The Company

Oscar is pleased to introduce a new opportunity for a Database Administrator for a growing company based in the Northeast. A key point of this role is that you will be working with Azure, cloud hosted database systems but we don't need previous experience in this as they can offer on the job training.

We are looking for someone really who has been a DBA for 2-3 years ideally who would like to progress their career. Or we could consider someone from an application support background as long as those are SQL applications.

The position is offered on a hybrid basis with around 3 days a month in the office. We do recommend being able to drive given the office location.

The role

You will be joining a small team and report to the Lead DBA. The team is responsible for data architecture, security, movement and availability across their SQL Estate which has very recently been migrated to Azure.

This is a classic DBA role really; you will be looking after their databases as well as some SSIS and SSRS and you will see a bit of both of those within the role. They do have an ERP system which runs of their databases as well as their own software, so it is essential that they have good database systems.
