Posted on May 26, 2021 by WA Consultants
Required for a remote-based contract with our Swedish client and experienced Linux System Administrator with experience using MySQL/Cassandra/DBA. You must have a SysAdmin-mindset, not just a focus on optimising databases.
In close collaboration with the already existing DBAs, participate in hands-on work to increase OS patch cadence for the database Servers, without jeopardising the hard requirement of very high uptime. Automation will be key.
Document and explain what should be fully automated, semi-automated or only manually patched.
Part of the assignment is to secure the verification of the services after patching, book-keep every step in Jira, create/automate data presentation for the team and higher management for the specific area.
Setting up new Servers/services, migrate or decommission old Servers/services and other tasks in the database domain.
