The first 90% of a data conversion is simple, but the remaining 10% is where the fun starts. That’s where you get to exercise your problem-solving skills. If the following describes you, you’re a perfect fit for the data conversion specialist role at Grant Street Group.
You want to work with a team of awesome project managers, business analysts, developers, and data specialists to migrate clients to our TaxSys software. At Grant Street, you will have the opportunity to be part of a project team of 2-3 developers and 2-3 data specialists (including yourself). You will prepare data for customer training, verification by customer subject matter experts, and of course TaxSys go-live.
You love analyzing data and solving puzzles. In this position, you will help reverse-engineer legacy tax data and write specs for conversion into TaxSys. Developers will implement them, and you’ll QA the results and refine the specs. You’ll track down bad customer data and figure out how it got that way.
You’re an excellent communicator. Communication, both written and verbal, is what you do. You’ll work on specs for developers, documentation status updates for management, and customer communications. You know your audience, and you adapt to their needs and technical level. You keep it brief and to the point.
You love working with people. As a data conversion specialist, you’ll be the face of Grant Street Group. You’ll guide clients as they verify their data in TaxSys. You’ll help them understand tradeoffs and make decisions – for example, between “more” and “cleaner” data. Clients consistently describe our conversions as the best vendor experience they’ve ever had, and you will be one of the key people making that happen.
- At least 1 year of experience in each of the following:
- Working directly with customers
- Experience with data mapping, specifications, and/or other deliverables for developers
- Analyzing data using SQL tools
- Experience with SQL
- Outstanding planning and time management skills
- Experience with ETL tool and/or dbVisualizer a plus
- Experience with a BI tool such as Microstrategy also a plus
