AWS Dev Ops Engineer, Analytics

The Analytics Office at Financial Engines seeks an experienced Dev Ops engineer to build and maintain a robust AWS cloud infrastructure to support our data warehouse and data pipelines, business intelligence assets, and data science capabilities. 

What is the Analytics Office?

The Analytics Office is three groups within the Investment Management department of Financial Engines:  Data Engineering, Business Intelligence, and Financial Technology.  We own analytics systems like the data warehouse, Tableau dashboards, certain corporate data marts, and the data pipelines that feed them.  We are separate from the product development and IT departments that own our corporate product code and production systems.  The expectation of the company is for Analytics to be largely self-sufficient in its systems and administration.  As opposed to the product organization (Java), Analytics is primarily a Python shop.
