The Company
This long established and successful UK based company is a Gold-accredited IBM Premier Business Partner. It specialises in providing consultancy services and support for the IBM Maximo EAM software product and maintains a pool of highly experienced and capable consultants fully conversant with IBM Maximo and its functionality, capabilities and opportunities for customisation to meet business needs.
The Company is an excellent employer demonstrated by the large number of long-term employees in the business. It offers a generous benefits package including annual bonus and non-contributory pension scheme.
The Position
The business is now looking to hire an experienced DB2 Database Administrator with an excellent track record deploying, supporting, and managing databases on premise and in the cloud.
The current data platform estate is a mix of Oracle 12c, IBM DB2, and SQL Server. This role would lend itself well to someone who is willing to learn new skills outside of the database arena, as alongside your DBA duties, you will be working on a host of technologies within the infrastructure team.
Specific Responsibilities will include;
- Industry standard, and general DBA responsibilities across a portfolio of supported databases
- Work with production databases for continual optimal performance tuning, standardisation, troubleshooting, design, and architecture
- Patching/updating/upgrading our hosted cloud solution database infrastructure as part of a preventative maintenance schedule.
- Security best practice, working with the existing ISO27001 framework
- Provide advanced troubleshooting assistance to application administrators and application developers, including code reviews and best practice advice
- Work with 3rd party suppliers to quickly resolve technical issues with the database and other systems.
- Perform installations and patches of IBM WebSphere, HTTP Server and IBM Maximo software using IBM middleware and multiple database technologies (SQL, Oracle, DB2, MySQL)
- Provide specific DB2 out of hours support to both internal and external clients.
The Candidate
As a potentially suitable candidate you must have demonstrable working experience as a DBA with previous experience of DB2 tools, DB2 monitoring and system performance (Data Management Console). You should have in-depth knowledge in the structure and implementation of databases (Oracle/DB2/SQL databases in particular) and working knowledge of Windows Server operating systems.
Ideally you should have good T-SQL, performance tuning and index maintenance experience with previous experience of data migration projects.
The business is expanding rapidly and this role represents an excellent career opportunity
