  • Use industry standards and/or best practices to complete data mapping and detailed data flows.
  • Analyze data stored in a disparate set of systems to produce data requirements and provide architectural and decision support direction.

  • Ability to communicate/translate seamlessly between Business Owners and Developers.
  • Ability to understand complex business models and their underlying data needs.
  • Ability to understand how data is used end to end by Athene's business functions and processes.
