  • Proficient in data processing technologies (e.g., Hadoop, Spark, PySpark) and real-time data platforms (e.g., Apache Kafka, Flink, Spark Streaming).
  • Strong understanding of SQL and programming languages (Python, Java, Scala) with a solid foundation in machine learning algorithms and other data science fundamentals.
  • Experience with cloud data platforms (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure) and a deep understanding of data security and quality governance.
  • Exceptional analytical skills, attention to detail, and the ability to collaborate effectively across multidisciplinary teams.
  • Exceptional problem-solving abilities and attention to detail.
  • Excellent communication abilities, both in written and verbal form, are essential for effective collaboration with diverse teams.

Bonus Qualifications:

  • Proficient with various cloud providers, e.g., AWS, and experienced in data development in cloud environments.
  • Experience in aerospace or a related field, particularly with flight test data analysis and aircraft health monitoring.
  • Advanced skills in predictive analytics and machine learning models for maintenance and anomaly detection.
