Job posting...

Hello.  I would like this position included in your next mailing.

 

Rackspace is a highly awarded and respected managed web hosting company. We earned our place by approaching what we do from our customer’s point-of-view. We do more than just expertly support the technologies we provide (the servers, the devices, the data centers and the network); we also expertly support our customers. We call it Fanatical Support™. It’s a novel idea and it seems to work really well for all involved – our customers, our company and our employees.

Home to more than 1,600 Rackers (known to the outside world as Rackspace employees), we’ve nearly doubled in size during the past year – that’s how rapidly we’re expanding. And the growth has happened without us acquiring other companies or being acquired by another company. If you’re paying attention, this kind of growth means that we’re hiring all the time.

But just because we need to hire people, doesn’t mean we’ll let anyone in the place. There are a few prerequisites. You have to be pretty darn sharp. You need to like working hard. You should believe in Rackspace and Fanatical Support and in yourself. And you better love what you do, because we do.

Our Core Values are:

1.    FANATICAL SUPPORT™ in all we do

2.    RESULTS first: substance over flash

3.    Embrace CHANGE for excellence

4.    PASSION for our work

5.    Keep our PROMISES

6.    We treat each other like FRIENDS and FAMILY

The primary responsibility of this position is the administration of PostgreSQL databases including monitoring, optimization, backup/restore, data migration, deployment to multiple environments and disaster recovery. In addition, the database administrator must be adept at database design and recommend best practices for Rackspace. The ability to manage multiple tasks and priorities efficiently and simultaneously is important.

 

Responsibilities:           

Our databases are high volume transactional databases that are large in size and are mission critical. The ability to troubleshoot performance issues and problems with PostgreSQL are of paramount importance. Excellent communication skills are needed. The ability to express ideas clearly and work well on a team or individually is highly desired.

Job Requirements:

·                       3+ years DBA experience (at least 2 years with PostgreSQL)

·                       Excellent communication skills; particularly the ability to convey ideas, and understand the ideas of others

·                       Understands complex database and server technologies

·                       Knowledgeable in complex troubleshooting techniques at the server and database level.

·                       Query optimization. Good programming skills preferred.

·                       Knowledgeable in setting up failover (FO) and high availability (HA) setups.

·                       Database Mirroring, replication and schema design.

·                       Light Linux system administration experience is preferred.

 

Education:

·                       Bachelors degree in Computer Science or related field or equivalent experience preferred.
