Re: Startup in San Francisco Bayarea is seeking for Database Kernel Engineer - Ok. I have a job available that pays between $150K and $300K.


Here is the other one.  The really nice thing about this situation is that there are no VC's breathing down
everyone's necks.  If you like to write a lot of code and solve really intense problems, this is a great
opportunity.  The last thing is that for this particular position, you would really be a critical part of
the design  and development of their strategies and systems.  This is going to be a great position for
someone who feels comfortable being an intellectual  leader.  Lastly, I have seen situations where they
were willing to change course when a better solution was offered.  I think these guys from the top on down are
flexible and really do want to hear from the team members.

Hope this all helps,

Junior DBA - West Los Angeles, CA

Good afternoon,

TigerLead in West Los Angeles is looking for a Junior PostgreSQL Database Administrator. We're a fast-growing real-estate company, and we need another DBA to join our Ops team. This is a full-time position - see the details below and check out our careers site to apply.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions. Thank you!


Position Title: Junior PostgreSQL DBA

Job Type: Full-time

Location: West Los Angeles, CA (no remote)

Company: TigerLead, a division of Move.com

Position Summary
TigerLead is one of the most heavily-trafficked networks of real estate sites on the web, and we are dedicated to helping home buyers and sellers connect with the best realtors.

This is an exciting opportunity for a detail-oriented junior level PostgreSQL DBA to work full time in a startup-like atmosphere within a small but profitable and fast-growing division of Move Inc. (located in West Los Angeles), where your contributions will make a direct impact on clients’ success.

Our engineering team is a fun and passionate group. It already includes a Database Administrator, but we need your help in order to support requests from both the tech team and other parts of the business. This is a junior-level position, but it offers an excellent opportunity to learn from our DBA and to take initiative.

We do agile development based on Scrum, so an ability to communicate directly and effectively with stakeholders (both verbally and in writing) is essential. For the same reason, experience with agile practices, quick iterations, and integration of regular feedback is a big plus.

  • Be the first point of contact for solving problems in the staging databases.
  • Handle DML and DDL requests for business stakeholders and for other members of the Tech team, with minor supervision from the database administrator. Examples of common requests include business intelligence reports, new tables and columns, and ad hoc bulk data updates.
  • Help troubleshoot and optimize SQL.
  • Install and upgrade databases on non-critical servers.
  • Escalate requests when necessary to the Database Administrator.

Location and Hours
The position is located in our Los Angeles office (at 1554 S. Sepulveda Blvd). Sorry, we cannot consider teleworking for this position at the time. This is a full-time (40 hours per week M-F) position, and we will need your work hours to overlap with 9am-3pm Pacific Time.

  • At least one year of experience writing DDL/DML statements for a group of developers.
  • Proficiency with common SQL syntax.
  • Great troubleshooting and problem-solving skills, as well as an attention to detail.
  • A desire to learn quickly from a top-notch DBA, and to use the feedback to further develop skills.
  • Keen interest in a DBA career.
  • Comfortable working in a Linux environment.
  • Team-first attitude, excellent communication and interpersonal skills; enjoy collaborating with others.
Big plus:
  • Experience with PostgreSQL.
  • Experience managing your own database instance, even in a non-work environment.
  • Familiarity with Perl or a similar language (Ruby, Python, etc), to be able to make minor changes to existing Perl code.
  • A good grasp of source code management fundamentals (we use git and GitHub).

Additional Benefits
  • A kitchen stocked with snacks, energy drinks, and more.
  • A dog-friendly environment.
  • A prime location just off the 405 in West LA.

Help! We need a postgres expert for at least a few weeks

Postgres Experts,

I'm an engineer working for a successful, rapidly-growing company. My
team is replacing some MySQL/HBase code with a RESTful service to
persist customer data, such that it can be queried rapidly in various
ways. We're using Postgres for the persistence layer, since it's
supposed to be pretty fast.

Our decoupled service is written in Java (about 15k lines of code,
plus test code). It runs under Tomcat, using Spring4. We use some
hibernate and some Jooq. The problem we are solving is appropriate for
relational databases. The code is only about six months old, and it is
NOT a mess.

We have five datacenters around the world. We've set up Postgres in
High Availability mode, and are actually, just this week, starting to
turn it on for select customers. But it's struggling, we're having
performance problems. And we don't have a postgres expert in-house
right now.

We'll fly you out to Provo, UT, from wherever you are, and give you a
place to stay, and piles of money. (Details of the arrangement aren't
up to me, I'm just an engineer trying to get stuff working, calling
out for help.)

If this might work for you, please send an email message to my
personal address, including your qualifications as a postgres expert.
Ask me any questions you might have.
