Position Description:

At PIMCO, the Business Intelligence (BI) team is responsible for delivering platforms and solutions that help us extract maximum value from our data. We are working with our sales, product and marketing teams to build solutions that identify the right product for the right client at the right time. As part of this journey, we are looking to upgrade our BI platform to move from traditional reporting to more modern, self-service BI techniques and tooling. This means you'll help us implement capabilities like self-service, data discovery, interactive visual analytics, mobile and cloud BI, search, augmented analytics (NLQ and NLG).

  • Demonstrated ability to learn new technologies as required. You realize that we are in the business of solving problems and adding value agnostic of technology, but are mindful of the impact of supporting and integrating new tech
  • Analytical, trouble-shooting and problem solving skills.
