Director of Information Services for Homeless Service Agency (Seattle, WA)

Hi.  Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC) has an opening for its
Director of Information Services position.  We are one of the largest
providers of homeless services in the Pacific Northwest, and
particularly focus on serving chronically homeless adults who are
mentally ill or chemically addicted, or otherwise disabled or
vulnerable.  We serve over 6,500 people a year, have approximately 300
full-time staff, including 7 in the Information Services department.

DESC makes heavy use of free/open source software, and our main data
systems all use Postgres.  We have developed a (PHP) web app called
CHASERS that is used for agency management, and yeaterday released it as 
open source software.

I think DESC is an interesting place to work in IT, particularly if
you're interested in postgres and open source stuff.  A link to our jobs

Thanks!

Ken Tanzer

No, but I did ask the poster to self-moderate behaviour in future.
(Asking maintainers to moderate every post will just mean that posts
take longer to show up.)  The OP agreed.

End Point Corporation is hiring for a PostgreSQL consultant position. We 
are looking for PostgreSQL expert who's been responsible for the 
performance and stability of PostgreSQL databases in a few different 
environments.

You'll need skills in the database development and support side: 
developing and tuning complex SQL queries, PL/pgSQL or PL/Perl functions, 
constraints, rules, triggers, and views.

Equally valuable are skills in the administration side: setting up, 
configuring, and maintaining the hardware, operating system, database 
software, and replication systems such as Slony and Bucardo.

Our consultants regularly interact directly with our clients via 
telephone, email, and instant messaging, so you'll need excellent verbal 
and written English communication skills. Good candidates pay attention to 
detail, are careful with production systems, and code defensively to 
provide good stability and maintainability of mission-critical systems.

This is a full-time salaried position with benefits including health 
insurance, paid holidays, vacation, and 401(k) plan. Our employees work 
primarily from their home offices. Generally very little travel is 
required. Employees in the United States must be U.S. citizens or 
permanent residents.

Apply by emailing jobs <at> endpoint.com with details about your experience and 
salary expectations. Principals only, please. Thank you.
