-Define and choose requirements in collaboration with business and engineering leaders, proposing partial solutions, discussing tradeoffs, and reframing needs where appropriate
-Build strong relationships with technical colleagues to be able to drive architecture and systems decisions with little oversight and to integrate data management across systems
-Troubleshoot scaling issues and system problems, and contribute to overall security, availability, and disaster recovery planning

About you and your skills:
-Experience designing, redesigning, and building multiple distributed architectures for storage as well as batch and real-time processing
-Experience with Amazon AWS technologies such as RDS, Aurora, Redshift, EMR, Athena, Glue, Kinesis; with the Spark ecosystem; and with learning and applying new technologies
-Well-informed opinions about what ETL should be maintained in hand-written code vs built with ETL tools, as well as what should be maintained centrally vs by distributed teams
