Job Description:


Our Database Engineering Team is transforming the way we manage commercial storage and database solutions for the entire organization.

We build and maintain large-scale, highly transactional databases using Open Source technology. On our team, you'll have the opportunity to support large and highly scalable database deployments. This is a relatively new self-service platform so you'll have numerous technical challenges to keep you busy while designing and automating complex engineering processes as part of DBaaS platform.

We'll trust you to:

  •  Design and automate complex processes and build custom database monitoring & alerting in Python
  •  Automate orchestration and configuration management using tools such as CHEF and SALT
  •  Handle performance tuning, break/fix, backup and recovery, capacity planning, database fail-over setup and management
  •  Develop best practices and repeatable procedures for deploying and scaling databases
  •  Provide production support for highly transactional databases servicing OLTP and DSS applications
  •  Ensure our production systems are stable and secure

You need to have:

  •  Excellent scripting skills and working knowledge of Python is a must
  •  Deep knowledge of orchestration and configuration management systems
  •  Experience in designing and automating complex processes
  •  Experience working with Open Source database systems such as MySQL and PostgreSQL
  •  Database software patch and version upgrades of business critical production environments
  •  Familiarity with backup and recovery strategies

We'd love to see:

  •  Experience integrating databases with orchestration and change management systems
  •  Experience working with PostgreSQL and Chef, Salt etc.
