Business Intelligence Consultant


Job Description

Business Intelligence consulting is not just a string of industry buzzwords; it is quickly becoming one of the most valuable set of services in the business world. Thanks to leaps in data technology and software, companies are finding more value in their data than ever before. Consequently, companies are also finding more value in knowledgeable business intelligence consultants to help them utilize their data.

At InterWorks, we know the difference a quality BI consultant can make during a project. That is why we take pride in employing BI consultants who are intelligent, articulate, and passionate about their work. While it is important to have a strong understanding of data analytics, we value the character of a BI consultant much more.

Our BI consultants serve as a direct line in understanding the needs and desires of our clientele. Since BI consultants work closely with clients, they must possess friendly and engaging personalities. Their primary goal is to help clients understand and manipulate their data in order to gain value from it. This includes providing clients with hands-on training or showing them the best way to layout data visualizations. Ultimately, we want BI consultants whose primary focus is not simply meeting client needs, but exceeding them.

InterWorks’ BI consultants work on projects for an incredibly diverse range of clients in nearly every industry, including for some of the largest organizations the world. Projects also include working with different data sources (SQL Server, Oracle, Teradata, DB2, Excel, Text files, etc.) to unify client data, creating ETL processes based on client needs and managing client expectations. The ability to adapt to change quickly throughout a project is crucial.

InterWorks provides an exciting work environment, with a unique (and downright nerdy) company culture. InterWorks employees are some the most intelligent and friendly people you will ever meet, and they are the primary reason for the success of InterWorks. Joining the InterWorks team as a Business Intelligence Consultant means joining a family and our family is growing faster than ever.
