Lead Database Administrator (Oracle, MySQL, AWS)

Permanent  |  £85000.00 - £95000 per annum  |  Greater London  |  London

Linux  •  Infrastructure  •  Leadership  •  DevOps

You're a natural leader, but ideas are being stiffed, your leadership is being quashed. Maybe you have taken a team as far as you can. Maybe you want to lead a bigger team, or maybe there is someone else in your way, who has no intention of leaving. Maybe the technical direction just doesn't align with your opinions.

Whatever your situation, this Lead DBA position at one of the world's top 5 eCommerce sites with over 26 million monthly visitors, could be for you. This is an opportunity for a strong leader to take on the management of a globally distributed database engineering team.

You will have an opportunity to utilise your experience in databases such as Oracle, MySQL AWS RDS, Cassandra, PostgresSQL and more, whilst heading up the newly formed DBA team. The company are moving away from having embedded DBAs in product teams, to a new separate Database Administration function. You would be using your leadership skills and detailed knowledge of large complex database environments to help ensure this company remains the global leader in their market.

This 'hands on' managerial role is the perfect progression for a senior profile with design, build and maintenance experience across database engineering. The job would see you lead the team on technical matters and architecture decisions specific to database technologies. This would include plenty of opportunities to use your knowledge of CMS tools such as Chef, as well as Agile environments (scrum/Kanban) and migrations to public cloud technologies (specifically AWS).

Your expertise will be required to provide the team with an outstanding level of database knowledge to facilitate high quality work and enable successful database operation, implementation, upgrade and migration.

So if you are looking to put those leadership skills to better use, or maybe to upscale the size of team you're managing then look no further.
