Data Quality Analyst

Data Quality Analyst

Why is our Data Transformation team the next step for you?

Worldpay is one of the largest global payments (Fintech) businesses in the world that has put data at the centre of the business by creating a new Data Transformation team that spans business and technology. The Enterprise Data Platform (EDP) is an innovative use of “Big Data” technologies to provide powerful analytic capabilities for Worldpay.

 

The data quality in this system will have a major impact on the productivity of the Enterprise Data Platform. And so we are creating this role with the opportunity to have a practical and measurable impact on the improvement of data quality in the Enterprise Data Platform. 

How will you add value on a day-today basis?

Working as an integral part of the Data Governance and Quality, you will source data using the chosen data profiling tool. You will be talking with users and developers to unearth known, or suspected, data quality issues. This also includes investigating data quality issues, recording findings and actions in Jira. You will encourage users to log suspected data quality issues in Jira. You will prioritise data quality issues according to their impact on the business and pursue resolution at the source of the problem.

On a given day, you may find yourself defining data cleaning rules, as a last resort, where resolution at the root of the problem is not feasible. It would involve enriching metadata with data quality assessments. You will develop, maintain and test measures of data quality. You will also identify planned system changes that affect data quality and monitor data quality daily. None the less you will contribute to data quality guidelines.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

You will possess an excellent understanding of data management gained with relational databases and/or NoSQL systems. You will also have a very good knowledge of standard SQL and the ability to adapt to the limited implementation in Hive QL. You will have a good understanding of UNIX systems, especially Linux along with file formats: csv, XML, JSON, etc. You will be working with business users to understand the business impact of technical anomalies in the data. You will also have strong analytical skills, including basic statistics and the ability and willingness to create and maintain concise, accurate, readable, relevant documentation.
