I just need clarification on these, I am a Data Engineer on a startup team and Im also a certified MapR Cluster Administrator. Basically not a very good admin but more off I understand the basics and can troubleshoot some stuff. The thing is I learned this stuff because we need someone to create/configure the environment of MapR. 


Now Im generally want to learn more about data engineer, data pipeline, connectivity and ETL stuff. Is it really required for a data engineer to be also the administrator ? or that would be a seperate entity? 


Because for now, If we needs to implements things. That would be me making the MapR environment from scratch.
