Manager of Database Engineering - Linux Cloud DevOps - Max EU95k + 20% Bonus & Shares - Dublin, Ireland
Salary: From EU80,000 - EU95,000 plus 20% bonus, shares and good benefits
THE COMPANY AND SITUATION OVERVIEW:
A hugely successful and very fast-growing multi-billion dollar ITSM company requires someone with experience managing DBAs to manage a team of Database Engineers in DevOps for their cloud applications. They call this team the SWAT team, which stands for Software Action Team. The primary skills requirement here is database experience in a MySQL and Linux environment.
The experience they are seeking is as follows:
- A minimum of 2 years of commercial experience managing database engineers or DBAs (Database Administrators). This can be either as a manager or technical team leader.
- At least 2 years of experience managing databases in a Linux and MySQL environment
- Troubleshooting experience in a technical operational environment, eg cloud operations
- Experience in Database performance tuning
- Cloud experience
Please note the above are essential: You require all of the above to be eligible for this role.
The SWAT team's mission is to ensure the stability of customer applications (all cloud-based) and infrastructure services from an operations and infrastructure perspective. The team's role is to be the last level of support for customers, both internal and external.
Your role is to lead a team of highly skilled database engineers that push the limits of scalability through their specialized technology. As part of this, you will be required to learn the application, troubleshoot any issues arising, conduct performance tuning and then feedback to developers on best practice. Consequently, although a management role, you will still retain a strong hands-on involvement.
They have told me that for the successful incumbent, they are open to all kinds of training to help your career aspirations, as long as they match the role. Additionally, promotion to senior manager is always on the table if you're performing well.
What's the attraction here? Why come and do this?
As described by the hiring managers:
Coming into my group is a lifestyle change. SWAT is not just about the title it's about lifestyle, how we react, how we own things, how we take it to completion, how we build our understanding of the product of Java, of databases, of operations. It's the whole thing.
I don't think there are many organisations at this point who can offer the stability that we can offer for having a well-established enterprise organisation, but also still having that start-up capability of really being able to put your stamp or something and own it moving forward.
They would be responsible for the upkeep of one of the largest public clouds surrounded by smart people, interesting technology and the kind of start-up mentality that we still have, we own things, we create things, we change things, so that must be a big plus for any guy that likes to develop technically.
The attrition rate within the group is below one per cent. I think that demonstrates firstly that we give people an interesting experience where they're always learning, there's always opportunity to progress and also we're investing heavily in the business in this group moving forward.
