System Administrator with PostgreSQL experience

System administrator:

Command Prompt, Inc. is looking for an intermediate systems 
administrator and junior PostgreSQL administrator.

Command Prompt has provided PostgreSQL support, development, and hosting 
since 1997. We are looking for another person to join our stellar group 
of PostgreSQL systems experts.

We seek someone who has a deep knowledge of at least one UNIX-like 
system, and who knows how to manage heterogeneous systems well. You can 
demonstrate strong skills in basic systems administration. You have a 
clear understanding of how to administer several systems that are mostly 
the same, but that have small local differences. If you do not feel 
comfortable saying, "I'm not familiar with that in your environment," 
then reading the man page, and coming back with a test plan for 
deployment that will reveal problems with your strategy, this is not a 
job for you. The ability to imagine, propose, test, and deliver 
perfectly-integrated and easily-maintained solutions to users' problems 
is the key to success in this position. You work well in a team: you 
don't have to work 24 hours a day, because other people can always log 
into any system you maintain and know where everything is, how it got 
there, and how to add new things if they're needed.

You must know basic PostgreSQL administration, and understand how to set 
up, operate, and tune Postgres in elementary ways, such as installing 
from a package manager. You do not have to be a PostgreSQL guru, but if 
you are, that is a bonus.

You have systems administration capability with shell scripts, as well 
as either Perl or Python. As well as understanding (or quick to pick up) 
technologies such as DRBD and LVM2.

You have an interest in working on varied projects that use varied (and 
sometimes legacy) technologies.

Experience with Ruby on Rails web framework is a plus.

Command Prompt is a professional services company. You will be 
interfacing with customers, therefore customer service and 
professionalism is key.

Command Prompt employees usually work from their home offices. The 
position normally requires minimal travel. For this position, the 
successful candidate will be able to communicate effectively in English. 
English as a spoken second language is fine as long as the written 
skills are clear and effective.

This is a remote position and does not require residence in the United 

Applicants should send a resume to Angela Roberson, 
angela(at)commandprompt(dot)com, with the words "intermediate 
administrator" in the Subject line. Please include any text by way of a 
cover letter in the body of your email and not as a separate attachment.

We have a passion for data and quality and are seeking others who share our enthusiasm. 


We are constantly driven to work harder and learn new things not from some top-down initiative, but from the feeling that we owe it to our peers to keep up with their growth.

No one grows as fast as the teacher, so once you’re settled in you can expect to be called upon to mentor others, including future new hires.


We speak this language:

We work with the absolute cutting edge of database technology. Our tools include PostgreSQL, psql, pgAdmin, bash, your favorite editor, and custom in house frameworks—plus . As a solid performer and contributor to the team, you can expect to attend national conferences, networking with core contributors to the PostgreSQL database community and further enhancing your skill set.



This is where YOU come in:

As a Database Developer you will:

  • Work in a full-stack team on business-critical projects.
  • Challenge decisions about the data we need to collect and leverage.
  • Work with Stakeholders and other teams on building the right solution.
  • Create schema, data structure, and design components for storage of critical assets.
  • Build tools that others use to keep ahead of the industry and competition.


You’re right for this job if you:


  • Have a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering or Masters Degree in Computer Science or equivalent
  • Are a self-starter with a passion for databases
  • Have 1-5 years experience in a PostgreSQL, Oracle, or Sybase database environment
  • Have a solid understanding of SQL and database design
  • Have proven experience designing a transactional database in 3rd normal form
  • Have experience in a production database environment
  • Have experience with a stored procedure language
  • Have UNIX or Linux experience


Kudos to you if you:

  • Have experience working with PostgreSQL
  • Know Ruby on Rails
  • Know Perl, Python, or C
  • Have experience leading a team

Hiring Sr. PostgreSQL DBA (Chicago)

Please note: This is a Chicago on-site position and we will relocate the
right candidate from within the USA only.


Sr. PostgreSQL DBA
Reports to the Database Administrator Manager 

Our Database Administration team:

A diverse team of individuals at various levels of expertise ranging from 2 to 15 years with Postgres and
there are a few other Pg veterans elsewhere in the company for a combined total of at least 30 years Pg experience.

Why do we want you?...  This successful 10 year old company and its database systems are still growing and we
need your help to manage the 100+ node/50TB/bazillion TPS environment.

This is a near 100% Postgres shop tainted only by a few MS-SQL server instances that we were force to adopt due
to 3rd party software that wouldn't connect to Postgres.  Sad...

You will bring to the table a wizardry in managing large environments using expert level skill in
Pg/SQL/Bash/Python... etc.

The host platform is a farm of monster Debian Linux machines which are well run by our awesome system
engineering staff but your substantial experience in such a runtime environment will reduce our
dependence on them during most situations.

Our headquarters and where you'll be working are in an elegant Chicago loop high-rise, a few steps from
public transit and smack in the middle of everything.

The list of interesting projects is too big to itemize here but I'll get into it with you when we speak and
depending on your particular skills and our priorities.
