FULL DISCUSSION
 

First time I've heard of that role! What does a database integrator do?

 

That's an "explain it to the CEO" phrase I made up to describe my job.

On paper, I'm a "developer," but I think "getting data from point A to point B upon request" sums up a lot of my day-to-day life!

Sometimes I do it with SQL or PL/SQL or Salesforce Apex+SOQL.

Sometimes I do it with fancy or not-so-fancy ETL tools.

Sometimes I click a bunch of "delete" buttons over and over again.

Sometimes I do the "transform" step of "extract, transform, load" (ETL) processes in Excel or with a script on my hard drive.

"Integrations" & "integrator" sounded like the right word to put it all together. :)
