Examples of initiatives we would expect you to drive could be overseeing the next version of client facing reporting through our API, ensuring data consistency from our Azure Data Bricks-based data platform all the way to our client-facing REST API, and defining and rollout a standardized serialization/deserialization setup from typed/structured data to JSON/XML over message bus.
