Job Description

A multinational professional services firm based in the heart of London is looking for an articulate Senior SQL DBA to join its team.

In order to be suitable for this role you MUST have demonstrable expertise in the design, architecting, installation and support of large and complex clustered SQL database environments. In addition to this, you will have a very strong understanding of T/SQL and PowerShell scripting, allied to comprehensive knowledge of query execution plans, query optimization and performance tuning.

You will manage all aspects of database administration in a SQL server clustered environment including configuration, patching, documentation, backups, optimization, maintenance, and monitoring of SQL Server databases. You will be the sole DBA in Europe but will work within a large geographically dispersed DBA team that employs a follow the sun support model. You will remotely support multiple data centres around the world and will join the database support rota, so a flexible approach to work is a prerequisite.

In addition to extensive experience supporting large scale production database environments, any experience with SSIS, SSRS and SSAS would be advantageous to your application, as would prior experience with SolarWinds, SQL Sentry and NoSQL.

This is an excellent opportunity for a proven Production DBA to join a highly successful company that is going through an exciting growth phase and offers a range of attractive benefits.
