The agency’s over-arching data strategy is to make the agency’s data more actionable by making it more accessible. The first tactical step in that journey is the establishment of dashboards for the purpose of monitoring the health of the agency’s unemployment system. The range of dashboards include visualization into business transactions (new and historical), the various business backlogs and outstanding workloads, employee performance and if possible, workload projections. DWD seeks an individual who can bring senior level experience necessary to setup the data schemas, the bridging of data from core systems as well as the cleansing and staging of data for business use (business analysis, visual aids and reporting).
