About the team

Zillow is redefining real-estate by empowering people to unlock life's next chapter!

About the role

We are looking for a Data Architect and Technical Lead for Data to guide data modeling and architecture across Zillow Group. Data management is evolving quickly, from monolithic warehousing, into raw data access in a data lake, and further toward a well-governed data mesh in which each data producer contributes to a curated water garden of data used across the organization.

This role will help drive this transformation by working closely with software engineering, data science, and business leaders to ensure stewardship and semantic consistency of data across business lines and service boundaries. Solutions will include collaborative data modeling, strategic tooling design and selection, and process design and execution. Both technical excellence and soft influence skills will be vital to success in this role.
