BI engineers design, implement, and maintain systems used to collect and analyze business intelligence data. They create dashboards, databases, and other platforms that allow for efficient collection and evaluation of BI data. They work closely with marketing staff and other stakeholder to gain an understanding of BI goals and objectives to ensure the systems and their capabilities support competitive research efforts that achieve those goals. They may train other staff members on the use of BI tools and programs.
BI engineers typically have a bachelor’s degree in a computer science field, or credentials specifically related to business intelligence. They must be comfortable designing and implementing data collection and analysis systems. These roles require familiarity with data visualization software programs and related tools.
