Summary

About the Agency

JOB DESCRIPTION: Band 3 Data Engineers develop, construct, test, and maintain architectures such as databases and large-scale data processing systems. They clean, prepare, and optimize data for consumption through the design and construction of massive reservoirs for big data. They solve moderately complex problems associated with database access and integration and unstructured data sets to provide clean, usable data for customers and IT counterparts. These engineers serve as integrators between data architects, data scientists, and other data consumers. They apply broad knowledge of scripting tools, programming languages, standards, and software packages to build the data pipelines that enable faster, better, data-informed decision-making within the Agency. In addition, these engineers share expertise within their team and with their data science and IT counterparts.

Duties

Data Engineers develop, construct, test, and maintain architectures such as databases and large-scale data processing systems. They clean, prepare, and optimize data for consumption through the design and construction of massive reservoirs for big data. They solve problems associated with database access and integration and unstructured data sets to provide clean, usable data for customers and IT counterparts.

They apply knowledge of scripting tools, programming languages, standards, and software packages to build the data pipelines that enable faster, better, data-informed decision-making within the Agency.

Duties include, but are not limited to, the following:

Band 3:
* Utilize a variety of languages and tools (e.g., scripting languages) to build data pipelines to pull together information from different source systems
* Collaborate with data architects, modelers, and IT team members on project goals; ensure systems meet Agency requirements and industry practices
* Design, construct, install, test, and maintain highly scalable data management systems
* Develop data set processes for data discovery, modeling, mining, and production

Band 4:
* Utilize a variety of languages and tools (e.g., scripting languages) and create custom software components and analytics applications to build data pipelines to pull together information from different source systems
* Collaborate with data architects, modelers, and IT team members on project goals; research emerging systems, opportunities for data acquisition, and new uses for existing data
* Integrate data management technologies and software engineering tools into data management systems
* Design, build, and test algorithms, prototypes, predictive models, and proof of concepts

Band 5:
* Oversee the development of data pipelines used to pull together information from different source systems
* Maintain robust internal network and facilitate collaboration with data architects, modelers, and IT team members on project goals
* Identify and recommend ways to improve data reliability, efficiency, and quality in existing data management systems; advise regarding feasibility of integrating emerging data management systems
* Serve as advisor regarding data management technologies, software engineering tools, and facilitate the innovation of systems and tools

Competencies (across all Pay Bands):
* Advising -- provides guidance and expertise to internal and external customers on policies, procedures, technologies, issues, and other organizational requirements.
* Customer Requirements Generation/Management -- demonstrates knowledge of how to build, prioritize, levy, track, review, and validate customer requirements and ensure they are documented and measurable. Includes actions to resolve conflicts between customers and the acquisition community.
* Data Information/Management -- formats, catalogs, and/or filters data and information to facilitate data access, integration, and interpretation.
* Data Modeling -- develops, modifies, and evaluates formal descriptions of data and data structures as defined by a standard (e.g., respective definitions, data semantics, data syntax, associated metadata).
* Data Preparation -- accesses, converts, formats, cleans, merges, and normalizes data in advance of scientific and quantitative analysis.
* Data Standards -- knowledge of agency, industry, and other relevant data standards.
* Database Development -- applies database design principles to develop database and file structures.
* Scripting and Coding -- develops scripts, queries, or software code to accomplish a specific requirement or task.
* Technology Evaluation -- evaluates software, tools, and technologies for future use, and analyzes the potential impacts of new technologies. Identifies technology trends and opportunities.
