ABOUT THIS JOB

Around here we’re all “numbers” people, but it’s the 1s and 0s behind our data that make what we do possible. Software engineers strike a balance between precision and disruption, between reliability and innovation. Nielsen is a tech company backed by nearly a century of forward momentum to power a better media future for all people—and we couldn’t do it without our engineers.

 

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOU

Common design patterns and industry standards are second nature to you. Developing rich BI dashboards? You’re up for that, too. You’ve honed your tech skills alongside your people skills and can clearly communicate technical concepts in a way that makes sense to anyone. You’re ready to put your experience to work and take ownership of projects on a global scale, without a lot of guidance—after all, you’re fluent in a few programming languages. You have the vision to strategize for the next generation of front-end and back-end services and processing engines that will drive tomorrow. You’re ready for what’s next.

RESPONSIBILITIES

 

  • Write clean, concise, maintainable code and tests
  • Actively participate in team code reviews and enforce quality standards
  • Drive innovation and automation at every step, from coding to deployment
  • Promote and implement best practices in development and operations
  • Collaborate with product and other engineering teams

 

QUALIFICATIONS

 

  • 2-4 years of hands-on BI software development
  • The training to back your work: a master’s degree, bachelor’s degree, or, as we recognize there isn’t one formula for success, equivalent work experience
  • Advanced experience in SQL, NoSQL, Data Warehousing, Performance optimization and Dashboard building
  • Ability to translate business requirements into technical solutions within either Tableau, PowerBI or Superset and of course expertise in using a wide range of technologies like Git, PostgreSQL, Redis, Docker and cloud services like AWS, Azure, GCP to build data pipelines.
