As a Database Engineer PostgreSQL you are part of a multidisciplinary team and the projects you work on focus on our Technical Platform Space. You guard and optimize the performance, security and scalability of our databases and offer support to engineers and scrum teams. You provide tools and features to scrum teams so they can do their work independently. You are responsible for automating DBA tasks and monitoring, provisioning and configuration management, of our databases and linux servers. All the scrum teams are responsible for their own deployments and part of your job is to help the teams to be as autonomously as possible.

  • Experience with open source or cloud databases such as PostgreSQL
  • Constantly trying to automate yourself out of work. We mainly use Python, Ruby and Ansible or Puppet
