get certified data warehousing technologies, most likely Microsoft. We cover the expenses related to certification.
Our work atmosphere is a mixture of focus and times when we talk and joke. We like to go out together for lunch to our local Vietnamese or Ukrainian restaurants (except for Thursday which is our burger day).
