Why this DBA position?

1) This particular environment allows the ability for a SQL DBA to work in an environment with 900 SQL Databases with Petabytes of data (the largest database houses 5 Terabytes of data – also have 4 nodes that have 2 TB each), so anyone looking for enterprise experience will find very few environments that can offer what his one can.
2) Because of the nature of this companies work, this company can’t afford to work with older technologies. Keeping up with what’s current is absolutely critical, so this person will always be expanding their skill set.
3) On the benefits side of things, this company offers 30 days of PTO, some of the best healthcare benefits in Nashville, high matching 401(k), 10 paid holidays, among others.
What will I be doing and who will I be working with?

Do you enjoy a flexible working environment?

Most DBA environments are pretty stringent on working hours. Would you enjoy a little more flexibility? After a few weeks, working out a schedule that fits you is allowed here. Whether it’s coming in earlier, say 7:30 and leaving earlier, or coming in later to avoid traffic at 9:30 and leaving later, this can be customized for you in this environment. Also, the team is working out a rotating work from home schedule for a day every other week. Lastly, this manager is not a micro-manager. If a repair man needs to come or you need to be home for a package to be delivered, working from home can be accommodated.
