MS SQL Server DBA/Systems Administrator

US Citizens only, Atlanta Metro preferred

We are looking for a highly competent and highly motivated individual to fill a role whose primary focus is that of a production DBA. The secondary focus of this role is that of systems administrator for our development and production environments.

Responsibilities include owning, tracking and resolving database related incidents and requests, reviewing service related reports (e.g: backups, processor/memory/storage usage, network security, server and DB maintenance, performance monitoring) daily to ensure issues are identified and resolved and working with the product development team to come up with strategic solutions to recurring problems.

This DBA/Systems Administrators role requires a service oriented mentality, high sense of ownership of problems and requests assigned, focus on managing and resolving issues in alignment with SLAs, establishing and maintaining communication with technology customers updating with status of requests, initiating and performing changes on production systems and proactively escalating any issues that cannot be resolved within the established time frames.

During the interview you will be asked to discuss a project or particular piece of technology that excites you and ask you questions on that project / technology in order to get a better understanding of the depth of your knowledge.

This role requires good communication skills. If you have a blog please pass along the URL so we can review your work. If you do not actively blog that is fine, but you should be prepared to show us an example of something you have written previously if we should happen to ask.
