SQL Server Junior DBA

Working in the Data Team alongside our Senior DBA, you will be jointly responsible for all our data environments including Production, Development and Staging across a mixture of cloud and on-premises deployments.

This role is an excellent opportunity for someone in the early days of their DBA career.

This could be a Developer who wants to make the jump to DBA, or someone who has been an “accidental” DBA/Jack-of-all-trades who now wants to specialise. As this is a service based role, excellent people and communication skills are a must.

Your skills and abilities:

  • Good Knowledge of SQL Server 2014 onwards
  • Backup and Restore
  • Database Monitoring
  • Security – SQL Logins, roles and permissions
  • BAU – Routine service requests
  • High Availability and Disaster Recovery – Clustering, Always-on, Replication and Log-Shipping
  • Locking, Blocking and Deadlock resolution/investigation
  • On-Call Rota
  • Performance and Query-Tuning
  • SSIS, SSRS and SSAS Knowledge

Things we’d love it if you had:

  • Knowledge of non-SQL Server DBs (Aurora, MySQL Couchbase)
  • Redgate, SQL Sentry or 3rd Party Monitoring Software
  • CDC and ETL

Other essential things to note:

  • Our Head of Data is a monster on the ping-pong table
  • We’re all about autonomy and responsibility. You’ll be supported but not micro-managed
  • The office collectively has a sweet tooth – be prepared to eat cakes, sweets and all manner of treats
