What is the role of an ETL developer at a company?

Before diving into the role of an ETL developer at a company, let’s start with the basics. Who exactly is an ETL developer? Firstly, ETL refers to Extract, Transform and Load and suggests quite explicitly the working of an ETL developer as well.

ETL is the implementation of loading data in the data warehousing environment of a business. In simpler terms, it states that you need to copy or send your data from your businesses processes and load it into the data warehouse. The reason for doing it is so that all the information is up-to-date.
Now, an ETL developer is the one who is responsible for designing the data storage system for the company. Also, they are the ones to test it before it goes live.

Now, an ETL developer is responsible for three things majorly:

Extraction of data: The developer is responsible for managing the extraction tools which extract data from the diverse data sources that the company uses. These include databases, SaaS services, mobile apps etc.

Transformation of data: The next aspect comprises of the corrections or additions. The developer needs to make a processing engine that would assure that any corrections or transformations that need to happen to remain in place. This tool would also manage all the new data that arrive later in future.

Loading of data: The final thing that the developer needs to take care of is the Loading. Completely in contrast to the first stage, this stage requires the developer to make a tool that is capable of loading the data that was initially collected and added to a data warehouse.

Even when the accomplishment of these three steps happens, the developer’s job doesn’t end. They must ensure that their designs run smoothly and no problem occurs.

Other than this, an ETL developer should be a highly technical person. And should focus on establishing the best infrastructure that suits the needs of data team of a company.

What are some major skills that every ETL developer should possess?

By performing the tasks of Extracting, Transforming & Loading; ETL Development can make the lives of Data teams very much easier! However, even to accomplish this goal, there are some skills that every ETL developer must have in them. Check out the following list!

Hence, the developer needs to have the ability to be able to look through that and solve problems. Also, this is where all the above-mentioned skills play a role!
