Our client's Database Engineering team maintains large-scale, highly transactional databases with a focus on high availability and performance. They have over 25k database instances that run on MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Db2, and SQL Server.

  • Educate application developers on writing efficient queries and database schemas
  • Develop and work on large scale open source telemetry systems to monitor SQL Server
  • Have experience in performance tuning, backup/recovery, and capacity planning
  • Write and maintain scripts to automate complex tasks


You need to have:

  • In-depth experience working with SQL Server and knowledge of internal architecture
  • Expert knowledge on Always-On technology
  • Strong Windows systems, clustering and scripting proficiency
  • Familiarity with backup and recovery strategies
  • Familiarity working with Linux
  • BA, BS, MS, PhD in Computer Science, Engineering or related technology field

We'd love to see:

  • Familiarity with other databases (MySQL / PostgreSQL)
  • Familiarity with Kubernetes
  • Proven experience in a programming and/or scripting language (e.g. Python, Go, Java, Ruby)
  • Open source experience is a plus (a well curated blog, upstream accepted contribution or community presence)
  • Experience with hardware benchmarking and performance optimization
