At Kiewit, the scale of our operations is huge. Our construction and engineering projects span across the United States, Canada and Mexico, improving and connecting communities with every initiative.

KDS is a cross functional organization with employees that have expertise in data, technology, support and operations backgrounds.

Location

This position is based out of our Lenexa, KS campus. This is a corporate office in a professional office setting.

Responsibilities

  • Best-in-class solutions – Your primary role will be delivering analytical solutions to the business. You will need to bring a strong business acumen and work to understand the business challenges facing your stakeholders and deduce where the greatest opportunity for analytics solutions lies. From there, you will need to leverage your technical skills and deep knowledge of data to deliver/build solutions to these stakeholders.
  • Data Modeling – You will have access to many data sources to provide solutions to your stakeholders. But often this data may not be modeled or structured in an optimal manner to meet your needs. We will have resources to offer support, but ultimately you will be expected to be highly self-sufficient and have the technical skills (SQL) to restructure this data as needed.
  • Data Visualization – Often, there will be a need to visualize data to communicate your findings, or perhaps create a sustainable dashboard solution. Your output will embody data visualization best practices and meet our high-quality and performance standards.
  • Data Analysis – You will be expected, without specific direction, to leverage data to make strategic recommendations to the business. This may include formulating and testing hypotheses, performing correlation analysis, and other forms of data mining. You will be expected to understand and articulate the business impact of any recommendations.
  • Communication and Presentation – On the front end, you will be expected to guide requirement gathering conversations with stakeholders, asking insightful questions to see the business from their perspective. On the back end of solution development/analysis, you will be expected to explain results of analysis to team members, train stakeholders on how to use decision support tools, and succinctly convey how solutions meet specific business needs.
  • Data Collection – You will be expected to develop a deep understanding of the core applications we leverage to collect, manipulate, and store data. You will work with stakeholders and key members of our product team to understand which data we capture today, as well as participate in the development/procurement of future solutions and processes to capture other necessary data we may not be currently collecting.
  • Analytical Advancement – We are intent on serving as the data and analytics leader in the construction industry. You will be expected to embrace this mission and work closely with your team members to advance Kiewit’s overall analytical capabilities.

Qualifications

  • Interest in leveraging data to solve unique and challenging business problems
  • 4+ years’ work experience performing data analysis, data mining, statistical analysis, etc. in a professional setting
  • Bachelor’s degree in Analytics, Statistics, Computer Science, Economics, Business Management, or related field; Graduate degree in analytics or data science a plus

 

Technical Skills

  • Database querying (SQL for MS SQL Server and Teradata highly preferred)
  • Data Visualization (Tableau, Power BI)
  • Statistical coding languages (Python, R)
  • Knowledge of data lineage and ETL

 

Non-Technical Skills

  • A deep desire to add significant business value
  • Inquisitive nature
  • Strong critical thinking
  • High business acumen
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Passion for learning and development
  • Effective time management and organizational skills
