We're running an Online Hiring Event this Saturday, to hire Database Chief Software Architects ($100K/yr).
Online Hiring Events are live forums designed to enable you to understand the role and requirements through an interactive Q&A session followed by a self-directed testing process. The testing takes between 3-5 hours to complete. It’s worth taking the time to finish all the tests because we evaluate every single complete application to find the top talent.
This event will include all testing required to apply for the role. Upon grading the tests, and if you advance, we will set up an interview with the hiring manager.
We are looking for experienced Database Chief Architects that will work to assure the overall availability and performance of production services against availability and quality SLAs.
You will respond to alerts or events that impair or degrade services and could cause outages that impact availability. You will identify root causes, single points of failure, and eliminate them through remediation and execution.
A successful candidate should be able to proactively plan, implement, and maintain DB operational services, backup, and recovery; scaling and capacity planning activities, and administration and management of all database software patches and upgrades.
This role will also support the database application programming activities of engineering or professional services staff as needed. You will work in day-to-day troubleshooting of application issues and data fixes. You must be able to handle heavy workloads, multi-task efficiently and be able to switch gears in a moment’s notice.
