SQL Server DBA

Back To Job Board

If you’re an experienced SQL Server DBA, keen to work in a really complex database environment – one that encompasses interesting tech such as AWS, Redis, InfluxDB/Prometheus, Elasticsearch, etc. – as well as the traditional Microsoft/SQL Server technologies, then this could be the role for you!

What will I be doing?
As part of an international team, you will be working on the implementation, configuration, maintenance and performance of the database servers used by the customers of an online platform, processing huge volumes of transactional/ecommerce data. Each customer has their own database, so you will be working with a couple of thousand databases of varying size and complexity.

Your role is to help my client manage and distribute information, by using technologies that allow them to develop the most efficient and innovative methods for storing and protecting data in their system.

About the company
With offices in West Sussex, you will be working from home, but there will be opportunities for occasional meet-ups. Along with a competitive basic salary, you can also expect a pension contribution, private medical cover, life assurance and 25 days’ holiday in addition to all public holidays.

The ideal candidate will have…

  • Strong SQL Server skills, ideally coupled with some experience of PostgreSQL
  • “Traditional” DBA skills such as database server installation and configuration, database backup and restoration and performance tuning.
  • Database schema, table and index design.
  • Experience with high transaction OLTP environments would be highly beneficial, as would an associated understanding of scalability and the handling of seasonal variation and load spikes.
  • Windows server operating systems knowledge and the ability to perform Windows Server Administrator operational duties as required to support the running of the databases.
