We power online services for exciting clients like the NBA, the BBC, LifeLock, Angie's List, Chelsea Football, and many others. Our business is growing at an exciting pace, and we're expanding our team to rise to the opportunity.

At Vindicia, we’ve always prided ourselves on using data to help our clients excel. Our business reviews help each client get maximum value from our platform by helping them to understand not only the metrics for their own business, but also how those figures compare to a larger audience. As our business continues to evolve, we want to completely revamp how we’ve delivered this valuable service  and you’re just the person to help us get there.

Vindicia is hiring a Data Warehouse Architect. Passionate about our customers' success, the Data Warehouse Architect will lead the development of the next-gen data warehouse within the services organization.

This role is absolutely central to the value our clients get from Vindicia. Through our business reviews, we provide insight to our clients that they can't get any other way. Typically we present these reviews to C-level and executive VPs  it's that important to their business. Your initial focus will be to improve our ability to develop these reviews and identify ways to make the content even more compelling.

You will be guiding a team to develop the complete data warehouse. This is a hands-on role. We’re big fans of “leading from the front,” so we’ll expect you to be familiar with tools like Tableau and Pentaho. Knowledge of more advanced tools like Hadoop, Hive, etc. is also expected.
