hiring Junior DBA / sysadmin at Craftsy in Denver


Shorter, less HR-esque job description:

We're looking for someone with Unix/Linux sysadmin experience who is interested in pursuing a DBA career track.  DBA experience is great but we intend to provide training in this area.  As career tracks go, DBA can be difficult to crack into, especially outside the Oracle/Microsoft space, so this is a very valuable opportunity. (We are open to candidates with more experience as well, don't be shy.)

We use mainly Postgres 9 and AWS Redshift, plus AWS DynamoDB, Apache Kafka and a tiny amount of MySQL.  We run 100% of our production infrastructure in AWS and always have.  This is a great chance to work and gain experience in a cloud-native shop.

Craftsy is a cool place to work and Denver is an awesome city to live in!  If you think you might be who we're looking for, apply at the link above or shoot me an email if you have questions.

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.
