the role.

The Analytics Engineer role will play a critical role in creating and maintaining our new data processing pipeline. Initially you will work closely with other members of the Engineering and Business Intelligence teams to capture data, create infrastructure, and translate our reporting needs into useful metrics. The role will then develop into improving and maintaining that ELT system, extending our metrics into new areas of the business as part of a KPI-driven squad, and working alongside Business Intelligence to share engineering best practices.

The ability to gain insights from our data is essential to allplants' success. By building seamless shared-ownership and reliability between Engineering and Business Intelligence this Analytics Engineer will bridge a common gap left by a traditional Data Engineer role.
