  • Collaborate on database releases and execute related deployments.
  • Contribute to end-to-end solutions emphasizing performance, high availability, and growth needs.
  • Create tools and automation to improve database administration and management efficiency.
  • Participate in R&D projects to enhance database infrastructure security, performance, manageability, and availability.
  • Proactively identify, diagnose, and solve complex security issues.
  • Work directly with Amazon as needed to resolve issues and collaborate on improving our infrastructure related to database.

Education and experience:

  • 10+ years of experience in administering MySQL/PostgreSQL/Aurora databases in both production and non-production environments.
  • Knowledge and experience in using AWS cloud services, particularly RDS/Aurora.

  • Ability to write code in Python or Bash scripting to automate tasks and processes.
  • Familiar with AWS command line tooling.

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field.

Other Skills:

  • Positive attitude, collaborative teamwork, passion for best design and coding practices, and a desire to continually expand knowledge within this field.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Ability to work in a team environment, make sound technical decisions, and maintain a high level of quality standards.
  • Hands-on technical experience and the ability to solve complex problems with attention to detail.
