Projects the candidate will be working on:

  • This is a senior level SQL DBA position, that supports our business critical applications – Facets, APM, Touchworks, Macess, etc.
  • As support is required to be available 24x7, the math doesn't work for just 4 resources, but they are doing the best they can even with some signs of complaint and burnout due to the workload.
  • Risk:
    • Applications that simply can’t go down require a robust support team of engineers.
    • The Nevada Market’s unique implementation of these applications makes them unable to be broadly supported by corporate IT resources, so we must keep staffing at least at minimal support levels.

Primary Skills:
  • MSSQL DBA with specific emphasis on Performance Tuning, Always On, SQL Replication, scripting/queries, and Design. And SSIS and SSRS would be a big asset.

Top Requirements:

  • 5+ preferred, but there may be a candidate with strong aptitude that only has 3 years’ experience, for example.
  • Performance Tuning, Always On, SQL Replication both initial install/config as well as on-going support.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Manage SQL Server databases through multiple product lifecycle environments, from development to mission-critical production systems
  • Configure and maintain database servers and processes, including monitoring of system health and performance, to ensure high levels of performance, availability, and security.
  • Independently analyze, solve, and correct issues in real time
  • Refine and automate regular processes, track issues, and document changes
  • Assist developers with complex query tuning and schema refinement
