ETL Data Architect (Informatica)

Do you want to watch clinical technology change, or do you want to be the one to shape it?

Because we’re hoping you’re here for the latter.


Who are we?

We are 13,000+ employees strong, operating in more than 85 countries.  We are committed to saving lives and we are constantly striving to be the best at what we do.  Our impact is real and we see it every single day.  We help get life-saving drugs into the hands of those who need them most.


Who are you?

You are a forward thinker.  You are an innovator that refuses to settle.  You want to push the boundaries and change not just what it means to be an ETL Data Architect; you want to change the future.  You want to learn from the best, grow your knowledge and your skill set, and you want to build your career.  You want to use the latest technology and tools in the industry to push the momentum of an already growing company forward.  You want to find a balance that still lets you be, well, you.  Most of all, you want to do it in a place where you’re more than an employee number…a place you love working.


Still here?  Good.  If this is you, we’d really like to meet you. 


What will you be doing?

We’re taking a fresh approach at ways that technology and analytics can empower those working in the clinical lifecycle and shape the future of clinical development.  Develop, implement, and maintain systems that align to PRA’s IT architecture and strategies.  Participate in design sessions and provide input on software solutions.  Act as technical lead for one or more projects, providing oversight and guidance on technical and design issues and mentor junior team members.  Act as a liaison between software engineers and architecture.  Be proactive in software design and architecture, working closely with architects and software engineers to come up with the right solutions to the problem.  Be an active participant and lead code reviews.  Keep up to date with the latest developments in the software field.
