Database Architect

Power BI is arguably the hottest Azure service and any BI offering on public cloud right now. Not only we are saying it, but Industry Benchmarks like Gartner are saying it and placing Power BI ahead of the rest.  

This team owns a charter which is among the most interesting and exciting across the industry, combining: A) mission critical data; B) big data scale; and C) real-time. This 3-pronged challenge is as tough and as cutting edge as it gets.   Think about it: no one else, among Google, Twitter, FB has the above perfect storm of technical challenges. Google indexes and serves up massive scale, but they are not doing it on user data. Even if half the index goes missing on a given day, no one will take them to court. If 20 of my FB likes go missing, I won’t even bother emailing them. Twitter and FB are not storing Wall Street grade (i.e. mission critical) data. We are.  

Come, challenge yourself to work on cutting edge, large scale problems on a service that is taking the world by storm.
