The Role

This role sits within our Australia- New Zealand- Japan & Korea (ANJ) Business Unit which is a unique and fast-paced environment. Whilst our teams will continue to work remotely- this role is typically based in KHC’s Melbourne office but offers a flexible working policy.

In this role- you will be reporting to the ANJ Analytics lead- and working with the business to build and deliver analytics solutions. You will have a team of data engineers and work alongside other analytics engineers to design data models and visualization solutions.

  • What is the clearest possible naming convention for tables in our warehouse?
  • What if I could be notified of a problem in the data before a business user finds a broken chart in Tableau?
  • What do analysts or other business users need to understand about this table to be able to quickly use it?
  • How can I improve the quality of my data as its produced- rather than cleaning it downstream?

Primary Responsibilities

  • Help to define and improve our internal standards for style- maintainability- and best practices for a high-scale data infrastructure
  • Expand our data warehouse with clean data ready for analysis
  • Work together with our data engineers and data analysts to define guardrails to build an environment which enables data democratization to enable organizational insights

  • Experience with Snowflake- dbt and Tableau would be advantageous
  • Clear and direct communication skills about complex- technical topics
  • A problem solver with an analytical mind and a thirst for understanding
