  • experience in designing, building, or improving data processes and business intelligence solutions;
  • enthusiasm for big data and emerging database technologies;
  • strong technical and advanced Excel skills; and
  • the ability to learn quickly and solve problems, with good communication and relationship management skills and a “can do” attitude.

Ideally, you'll also know about:

  • accounting, auditing, and assurance principles and their practical application;
  • Microsoft SQL Server (2008 or later) and the related BI stack;
  • PowerPivot, Analysis ToolPak, and Power Map; and
