The Data and Engineering Services team within the Media Technology & Information Services (MTIS) group is looking to add a Senior Data Engineer to be part of a team dedicated to the architecture, design and implementation of projects focused on collecting, aggregating, storing, reconciling and making data accessible from disparate sources to enable analysis and decision making.

As an independent contributor, this individual will collaborate within a team of technologists to produce enterprise-scale solutions to meet our clients’ needs.

In this role, responsibilities will touch on all stages of the software engineering life cycle: understanding customer requirements, designing the application, testing the application, and monitoring the system for issues. There will also be an opportunity to exercise highly-developed collaboration abilities interacting with other technology teams on broader cross-organization initiatives.

Working within an agile environment, the Senior Data Engineer will provide input into architectural design decisions, develop code to meet business needs and ensure the applications we build are meeting high standards of quality and support-ability. The individual will have the opportunity to develop his/her technical knowledge and skills while evolving the overall technical maturity of the team.

This position will be based in New York City.

  • Ensure that data pipelines are scalable, repeatable and secure.
  • Deliver quality work on defined tasks with little oversight and direction.

  • Build applications that generally impact multiple components/processes and the work of own and possibly other units/teams/projects.
  • Interact with internal and external peers and management to share highly complex information related to areas of expertise and/or to gain acceptance of new or enhanced technology/business solutions.
  • Mentor less experienced members of the team.


  • 2-3 years of hands-on experience designing and implementing large-scale, complex Extract, Transform and Load applications using industry-leading ETL products/platforms.
  • 4-6 years of hands-on experience using SQL to perform complex data manipulation.

  • 1 year of hands-on experience in any Cloud environment.

  • Ability to deal with ambiguity and work with rapidly-changing business data.
  • Must have strong communication skills (written and verbal).


  • 2-3 years of experience building advanced scalable ETL workflows and pipelines using SnapLogic and/or Informatica.
  • 2-3 years of experience working in the AWS Cloud environment.
  • 1+ year of experience working on Snowflake Cloud Datawarehouse on AWS
