You will contribute to an orchestration layer of complex data transformations and will be responsible for: ingestion of raw data with different formats from many disparate sources; processing, refining, and validating the raw data; and, transforming them into targeted, valuable data assets for a wide range of applications and consumption. You will partner with data engineers, software developers, data scientists, data analysts, and business stakeholders to solve complex and exciting challenges so that we can build capabilities that evolve the retail business model while making a positive impact on our customers' lives.
