Here at 84.51° data lies at the center of everything we do and because of this we treat our data solutions as products in and of themselves. The Sr. Data Solutions Owner is therefore part Product Manager, part Data Wrangler, part Data Evangelist and part Data Architect.

At a higher level the Sr. Data Solutions Owner is perhaps the job where the epithet “wears many hats” is most apt. To be a Sr. Data Solutions Owner at 84.51° you cannot be just one thing. You need to be ALL these things.

You are a JACK OF ALL TRADES. Technical and Business Analyst who can “float” between Data Solutions, helping to define and refine Epics, Features, and Stories for scrum teams, coordinating across technical teams (development, operations, etc.).


You are an ENGINEER. Well “culturally” at least. You can roll with engineers, speak the same language, grasp the technical concepts (and problems and opportunities) quickly, and by so doing gain the respect and trust of the people actually building the bits. You can also grind out queries to interrogate data with the best of them and help solution alongside the engineers.


You are a ROUTER. The better a job you do at bringing the right information together with the right person to act on it (particularly when that’s not yourself) the faster stuff gets done.


You are a SME. You understand the data – its origins, intersections with other data sources and content. You can add context and are always looking for possibilities to make the data even better.


You are a COACH. Teams and analysts come to you looking for guidance on what data to use and how to use it.


You are an ENABLER. Doing what needs to be done to allow the business priorities to move forward. This includes digging in to drive out inconsistencies in the data, bringing in and understanding new datasets and how they fit into the big picture.


You are an INTERROGATOR. Performing data analysis and investigation is what you live for. Each bread crumb leads you to another piece of the puzzle.


You are a JANITOR. Because if you’re not doing cleanup & data hygiene work, then someone else has to and that means they aren’t doing their own important work — and that means your data and the products built on it will suffer.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years.
