  • Built a solution encompassing data extraction to report presentations using Tableau.
  • Designed the data model for the solution, focusing on a structure optimized for complex queries with excellent performance.
  • Set up the data architecture using Azure, prioritizing the lowest possible cost for the client without compromising integrity and performance. I configured Azure SQL, Blob Storage, and Azure Data Factory for this solution.
  • Created data pipelines using Azure Data Factory and was responsible for loading CSV files from the Blob Storage server, processing the loaded data, and distributing it into the respective tables in Azure SQL.
  • Created and configured Tableau Cloud, in addition to making data sources and dashboards for use by the entire team.

2022 - PRESENT
Toptal Client - Zips Car Wash
  • Created a data pipeline to gather information from multiple relational databases using T-SQL, SQL, task scheduling, and background jobs from SQL Server.
  • Constructed a database using concepts such as the starflake model and data vault, guaranteeing that the solution has historical data to be consumed within a data visualization tool and has integrity across multiple fact tables.
  • Produced routines capable of processing almost 1 billion records in a short time, using only T-SQL and SQL.
  • Prepared many database views for Domo (a data visualization tool). I studied Domo to create the best approach for a cost-effective solution, joining performance on consuming data with the lower cost of using Domo for my client.
  • Created a routine using GIS (Geographical Information Systems) operations, which compares the weather on a 7-day basis to compare with the users' visits to my client's stores.

MariaDB and Tableau Expert

2022 - 2022
Magnolia Jewelers Inc.
  • Remodeled the client's inconsistent database so as to avoid inconsistencies, created indexes to allow faster processing of reports, and designed the database to scale. The client was a jewelry company.
  • Created a procedure that checks the employees' inserts in the database to point to possible places where a correction is necessary. Before that, they used to spend much time cross-checking the shipments received from China.
  • Fixed—in four hours—a coding error that had been occurring for over half a year, and they could not find what was wrong. I found out that the problem was an implementation of a MySQL function that, in a specific scenario, was miscalculating dates.
