GCS Recruitment Specialists Ltd
Wokingham, UK

Contract Type
Full Time
Maths is definitely not my strong point, and tax & accounting may not be yours, but luckily as a Database Administrator for this software company based in Wokingham you won't need to be an expert in this field.

They have recently on-shored and ramped up their UK development teams to encourage better communication & collaboration, ultimately making the team more productive. As a company they are always looking to build more products and features and this has enabled them to do that and grow the team.

They're looking for a Database Administrator to join them; you'll be primarily responsible for their main product, with some crossover with internal teams. You'll need to have experience using PostgreSQL, they are currently using version 9 but will soon be upgrading to 11, in fact one of your first tasks will be to ensure all their customers can upgrade to version 11. Some knowledge of SQLite would be helpful but is not absolutely essential. The actual day 2 day admin would be a hybrid of around 80% Postgres & 20% SQLite. You need to know about SQL but don't need to be an expert. Anyone that has worked with relational databases would be a good fit.

The role comes with a hefty amount of responsibility (around 10k databases) so you need the ability to own that and work fairly autonomously. You won't be cast aside alone, but equally wont be micromanaged through your day.

The team is medium sized, friendly, with a mix of characters all pushing towards a common goal. They are genuinely growing as a business so longer term there will be progression opportunities for you.

If this sounds of interest and you'd like to learn more please either apply with your CV, or call me on .
