Database Engineer

Seeking a database engineer to join a niche team responsible for designing, supporting, and administering distributed databases for both strategic and tactical trading and research initiatives. In this role, you will work closely with development groups on schema, index, and query design to support application development. You will also lead performance monitoring and fine tuning for optimal performance and collaborate with financial experts and software engineers to design data models. Using a combination of Windows and UNIX based applications, including Microsoft SQL Server, as well as several proprietary in-house file and database systems distributed over multiple sites, you will take ownership of a wide variety of technical projects.

Successful candidates will have experience: implementing, testing, and fixing defects in physical production databases; planning and implementing backup and recovery procedures; and working with data manipulation and database query languages (e.g., T-SQL, PL-SQL, MS). Scripting experience on Windows and UNIX is a definite advantage, and familiarity with highly concurrent database access is paramount. The ideal candidate will be able to input and understand database identifiers in complex distributed environments, determine the optimum values of the physical data base parameters, create database management system documentation, and automate processes already in place. Demonstrated achievement producing database wrappers and stored procedures is also desired. Strong oral and written communication skills are essential, as are talents for planning projects, advocating ideas, and multi-tasking.
