- Define and choose requirements in collaboration with business and technical leaders, proposing partial solutions, discussing tradeoffs, and reframing needs where appropriate
- Build strong relationships with technical colleagues to be able to drive architecture and systems decisions with little oversight and to integrate data management across systems
- Troubleshoot scaling issues and system problems, and contribute to overall security, availability, and disaster recovery planning
