  • Collaborate closely with data analysts, scientists, and other key players to comprehend their data requirements and assist with data-related projects
  • Determine and fix any problems with the data pipeline, performance bottlenecks, and other potential technical difficulties
  • To promote knowledge sharing and the onboarding of new team members, keep documentation for data pipelines, ETL procedures, and workflow setups
  • Keep up with the most recent BigQuery and Airflow innovations and continually enhance your data engineering methods

Job Requirements:
