MySQL Database Administrator - Challenging DBA Opportunity
Tackle an engaging and challenging position as a Database Administrator for LiveOps, provider of the only complete virtual contact center solution. If you're an experienced DBA that has an interest in learning MySQL systems, or are already a MySQL DBA with a desire to help drive a complex MySQL implementation in a unique way, this is your chance. In this role, you’ll come up with new ideas for how to best manage a large amount of data and have variety of work. We're a profitable and stable company, but we're also still small enough where you'll really make a difference as we push our company to the next level. Interesting technology, an environment based on teamwork, and the opportunity to work for a company that is the only one doing what we do all serve as icing on the cake for this position. If this is something that excites and drives you, apply today to join the LiveOps team.
As a LiveOps Database Administrator working from our Santa Clara, CA, office, your mission will be to dive into our MySQL database infrastructure. You will be on the team responsible for installation, configuration, optimization, automation, backup, recovery, upgrades, schema changes, SQL execution, and everything else. Your experience with production, development, and QA/test environments will be put to use as you become one of our go-to database resources. As a senior member of our team you'll also be involved in long term planning, tool development (which will include developing more complex automation scripts) and architectural discussions and decisions. For success in this role, you'll draw on the following skills and experiences that you've acquired to date:
* Senior level experience with database administration - MySQL experience preferred, but not required. If you have a strong background in another relational database system and want to expand into MySQL, please apply!
* Proficient in SQL (knowledge of MySQL quirks a plus)
* Proficient in at least one scripting language – Ruby, Python, Perl, etc.
* Experience working on a Unix/Unix-like platform - Linux preferred
* Performance tuning experience
We need our database systems to be available 24x7 so your ability to be on-call 50% of the time will be a requirement.
