SQL Server DBA ? Twickenham £50k - £60k ? flexible working

Avanti Recruitment is working with small but successful software house in the Twickenham area to recruit a SQL Server DBA to play a leading role in their development team. They currently run one large database with a large number of complex stored procedures and are looking for someone who can help to optimise performance and scale the database to ensure it can keep up with the growing demands from their customers. Their web based product is delivered as a software-as-a-service offering so performance and security is a key issue for their customers. You will be the only DBA in a team of Developers so will be highly influential in making all the technical decisions affecting their database technologies and being a small company there is very little red tape or bureaucracy involved. They offer a great working environment with flexible working practices and exposure to the latest technologies (soon moving to SQL Server 2016).

To be considered you will be an experience SQL Server DBA who can take ownership of all aspects of their database performance and security. Your experience should include monitoring, performance tuning, replication, mirroring, scaling of databases, security and data encryption. You must have excellent knowledge of Stored Procedures and indexing and can advise the team on how to optimise their performance. This will be a great opportunity for a mid level DBA who is looking to step up to a Senior DBA role as their environment is currently quite small with only one large database with hundreds of tables and millions of rows of data but there are many complex challenges in how they will partition and scale this moving forward as the demand for their services grows.

Experience with Windows Server administration, IIS and Powershell scripting for automation would all be highly beneficial but are not essential.

Salary £55,000 ? 60,000 + benefits + flexible working

Location: Twickenham + occasional work from home

Duration: Permanent
