Job description

You are an all-round “techie” with strong interpersonal and troubleshooting skills and are fluent in “tech” talk to effectively communicate and unlock data sources by implementing and monitoring our data extraction and automation solutions across our clients and data sources as required.

You don’t need much hand-holding and are a proactive multi-tasker with very strong organisational and administrative skills to efficiently manage and handle numerous tasks and data extraction projects in a structured manner while remaining calm and collected.

You troubleshoot with ease and are systematic at working through processes to identify and resolve issues timeously and effectively. You display patience in the resolution of issues and working in an ever-changing environment energises you.

You are confident in engaging professionally with and in building rapport with both the internal team as well as external clients and data sources. You can communicate technical issues to technically competent individuals as well as explain technical issues in layman’s terms in order to ensure understanding. You are not afraid to e-mail or pick up the phone to communicate and execute on tasks with individuals based across our geographic landscape.

You love data or technology and have “stickability” when it comes to embarking on a steep learning curve and figuring out how to use our tools and systems. You are acutely focused and comfortable monitoring the performance of numerous data extracts and “downtime” is a word that doesn’t exist in your vocabulary. You are deadline-driven always ensuring that timelines are met if not beaten.

You will work closely and take direction from the data extraction manager and will interact with the business development, client success, data extraction, projects, operations and Insights teams.

Responsibilities:
  • Manage and monitor the automated data feeds across the regions and troubleshoot and resolve issues ensuring the efficient and continuous feeds of data as required
  • Sets-up and execute on new data extraction and automation tasks, interacting with data sources via e-mail, telephone and face to face in order to secure data feeds, receive data in required formats and architect solutions
  • Owns the installation process for automated data sources and schedules installations, provides on-site and telephonic support and co-ordinates and manages 3rd party suppliers
  • Schedules, manages and drives the planning meetings with the business development, client success, data extraction, projects and operations teams
  • Identifies and provides on-going feedback regarding additional functionality or improvements that can be made to the data automation and extraction process
  • Upon the accurate completion of automation of a data source, hands over to the Projects team for configuration of the data source for ongoing delivery.
