What we?re looking for:
As a Senior Business Intelligence Developer at 2U, you will have the opportunity to use all of the skills that you've developed over your career in building complex software systems. Being the supporting infrastructure behind some of the most prestigious universities requires careful market analysis and a constant assessment of our student?s learning experience. This requires powerful analytical systems, and will you have the opportunity to help build them from the ground up using Amazon Redshift, Tableau, and Python.
Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:
? Build and maintain data flow/ETL systems that migrate data from Salesforce, cloud based marketing systems, and traditional transactional systems, into Amazon Redshift clusters using open source technologies.

? Work with the technology team to establish and support a data governance process for 2U?s multiple source systems.
Things that should be in your background:
? Deep understanding of relational databases, especially PostgreSQL, although working experience with other SQL database systems is sufficient.

? Familiarity with dimensional data modeling and experience constructing 3rd normal form data models. Knowledge of data warehousing theory, especially Kimball?s contributions, is helpful here.
? Extensive experience using HTTP API clients (SOAP, REST) in a scripting language environment to extract data from products such as Salesforce, Facebook, Mixpanel, Google AdWords, or Bing Ads. Bonus points if you can show us a client you?ve written to.
? Working with customers to analyze needs and turn them into clear and effective requirements.
? Software development experience with at least one scripting language and one compiled language, ideally Python and Java.
? Experience working in a security-focused environment, ensuring auditing capabilities, defensive unit testing around ACLs.
? Building tools that automate and make processes reliable, scalable, and consistent.
? Where possible, never working in the absence of version control.
? Taking unit testing, documentation, code-readability, and general best-practices in software development seriously. Comfortable working with unit testing and mocking frameworks.
? Solid written and verbal communication skills, and not letting ego get in the way of discussing solutions and helping others.
