You communicate as well with technology as with business stakeholders. You pride yourself in providing a self-service, production-ready data platform that keeps the lights on for the business’ data products.

As you will build out Collibra’s first data lake you will leverage your experience to lead our internal data infrastructure into state of the art, and help data teams across Collibra drive change through data.
