Who’s Hiring in the Database Community? February 2022 Edition

Who's Hiring

The pandemic is causing so many folks to rethink what they do for a living, where they do it, who they do it for, and in light of yesterday’s salary survey results, how much money they earn doing it. It’s been really fulfilling to hear stories of employers who found candidates here, and candidates who found a new opportunity. So let’s keep ‘er going for a while longer.

Is your company hiring for a database position as of February 2022? Do you wanna work with the kinds of people who read this blog? Let’s set up some rapid networking here. If your company is hiring, leave a comment.

The rules:

  • Your comment must include the job title, and either a link to the full job description, or the text of it. It doesn’t have to be a SQL Server DBA job, but it does have to be related to databases. (We get a pretty broad readership here – it can be any database.)
  • An email address to send resumes, or a link to the application process – if I were you, I’d put an email address because you may want to know that applicants are readers here, because they might be more qualified than the applicants you regularly get.
  • Please state the location and include REMOTE and/or VISA when that sort of candidate is welcome. When remote work is not an option, include ONSITE.
  • Please only post if you personally are part of the hiring company—no recruiting firms or job boards. Only one post per company. If it isn’t a household name, please explain what your company does.
  • Commenters: please don’t reply to job posts to complain about something. It’s off topic here.
  • Readers: please only email if you are personally interested in the job.

If your comment isn’t relevant or smells fishy, I’ll delete it. If you have questions about why your comment got deleted, or how to maximize the effectiveness of your comment, contact me.

Each month, I publish a new post in the Who’s Hiring category here so y’all can get the latest opportunities.

If you want to be notified as people leave new jobs here, there’s a “subscribe without commenting” option where you leave a comment. I don’t use that for subscribing you to anything else.

  • Become a Database Administrator @myWorld and assist the development teams in building and enhancing our SaaS solutions. Junior and Senior positions available.

    Location: Graz, Austria
    Remote is an option if you mention you read Brent’s blog in the application.

    • is this only for Austrian-based citizens? I am located in Cluj, Romania, so I can work remotely, but I don’t speak German, unfortunately.

  • We’re hiring at Medalogix! I believe we are in a unique position where we are in the process of transitioning technologies and building out a new platform. We have a legacy platform that is built on SQL Server instances (2017/2019) that are running on EC2 in AWS with SSIS packages that run our ETL’s. We’re in the process of building out a new data platform in Azure but utilizing Snowflake with Scala (soon to be Python) to run our data pipelines.

    An ideal candidate would be someone with a background of SQL Server who can help maintain our legacy system for the next few years, but also is looking to expand their skillset and learn new technologies like Snowflake and Python.

    About Medalogix, we are a Nashville based company that focuses on using machine learning and predictive analytics to build products that server the home health and hospice industry. Our purpose is to keep patients at home and out of the hospital and to make sure that patients get the right care at the right time. What I think makes Medalogix unique is that data is our core business and a top priority, it’s not a byproduct of the business. Moreover, this is not an IT support role, but a role where you would be taking part in building products.

    This would be a remote position but could have some travel to Nashville once a quarter or so.

    Feel free to reach out if you have questions or are interested!

    Job Title: DBA/Data Engineer
    Company : Waverton Investment Management
    Contact: gdraper@waverton.co.uk
    Location : Remote, within GMT +/- 2

    The Team is responsible for building and maintaining critical elements of our system architecture including, Client Reporting, Client Portal, Performance Engine and Portfolio Management system.

    Our Data Estate is also growing with increasing importance to every area of the business and there is a fantastic opportunity to develop this even further.

    We continue to push all of our systems forward, including innovating as we transition to being cloud-native in #Azure using some of the most cutting edge technology and methods available.

    We don’t currently have a dedicated DBA and are looking for someone to come in and take ownership of our ever-growing data estate. We see this role being hands-on initially to get things setup they way you’d like, then over time shifting to more reactive with a focus on data engineering. The Development team is currently the gatekeeper of our data estate and a contention point. We’re looking to move to a world where we can provide the tools to safely self-service many of our current data requests and allow end-users to make informed decisions based on our data.

    To give an idea of where we are and what you would be taking forwards

    • We use SQL Server 2017 for all our relational stores.
    • We have a couple of smaller non-relational stores and use CosmosDB/Mongo for those.
    • Our current architecture for our two core systems is
    o Production 2 Node Failover Cluster Instance
    o Staging/Dev On Separate servers.
    o Log shipped single node DR instance.
    o We use Ola’s scripts for backups/maintenance and have the full Redagate toolchain for monitoring/development.

    We’re looking for this role to drive change to our current estate to align with modern best practices. We are open to looking into Availability Groups, SQL Server 2019 and PaaS offerings as we work towards our Azure migration.
