Associate Data Engineer
Finance Irvine

Blizzard Entertainment games don’t just begin with game ideas or end once those games are released. A lot more goes into the creation of a Blizzard product than the work of developers—and we support our games for years after they’re in the hands of gamers worldwide.

  • Interact and work with other departments and international offices involved with financial data.
  • Ad-hoc reporting as necessary.

Requirements

  • Background extracting and transforming complex data sets (ETL process design and administration)
  • Familiar with enterprise ETL tools (preferably DMExpress)
  • Experience working with relational databases (preferably Oracle)
  • Technical understanding of data modeling, design, architecture principles, and techniques to take business requirements from concept to implementation
  • Experience with developing software within a strong internal control environment which complies with Sarbanes-Oxley
