Sage Hospitality is Looking for a BI Manager!
Were looking for someone who is passionate about BI.
We have a small BI team so the right candidate needs to feel comfortable managing internal developers, consultants, vendors and end-user expectations all while rolling up his/her sleeves and doing hands-on BI development, training and support.
We are an agile development shop no lengthy requirements documentation just lots of prototypes. We also do not have a report backlog so we look forward to your fresh perspective and new ideas.
For 2019, your top 3 projects will be:
1.Starting to architect and build a Sage-specific data model to replace our existing data model (in SQL Server on AWS) that was inherited from some of our source systems
2.Working with a MicroStrategy consulting firm to build and pilot Sages first employee-facing mobile application yeah!
3.Working with our current forecasting/budgeting software solution provider (www.profitsword.com) to upgrade to their latest software version.
Now for the skills assessment:
Would you consider yourself a SQL expert (i.e., would you rate your SQL skills at least a 9 out of 10)?
How sharp are your Microsoft SSIS skills? We use SSIS as our ETL tool no plans to change so this is a KEY skills requirement.
How comfortable are you developing reports in Microsoft SSRS and MicroStrategy? You need to feel really confident in at least one of these toolsets.
Have you architected a data model before (i.e., do you know star schemas, snowflakes, 3NF, data lakes, etc.)? We know we need to do something different with our data model and will rely on your expertise.
