Who’s Hiring in the Microsoft Data Platform Community? October 2023 Edition

Who's Hiring

Is your company hiring for a database position as of October 2023? 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.

  • Do you enjoy juggling cats while someone squirts them with water? Are you the kind of person who doesn’t run away screaming when things go wrong in SQL Server? Can you fake laughter when you hear “Dad” jokes?

Along with other Support team members, you will provide daily monitoring, health checks, proactive and reactive support to clients in a wide variety of industries. We monitor client databases to ensure availability and performance, with a heavy focus on client service first, effective communication, and teamwork.

    You’ll gradually be assigned multiple clients and be responsible for first-level triage, support, review, and daily communication to clients. You will also be mentored by the Senior DBAs at Straight Path, who are MVPs, former MVPs, authors, bloggers, and trainers who enjoy sharing their skills with clients and fellow team members. You will have advancement opportunity to Database Administrator, and even Senior Database Administrator roles in time.

    Benefits include ample PTO, 401(k) match, profit sharing, Health/Dental/Vision, Sabbatical after 5 years of service in addition to PTO, We shut down during the week before Christmas and New Years so that doesn’t eat into PTO.

    E-mail resumes to mike@straightpathsql.com and mention the Brent Ozar job post in the subject line.

    • Sounds fantastic…..love your style.

    • WOW sounds like an awesome opportunity. I’d go back to being a Junior, to be able to work with such an amazing, supportive team. Wishing I was a US citizen ?

    • Yous guys sound like my kind of people! I like to be the one squirting water at the person juggling the cats. Too bad the A in your DBA doesn’t stand for Analyst – that’s the puzzle my hearts sings to.
