Department:  Technology
Location: 

Englewood, CO, US, 80112

Summary of Position:

The STARZ Data Products & Engineering team is seeking a data engineer who’s passionate about drawing a thin line from data to insight and exposing that insight to internal users to support important business decisions. You’ll be building data pipelines, crafting our data processing framework, and helping us to integrate disparate signals into a clear picture of where the organization is at and where we can go. We’re building out a system of experimentation so teams can use that picture to form hypotheses, test them, and easily see the results.


 
From rendered reports sent via Slack for easy mobile consumption to Google sheets integrations to allow for flexible reporting for end users, you’ll be working across our entire technology stack to find places where we can use data to improve our business. Our users range from extremely technical (providing us with models to run, and wanting tables or files in return) to less technical (providing inputs via a UI or spreadsheet and expecting results displayed in-line or in a report). This is an opportunity to exercise your technical skills with a highly skilled team from a variety of diverse backgrounds while helping every aspect of our business to be more efficient and more data-driven.

Responsibilities:
  • Develop, test and maintain optimal data processing pipelines and related architectures, ensuring the overall solution will support business requirements
  • Build the infrastructure required for optimal extraction, transformation and loading of data from a wide variety of data sources using cloud-native technologies
  • Assemble large, complex data sets that meet functional/non-functional business requirements
  • Develop and implement processes for data modeling, mining and production
  • Continue to build out our data processing framework, and expand it to support less and less technical users
  • Employ a variety of languages, tools and techniques to marry systems and the data generated from those systems together to maximize the strategic value of the data
  • Build analytics tools that utilize the data pipeline to provide actionable insights into customer acquisition, retention, behavior and other key business performance metrics
  • Create data tools for analytics and data scientist team members that assist them in building and optimizing our products
  • Recommend and implement ways to improve/ensure data reliability, efficiency, and quality
  • Employ sophisticated analytics, statistical methods and machine learning to prepare data for use in predictive and prescriptive modeling
  • Explore and examine data to find hidden patterns
  • Identify, design and implement internal process improvements: automating manual processes, optimizing data delivery, re-designing infrastructure for greater scalability, etc.
  • Discover opportunities for new data acquisition
  • Be prepared to translate findings to key stakeholders
  • Work in a heavily collaborative environment, taking on a variety of roles when necessary with a positive attitude
Experience & Skills:
  • 4+ years working directly as a member of a technical team, preferably developing/supporting/innovating for a consumer-facing analytics product
  • BS degree in information management, computer science, math, statistics, or equivalent technical field
Required Skills:
