Job description

You will be joining a dynamic team of 4 experienced DBAs in the company’s London office.

A major SQL Server 2008 R2 to 2014 upgrade is on the cards. They are also looking to adopt some new database technologies like NoSQL.

Our immediate need is for a SQL Server professional who can demonstrate technical excellence, expertise and mastery of the core components of SQL Server. Desirable would be someone already experienced with AWS and MySQL, but this is not essential and we will be providing a fantastic opportunity for someone to develop excellence in these areas.

· In-depth understanding of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 and later versions like SQL 2014 and 2016

If you have in-depth experience of SQL Server internals, performance optimisation, advanced problem resolution and looking to reach new heights in your career as part of a thriving DBA team, please get in touch.
