Position Title: Technical Lead (Data Platforms) Organisation Unit: Technology Services Campus: Gold Coast.
My name is John Broomfield and I have a wealth of experience in Business Intelligence, Data Analysis and recently completed my Master’s Degree in Data Science with James Cook University. I commenced a new role as a Technical Lead (Data) for Southern Cross Universities Data and Analytics function in November 2022. Prior to this, I managed the Data Team for Australia largest smash repair company AMA Group, delivering reporting and analytics solutions for senior management along with 180 repair sites around Australia.
I can gather and document user requirements and turn them into actionable insights effectively while developing strong relationships with stakeholders regardless of seniority. I manage priorities using an agile development approach and continuous integration (CI) to deliver working software solutions, within tight budget and time constraints. I am proficient at managing happy and high performing data teams, all with specific skillsets and able to maintain their focus on desired outcomes to benefit the organisation.
am experienced at defining measurable outcomes and compiling Data Roadmaps for Senior Management Teams, having done this in multiple recent roles. More resent experience has been using the Microsoft Data Platforms (Azure, Databricks, Synapse & Power BI). I am Australian born but have lived and worked in the US and UK. I'd love a chance to help SCU make better data-driven decisions.
