Nielsen Connect is looking for a Senior Data Engineer to work on the Connect Platform, our unified, open, and global data ecosystem powered by Microsoft Azure. You’ll join our Central Data Management (CDM) team of awesome engineers to develop and document Nielsen’s business intelligence solutions.
After you join our team, you will own the design of CDM data models by providing consistent standards, stability and automation required for speed.
So what is CDM, you ask? Central Data Management is Nielsen’s knowledge repository of all Datasets we produce to enable our clients achieve their objectives with timely insights. CDM provides us with consistent standards, stability and automation required for speed to market and great client experience.
Over the last year alone we enhanced the data model to improve client experience and began studying industry trends in technologies ( ex. graph databases and cloud-native PaaS services) to accommodate our growth requirements.
We also developed a framework that provides us with the capability to transform data using Spark processes running on Databricks PaaS clusters, and ingest data to a high performance Data Warehouse, thus enabling apps to seamlessly tap into information required to drive client insights.
We need engineers who are strong in software engineering fundamentals, and passionate about learning and prototyping using cutting edge technologies to come join our team. You’ll also get all the free coffee you can want, all day long.
