    The right candidate for this role is customer focused, thorough, and can work with and across multi-disciplinary teams.  You will excel at performing root cause analysis, documenting your findings, and driving issues to resolution with permanent solutions (no band-aids!).  As a steward of our production systems, you will regularly be asked to prescribe thoughtful solutions to administering our Azure resources so that our platform continues to scale in a clean and sustainable fashion.

      • Configure, maintain and monitor database servers and processes, to ensure high levels of performance, availability, and security. 
      • Availability for critical/sev1 production issues to triage, analyze, solve, and correct issues in real time, providing problem resolution end-to-end.
      • SQL code review/performance tuning and schema refinement. 
      • Refine and automate processes to drive continuous improvement. 
      • Perform routine maintenance, scheduled maintenance and support release deployment activities. 
      • Share technical expertise and provide mentorship/cross-training to others.

    Who You Are - some of the essential things required to be successful in the role: 

      • 5+ years of experience as a DBA using Microsoft SQL Server. 
      • Strong knowledge of T-SQL for administration, user management and code review/performance tuning. 
      • Strong working knowledge of database high availability techniques. (SQL HA, Database Mirroring, Backups and Disaster recovery etc.)
      • Working knowledge of database products and capabilities, including data movement tools (e.g. SQL (IaaS/PaaS), Managed Instances, Data Factory, Cosmos etc.)

    Who You Are – it’s desirable if you have some of the following experience: 

      • Familiarity with other RDBMS technologies like MySQL. 
      • Microsoft Azure experience. 
      • Experience with scripting technologies (WMI, PowerShell). 
      • Experience with versioning database deployments and integration with application deployments.  
      • Experience working in Agile development environment.
