As a Data Warehouse Architect, you will act as the primary advocate of data modeling methodologies and data processing best practices to develop a clear technical vision for our Student Success organization’s data warehouse. You will be responsible for the leadership of overarching data architecture vision and coordination of all data warehouse efforts that affect data, with a focus on data moving throughout the Student Success systems. This will be accomplished by mapping and documenting current data sources used throughout Student Success, creating a data dictionary which captures the business meaning of the data used, and working with various teams to eliminate unnecessary steps and modify interfaces.

  • Defining technical standards and guidelines for how to use architected databases, the technologies to be used for various purposes like data extraction, transformation and integration, and models of entities, objects, and processes. These guidelines will encourage the use of existing data stores where applicable as well as address security and quality
  • Ensuring that standards are up to date by investigating emerging technologies and new releases. This means working in conjunction with technology architects (where they exist). Participation in proof-of-concept projects and other projects that are early users of new technologies is required from time to time
  • Communicating the data architecture to the development community, IT operations, IT management at all levels, and business owners
  • Focusing on data quality by educating the business on its importance and involving and facilitating the work of business constituents on improvement programs including the assignment of data stewards which are a critical component
