Your responsibilities will include providing support for the existing Postgres database environment, as well as strategising, planning, and executing the migration of the database environment to AWS (utilising RDS, Aurora, Redshift, and potentially additional services).

As a team leader, you will oversee a small team of DBAs. Your responsibilities include offering guidance, supervision, and mentorship to the DBAs within the team, and reporting on the progress of projects in which the team is involved.

  • Demonstrate experience with continuous deployment and integration tools such as GitLab CI and Liquibase
  • Flexibility to adapt swiftly to changing priorities within a dynamic environment, performing effectively under pressure, and setting the pace as a design leader in project delivery.

Our client believes that everyone has ideas to contribute to their objective of continuous improvement. Hence, you are expected to take ownership, bring ideas to the table, and inspire others in the team to do the same.

  • Demonstrate a strong commitment to achieving high-quality results in all your projects.
  • Exhibit confidence in navigating challenging conversations and situations, collaborating with every department within the company to deliver the best product for users.
  • Possess a deep passion for the craft, a love of technology, and a self-starting attitude.
