Philadelphia, PA
Source One is seeking a Data Quality Engineer to support our procurement consulting firm based in Willow Grove, PA. A qualified candidate should demonstrate understanding and expertise in classifying and managing large data sets. This role requires a unique blend of research, data entry, data manipulation, organizational skills and logical problem solving.
Our clients engage us for guidance, expertise, and solutions to help transform their procurement and supply chain groups within their organization. One of our firm’s growth areas has been data & analytics, including spend analysis, e-procurement, and procurement department “health” metrics.
  • Spend Analysis is the practice of reviewing a client’s expenditures, suppliers, general ledger and other sources of information in order to classify their spending habits into category structures (taxonomy).
  • E-Procurement is the facilitation of bid collection using an online platform. This includes collection and analysis of data from Source One’s proprietary e-procurement site, ZipRFP.
  • Procurement department “health” metrics are the collection and analysis of internal and client data points intended to track the performance of a procurement organization.

We are looking for an individual that understands the importance of data and the underlying challenges represented by redundant, inaccurate, or misclassified data found in large datasets spanning numerous clients and procurement tools. The ideal candidate will have the ability to research what data means, draw conclusions on how it should be classified, and understand how to best maintain and measure appropriate data quality and governance levels.

  • Use data quality tooling to profile source data, define or confirm the definition of the metadata, cleanse and accurately check the project data, check for duplicate or redundant records, and provide information on how to proceed with backend ETL processes.

  • Initiate corrective action to address issues or discrepancies in the data collection and/or data processing practices, leveraging understanding of business data domain and detailed knowledge of the underlying data sources.
  • Recognize and resolve conflicts between data models, ensuring that they are consistent with the appropriate client or enterprise model (e.g., entity names, relationships, and definitions).
  • Translate business analytics needs into semantic data access. Identify, implement, maintain rulesets that enable efficient and accurate business process automation.
  • Define, document, and maintain all data definitions, data sources, business meaning, and usage of information.
  • Work with business stakeholders verify data access mechanisms satisfy analytics consumption needs, consult in requests for specialized master data,
  • Participate in project planning processes, identify project tasks, and lead or assist with project timeline estimates.
  • Establish data quality standards and data control sets for data in motion and data at rest.
  • Ensure stable and consistent delta processing for data loads.
  • Continually assess and incrementally improve the quality of the data by developing reporting, metrics, and KPIs that allow for rapid visibility into the data’s historical and present state cleanliness and value.
