  • Write complex SQL queries against multiple databases, to analyze existing data, and understand the scope and nature of data quality issues
  • Understand and document data flows
  • Write specifications for data quality rules, including new ones as well as changes to existing ones
  • Write specifications for fixes to front–office systems, to avoid future data quality issues
