Stupid Stuff My Recruiter Says

Immediately after I wrote my previous post on recruiters and Power BI, I got this gem. If this keeps up, I am going to have to keep this as a regular feature on this blog.

Position : Power BI Developer

Roles & Responsibilities

  • Designing data integration from multiple systems into analytical data models.
  • Writing relational database SQL queries
  • Devising and promoting creative data visualizations in Tableau
  • Developing tools and dashboards using MS SQL Server and BI Visualization tools such as Tableau to provide real-time insights to business data
  • Debugging, monitoring and troubleshooting existing BI solutions and visualization

Maybe I am being too picky, but why would you want a Power BI developer to create Tableau reports?

  1. Brent Ozar has a great blog post from earlier this year about why there are such goofy job descriptions sometimes.

    If I had to make a charitable guess, I would hone in on that last line:
    “Debugging, monitoring and troubleshooting existing BI solutions and visualization”

    It wouldn’t surprise me if they are a Microsoft heavy shop that is just starting to pivot into Tableau. So even though the new work is in Tableau, there are all these legacy reports in Power BI. That’s the most charitable guess I can make here.
