Senior Teradata DBA

Senior Teradata DBA
Viri Technology is seeking a Sr. level DBA with strong Teradata expertise for an immediate contract to hire role in the Seattle area.  This is a rather exclusive role (only 2 other agencies lay claim to it) with a very well respected, growing company in the data analytics space, where the client's culture, work life balance, employee retention and benefits are all second to none.
If you have the talent to wow at a place like Amazon, but the desire to apply it towards a much more positive culture and team, this is an ideal role to pursue!
As a DBA / Database Development Engineer, you will be responsible for developing deep technical expertise in a few database technologies while simultaneously providing breadth level support in many more. The ideal candidate will have significant experience in designing and implementing elegant, scalable, and performant database schema and populating those databases with enterprise quality data.  You must understand indexing, sharding, partitioning, and structure. While supporting our development organizations you will demonstrate great skill in optimizing databases for the unique queries being performed.
You understand the downward effects of a poor design, you're not afraid to venture into new areas of database technology and take a solution-oriented approach in a team friendly environment.
Bottom line , you're smart, motivated, and not a jerk.  :)

  • 5+ years of database administration, development, analytics and management expertise, with strong Python dev chops.
  • 2+ years of professional Teradata experience, as this will be the primary focus of the role. You have a depth of expertise with performance tuning, adding new users, optimization and scaling software applications.
  • A deep understanding and experience with data mining, data analytics, predictive modeling, and advanced modeling techniques.
  • A passion for staying current on the latest development practices and technologies, including tools like Hadoop, Hive, DB2, MySQL, NoSQL, Vertica, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Splunk, need we go on? :)
  • Ideally, you have a Computer Science related degree, but expertise trumps academics, we want practical application of your knowledge. 

If you feel qualified and interested in this immediate contract to hire role, the team at Viri would love to speak with you!  We are comprised of former software engineers, sys admins, etc and love to bring that technical expertise and service to your search!   We look forward to hearing from you, and thanks for considering this great opportunity.
