If Data is the new gold and you are the King of Data… what does that make you? Not sure, but you are certainly a DBA! And if you are the type of DBA that is not married to a particular technology, likes to get their hands dirty and is interested in everything related to databases then you might be what we are looking for to scale our DBA team.
? The DBA Team owns many core database clusters in Production as well several other instances on a wide range of technologies.
? You will work alongside our Senior DBA and our Operations Manager (who you will report to) in a small and agile team that owns their direction of travel.
? Your primary focus will be scalability and performance of our core DB clusters, exploring new ways of consolidating data sources and making more data available to more people at Wandera and last but not least supporting our Dev Teams as they build the new features that will shape the future of Wandera.
? And if you are not scared of doing some coding, you can get involved in how we build and monitor our DB, using technologies like Terraform and Prometheus.
We’re looking for:
? No challenge is too big or too small for you. You get excited at the prospect of a complex project and at the same time you understand that small improvements can sometimes make a massive difference.
? You hold yourself and your team to a high standard when working in production.
? You have some cloud experience, ideally with AWS.
? You have experience with at least 2 different DB technologies as well as awesome SQL skills and ideally NoSQL as well. We use Vertica, Mongo, PostgreSQL, MySQL and RDS. But we won’t frown upon you if Oracle is your cup of tea.
? Exposure with Big Data and column based datastore technologies will be a nice bonus point
