Business Intelligence Engineer

| San Francisco
The Business Intelligence (BI) team is responsible for ensuring proper data governance at Udemy. As a business intelligence engineer, you will work on projects that enhance the availability and usability of high quality data throughout the company. Through data modeling, performance tuning, standardization, and documentation, you will enable internal stakeholders to work more efficiently and effectively with data. And through self-serve analytics and training, you’ll play a central role in driving a strong data culture at Udemy.
This role isn’t about solving a well-defined set of tasks (e.g., report building). Rather, we’re looking for sharp, independent individuals with a talent for structuring solutions to broad, ambiguous questions related to how we organize our data, and who share our passion for improving lives through learning!

Here's what you'll be doing:

  • Become the expert on all aspects of Udemy's data reporting and analytics infrastructure
  • Work closely with other data engineers to enhance infrastructure, improve reliability, and strengthen database performance
  • Develop and maintain data definitions for internally available data sources
  • Collaborate with analysts, product managers, marketers and other data-driven internal stakeholders to identify opportunities for better data access and usage
  • Contribute to the ongoing development of the data warehouse ecosystem
  • Assist with training of business stakeholders on self-service tools that can be used to effectively obtain data

We're excited about you because you have:

  • 3+ years of experience working in business intelligence, engineering, data infrastructure, or equivalent
  • Excellent SQL skills with experience building tables in a production environment
  • Self-driven, highly motivated and able to learn quickly
  • Knowledge in ETL performance tuning/query optimization
  • Experience with data processing frameworks and tools, such as Redshift, Hadoop, Hive, Spark, Kafka, etc
  • Strong communication skills to partner with and understand the needs of every data-consuming team in the company

Preferred, but not required:

  • Strong knowledge of object-oriented design, data structures, and algorithms
  • Fluent in Python, Java, or Scala
  • Experience implementing a BI tool like Looker or Periscope

How does the company support your career growth?

Udemy provides me with daily opportunities to grow as an engineer. My manager genuinely cares about my career plan and professional growth. In every project that we’ve chosen for me to work on, I had the chance to improve my weaknesses and demonstrate my strengths. It is so important to feel valued at work, and Udemy has been doing a great job.

Senior Staff Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

My philosophy goes beyond normally scheduled one-on-ones, which I regard as simply guaranteed check points. I have a truly “interrupt me anytime” policy, so my staff feels comfortable enough to talk with me at any moment. My team is my work-family and, as with my own family, it is a top priority for me to be there to support them.
