  • Select appropriate Snowflake and third-party tools to optimize architecture performance.
  • Design and deploy a shared data set using the Snowflake Marketplace and Data Exchange.


2+ years of practical experience with Snowflake as an Architect in a production environment. In these two years, successful candidates would have achieved hands-on expertise with SQL and SQL analytics, experience building out a complex ETL/ELT pipeline, experience implementing security and compliance requirements, and working with different data modeling techniques. Having coding experience outside of SQL and DevOps/DataOps design experience is a plus.
