We are a multi-tenant SaaS company running on Azure competing with companies more than 10 times our size. We’re successful because we hire only the best and brightest. In our results-oriented environment, every engineer can contribute ideas that get heard and implemented. We believe that technical decisions are best made when we have input from those who are closest to the problem, and encourage engineers to think critically about how best to design solutions that satisfy the mission of the team.

About the role

  • Participate in the design and architecture of the database environments
  • Provide strategic and tactical input and guidance on database/query design during feature development
  • Work directly with software engineering teams to identify, troubleshoot, and resolve issues as they arise
  • Utilize strategies such as query and index tuning, resource scaling, and code changes
  • Work with the software engineering teams to design and implement zero-downtime data purging strategies
  • Reduce downtime of applications by enhancing database deployment operations
  • Baseline system performance and monitor for deviation, recommending and implementing improvements to poorly performing queries and resource constrained areas
  • Ensure database server topology, configuration, and maintenance are designed and executed to meet SLA objectives and best practices
  • Automate creation and configuration of all SQL Server instances
  • Provide technical mentoring on database solutions
  • Opportunities to work with Elasticsearch

About you

  • BS degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related Science curriculum
  • 8+ years working as T-SQL Developer and/or Database Engineer
  • Experience with query tuning and troubleshooting
  • Experience with installing, configurating, and monitoring SQL server databases
  • Experience with Infrastructure automation: OctopusDeploy, Terraform, PowerShell, etc.
  • Cloud experience (Azure preferred)
  • Ability to participate in rotating on-call schedule and occasional off-hours work
