76/hr SSAS/Power BI Technical Lead. 12+ Months. Contract. Milwaukee, WI. (L-3193) (A)

WHY APPLY?

Are you a 12+ year technical lead focused on MSFT based analytics?  Good depth (2-3 gigs as a lead) with Power BI?  Looking for a long term contract?  Then this might be of interest to you.

In short, one of our largest direct clients is looking to add a "BI Intelligence Analyst" to their existing team.  Role would own several large marketing programs for the client focusing on mining for trends in consumer behavior to increase effectiveness of the programs.   The client is a 'consultative' organization that builds custom solutions based on this product and then supports their client on that custom implementation long term (hence the consultative / project / firm deadline feel to work).  Resources wear multiple hats (BA, Dev, QA, etc.) as they execute within lean teams.  This role is an ongoing need (so could go for some time).  In short, if you know your stuff in the reporting domain -- look no further.  

So if the above sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!!

    CHANGE LOG:

    10/11/18 18:08 PM . Tim Bauer. Closing this out. Hiring manager confirmed they went with another candidate. Thanks for submitting.

    09/28/18 01:43 AM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to WFF

    09/28/18 01:43 AM . Tim Bauer. Client is talking to candidates next week. Move back to hold.

    09/18/18 18:24 PM . Tim Bauer. Given the two candidates pulling at the last minute (who were both not local/relos) we need to focus on candidates that can do in person interview at their cost. That demonstrates how serious a person is.

    09/18/18 17:17 PM . Tim Bauer. 2nd candidate, from us, withrdraws after offer from client. So we'll reopen this (still waiting for confirmation client wants to keep going).

    09/17/18 19:41 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent confirms this is still going and our one submission is 'in play' still. However, they would like to see one more resource if possible.

    09/06/18 15:11 PM . Tim Bauer. Clarification on interviewing ... skype is possible but if get gig – then 100% onsite – the guy that bailed was going to be remote after 1-2 months but they are burned on people that want to work remote once they get the gig now.

    09/05/18 12:20 PM . Tim Bauer. This lead may be reopening. Candidate that was at offer stage is looking like they will take a different gig. So, if you want to share fresh options today it might make sense. I'll officially repost if/when I get a final decision from that candidate.

    09/05/18 12:19 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to 1-Active

    08/28/18 18:40 PM . Tim Bauer. Client extends offer to our candidate (continue to hold)

    08/23/18 14:42 PM . Tim Bauer. Client is working on an offer for one of our candidates so we'll continue to hold here (in case that falls apart). In the interim, no more submissions to client.

    08/21/18 14:29 PM . Tim Bauer. Still waiting on feedback from that skype interview (2nd) w/ one of our candidates last Thursday (8/18). Holding till we get that.

    08/09/18 11:59 AM . Tim Bauer. Client requests phone screen with our candidate shared on 8/3. Scheduling now.

    08/09/18 11:30 AM . Tim Bauer. Still waiting for feedback from end client on prior submissions (strange). Move to hold as we wait.. Might imply they have a preferred option in pipeline.

    08/03/18 17:03 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to 1-Active

    08/03/18 16:05 PM . Tim Bauer. Shared submission to hiring manager today. SImilar to one from earlier in the week but confirmed can do 100% onsite (which is what had the director balking at the prior candidate).

    08/02/18 11:54 AM . Tim Bauer. Client seems to be interested in candidate that screened yesterday. Hold for now as we try to work out some nuances with the candidate (see if we can close deal).

    07/26/18 12:39 PM . Tim Bauer. Moving this to hold. Waiting for feedback from hiring manager (have 1 candidate that looks solid in front of them). Hold till that resolves.

    07/24/18 15:38 PM . Tim Bauer. Shared submission to client. Solid option covering most of the bases (digital marketing, google analytics, powerbi, lead roles, etc.)

    07/19/18 17:06 PM . Tim Bauer. Basically they are building out (or have) a reporting solution based on PowerBI/Google Analytics/SSIS it sounds like and they want someone that has driven solutions (hands on technically) for digital marketing using that.

    07/19/18 14:52 PM . Tim Bauer. Updated lead to include new target attributes (and shifted around the existing ones) to more accurately reflect what the hiring manager is telling us to target today.

    07/19/18 14:32 PM . Tim Bauer. HIring manager passes on 2nd submission due to lack of senior ba skills (communication, executive facilitation, etc.). Updates target years to 12. Increases rate max to 76 (from 66; up 10) but candidate would have to be extremely experienced (executive ba skills, practical power bi hands on technical depth, etc.). Continue to source based on that.

    07/16/18 13:39 PM . Tim Bauer. Working on scheduling client call for submission. We'll see how that plays out.

    07/11/18 16:35 PM . Tim Bauer. After talking to 4 more candidates in pool, shared another candidate to hiring manager today (after they passed on our other candidate on Monday). We'll hold now as we wait to see feedback from them.

    07/10/18 13:58 PM . Tim Bauer. Compared to candidates client has rejected we are tabling submissions with 5 years w/ aspects of Power BI and its components.

    07/09/18 17:22 PM . Tim Bauer. Client put our candidate on hold for now. Their comment -- "We do need more time to asses other options. Candidate was knowledgeable on theoretical aspects, but hands-on practical application of some of those concepts was not very impressive." So continue to source looking for someone similar to best candidate in pool years wise -- but more practical hands on with it.

    07/05/18 13:08 PM . Tim Bauer. Waiting for feedback from technical screen with client today.

    06/26/18 20:15 PM . Tim Bauer. Sharing submission to hiring manager today. Solid candidate -- local, powerbi, ssas, python, articulate.
