Data Engineer Summary

Hi! I’m a Data Engineer, designer, builder, and manager of Big Data infrastructures. I’m a collaborative engineer with 17+ years of experience designing and executing solutions for complex business problems involving large scale data warehousing, real-time analytics, and reporting solutions. Known for using the right tools when and where they make sense, as well as creating an intuitive architecture that helps organizations effectively analyze and process terabytes of structured and unstructured data.

Data Engineer


  • Big data architecture on AWS : We extract Petabytes of data every month from external data sources from both, structured and unstructured data types.
  • We use bach and streaming data processes: For bach → AWS S3 → Glue + Athena → Redshift.
  • For streaming we use Kafka: AWS Lambda / AWS Step Functions → AWS MSK → AWS Kinesis → S3 → Snowflake.
  • On the Data Warehouse: We use Redshift and started migration to Snowflake where we’ve mainly Star Schema model type and using separated databases that defines the Landing, Stage and Final zones. On the last one we store our Fact-tables and Dimensions.
  • We also implemented Apache Airflow for DAG’s automation that connects data from other services on AWS like Redshift – Kafka – Athena. There we store ours ETL using python, Pyspark, and Scala languages.
  • ML Modeling: Using AWS EMR Notebooks→ time series analysis (with correlograms) to detect and assess intensity of change points or new trends in KPI’s, and match them with events (such as redefining user, which impacts user count). Click fraud and Botnet detection—taxonomy creation.
  • CI/CD: We mainly use python with Alembic(SQL-Alchemy library) for SQL data migrations, and Circle CI + GitHub.
  • For C-Level reports we use Power BI as main data visualization tool and started some others with Looker.
  • AWS (Redshift, Lambda, Athena, S3, DynamoDB, Glue), PostgreSQL, Spectrum, Snowflake Platform, Jupyter Notebook, Python 3.8, Pyspark, Scala, Apache Airflow, Kafka, Power Bi, GitHub, Jira)
