If so, you’re exactly the kind of person who our Aberdeen based client (who make well-needed software solutions for over a million users across the globe) would love to hear from!

So if you’ve got the SQL DBA skills, ability to work with large SaaS environments, and experience/interest in Azure that’d make you a perfect fit for this, and fancy the sound of a rewarding, challenging and varied opportunity, then you’ll want to speak with Liam at Abrecco before this is gone!

Just some of what you’ll do:
- Ensure databases are ticking over nicely, from installation to upgrades and ongoing maintenance
- Work with other teams to conceptualise and implement SQL services for our client’s product suite
- Maximise system uptime through monitoring, alert investigation and incident resolution
- Contribute to SQL service design discussions and making suggestions for improvements
- Participate in the on-call rota, ensuring key applications are working properly at all times

What you will bring to the table:
- Excellent communication and interpersonal skills with the ability to work in a collaborative team
- Strong understanding of Database principles coupled with hands-on operational support skills
- Ability to troubleshoot and tune Microsoft SQL Server instances
- Solid experience across monitoring, performance analysis, troubleshooting, scripting and automation
