Jr Data Visualization Engineer at Brightfield Group (Chicago, IL)

Visualization Engineer at Brightfield Group

Full Time

Our Tech team is looking for a Data Visualization Engineer to make our BI reports stand out.  You will be responsible for creating and updating BI reports and using your sense of design to tell a story with our data.  You will not only be responsible for creating appealing, informative visuals but also for evaluating report load times and making improvements to and redesigning data schemas.  You will need to be able to make small website updates in HTML and CSS (and if you know JavaScript that won’t hurt). You will work closely with other members of the tech team during project planning to ensure the data formatting is correct, and easy for you to work with.


You will be the technical liaison to our analysts and business people, the one who can take their “pie-in-the-sky” ideas and translate them into compelling reports.  Being well versed in data visualization will be crucial to encompass the analysts' big ideas, and distill them down into digestible reports for our consumers.


We are looking for someone to step in and own our data visualization process.  A typical day for you will be attending brainstorming sessions for new reports, creating mockups after the brainstorming session, spending some time fixing bugs discovered by our testing process, collaborating with the tech team to validate data processing, and working with HTML and CSS to layout new reports on our site.
