PostgreSQL Database Administrator (DBA)

* Enjoy providing support and advice for developers writing applications that access the databases? * Want to build and manage solutions that provide infrastructure for deploying, managing, and maintaining terabytes of databases? * Prefer to understand how something works, versus simply being content with knowing it does work?

* Database design, diagnosis, tuning, and troubleshooting (primary job functions) * Software development (for interfacing with developers, nothing beats having walked in the other guy's shoes) * Configuration management (for automating some types of deploy/maintenance work) * Bottleneck analysis, in both physical and virtual environments * Recovery planning, from the database to the application

* Excellent internal customer service * Holistic problem solving * Sense of responsibility and follow-through * Can-do attitude * An eye for extrapolating possible side-effects from a known event, and vice versa * More collaborative than heroic in problem-solving * Enough experience and maturity to enjoy getting to shed turf-guarding, rejoice that you are not expected to know everything, and get straight problem-solving within a cross-functional team * Help teammates with requirements analysis by asking probative questions when given a vague request

* Care and feeding of database systems, primarily Postgres, some Oracle and SQL Server. * Must have or be willing to learn a deep understanding of Postgres behavior and internals. * Work with development teams to design, implement, troubleshoot, monitor, and improve corporate projects.

* 1-3 years relevant experience. * Experienced Linux user. * Database administration (Postgres strongly preferred), including: installation, initialization, authentication, catalog navigation, query tuning, system tuning, resource contention analysis, backup and recovery, standby, replication, etc. * Database design, to support developers in making scalable decisions in schema design and data processing models. * Some experience with C, Perl and/or Bash is HIGHLY desirable.
