Customer Liaison

You ll be helping bring a supplier and social licence view to how we bring data in, as we move toward using new tools in the transformation of our core Integrated Data product, the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI). You ll also be working across the unit, with two other Data Wranglers in our data on-boarding function.


Service Delivery

In this role you ll be working alongside another Data Wrangler to lead a small group of analysts responsible for on-boarding the data to be transformed into our world-leading integrated data products.

As a Data Wrangler in one of these roles, you ll be:

  • Developing knowledge of data wrangling tool Trifacta and a Hadoop Datahub platform
  • Building, testing and implementing our processes through the design lifecycle with trust in mind
  • Working directly with suppliers and Stats NZ to nail down technical requirements
  • Translating those needs for non-technical people involved in decision making
  • Helping provide oversight of the production process:
    • Checking data supplies against requirements
    • Checking our testing procedures and processes
    • Investigating data quality issues
    • Organising the data to fit the system
