Job Description:

A dbt (data build tool) Developer is responsible for leveraging dbt to transform, model, and manage data within an organization's data analytics stack. dbt Developers play a crucial role in streamlining data workflows, ensuring data accuracy, and providing a structured foundation for data analysis and reporting.


1. Data Transformation and Modeling:

- Design and implement data transformations and models using dbt to create structured, cleaned, and aggregated datasets.

- Develop and maintain dbt models that accurately represent business logic and data requirements.

2. SQL Expertise:

- Write and optimize SQL queries within dbt to extract, manipulate, and join data from various sources (e.g., databases, APIs, flat files).

- Ensure SQL code follows best practices for readability, performance, and maintainability.

3. Version Control:

- Use version control systems (e.g., Git) to manage dbt codebase, enabling collaborative development and tracking changes over time.

- Collaborate with data engineers and analysts to coordinate code changes.

4. Testing and Documentation:

- Implement unit tests within dbt to verify the accuracy and reliability of data transformations.

- Document dbt models, data lineage, and transformations to facilitate understanding and collaboration.

5. Automation:

- Schedule and automate dbt runs to keep data models up-to-date and synchronized with source systems.

- Implement data orchestration and scheduling as needed.

6. Data Quality Assurance:

- Develop and enforce data quality checks and validations within dbt to identify and rectify data issues.

- Monitor data quality and integrity, responding to anomalies or discrepancies.

7. Performance Optimization:

- Optimize dbt models and queries for performance, identifying and addressing bottlenecks.

- Analyze and fine-tune data processing pipelines to meet performance requirements.

8. Collaboration:

- Collaborate closely with data engineers, data analysts, and business stakeholders to understand data requirements and deliver data solutions.

- Participate in cross-functional teams and contribute to data-related projects.

9. Security and Compliance:

- Ensure data security and compliance with relevant data protection regulations (e.g., GDPR, HIPAA) through appropriate data handling practices.

10. Knowledge Sharing:

- Share knowledge of dbt best practices and data modeling techniques with team members.

- Provide training and support to data analysts and other users of dbt.
