  • About Us

    The Girl Scouts data engineering team is seeking a Data Architect who is a visionary in defining and managing data architecture, with expertise in data modelling (Kimball method), ETL, performance tuning, data governance and data security. 


    The ideal candidate is a self-motivated, results driven technologist, who is passionate about collaboration, but can work independently and lead by example. The Data Architect will work with and mentor peer data engineering teams, ETL developers, Looker BI developers and the GSUSA infrastructure team.   


    Core Responsibilities 

    Data Quality / Data Integrity

The Data Architect will be responsible for building highly scalable data repositories and for performing database performance tuning. The architect will define and track the KPIs to measure performance and provide visibility to senior management. The individual will set the standards for the design and coding of highly scalable solutions and will work with ETL developers to create and maintain a centralized ETL stream which is highly scalable with low latency.
