ALD Automotive is looking for Data Architect to join Nordic hub
Do you have experience with data warehouse projects, are you passionate about modern data platforms, and do you want to be part of shaping the future of ALD Automotive? Then this job opening might be a perfect match for you.
At ALD Automotive, we are building the “Nordic Data Office” team – a completely new team that will be responsible for improving the use of data throughout the organization. The team’s first milestone is to build a new, integrated data warehouse to serve the four Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland), while maintaining a shared Nordic infrastructure and framework. As our new Data Architect, you will be the local point of contact in Denmark, but you will be taking on tasks for the entire Nordic region.
As a Data Architect, you will be using Microsoft SQL Server BI stack combined with Power BI service on Azure. You will use Data Vault 2.0 models combined with Dimensional models for our data marts in the data access layer. An automation tool (possible candidates are BimlFlex or Wherescape) will be used to build the data warehouse, and, thus, the role of the Data Architect is extremely important for the success of the data warehouse.
As a Data Architect, you will be collaborating closely with the business, and together with the other Data Architects, you will own and be responsible for the delivery/facilitation of:
- Data Vault Models (Raw + Business Vault).
- Dimensional Modelling Workshops.
- Enterprise Bus Matrix.
- Dimensional Models (data marts).
- Source to Target Data Mapping.
- Data Profiling.
- Data Dictionaries.
- Reconciliation & Data Quality automation.
You will also take part in the overall architecture of the data warehouse, including:
- Setting and implementing the automation tool.
- Integration to the Power BI service (Corporate Data Flows, Shared Data Sets).
- End user coaching and mentoring on using the data warehouse.
Your qualifications and competencies
We expect that you have previously participated in data modelling sessions, you know what a bus matrix is as well as why business processes are relevant for a good dimensional model, and you understand the basics of data vault modelling techniques. You understand the need for an integrated data warehouse, and you can document experience with integrating data from multiple sources to a single business data warehouse model. You have at least 3 years of experience in delivering data warehouse projects in general.
It is an advantage if you have:
- experience with automation tools such as Wherescape or BimlFlex.
- experience with BEAM* Modelstorming by Lawrence Corr.
- experience with leasing and vehicle data.
To succeed in the Data Architect role, you have a high drive and can work independently. You are structured and process-oriented, while you also possess an analytical mindset focused on quality. Furthermore, you speak and write English effortlessly.
ALD Automotive – Leading mobility
Our Nordic HQ is based in Denmark, and you will become part of our Nordic hub consisting of around 60 colleagues. The Nordic IT organization is, besides Denmark, based across Sweden, Norway, and Finland. When it is possible to travel internationally again, you must expect two weeks of traveling per year in this role.
We take data seriously, and we believe that data architecture is the most important discipline in a successful enterprise-wide integrated data warehouse, and you will have a key role in shaping our team and our data warehouse.
