Senior Business Intelligence Engineer






San Francisco, CA, US


The Business Intelligence (BI) team is the newest function within the Data organization at Udemy. In this role, your primary responsibility will be to ensure the availability and usability of high quality data throughout the company. Through data modeling, performance tuning, and standardization, you’ll 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 a sharp, independent individual with a talent for structuring solutions to broad, ambiguous questions related to how we structure our data, and who shares 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 infra/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:

    • 5+ years of experience working in business intelligence, engineering, data infrastructure, or equivalent
    • Excellent SQL skills with experience building tables in a production environment
    • Basic coding skills with Python or equivalent
    • Experience with tools like Redshift and Hive
    • Knowledge in ETL performance tuning / query optimization
    • Strong communication skills to partner with and understand the needs of every major data-consuming team in the company
    • Self-driven, highly motivated and able to learn quickly
    • Experience implementing a BI tool like Looker or Periscope is a plus
