Grow a team of SQL Server DBA experts - hands-off post

This kind of opportunity doesn't crop up every day - the chance to build a team of database specialists for an innovative tech-led firm! You'll manage the team and be their SQL Server technical escalation point.

They have built a very successful enterprise-scale, real time transactional environment over the last 20 years.

Your new team, created in line with significant international growth, will be database and DBA experts whose SQL Server solutions will be integral to a company who have tens of millions of customers across the globe.

If you manage a large department and fancy getting back closer to the coalface and building up a team to the same size, I want to speak with you. Alternatively, you may be leading a small team and looking to next that next step up into a larger environment.

You'll be part of a wider Development and Database / DBA department which has grown to such an extent that we need extra leadership expertise. You'll be the day-to-day manager of the team and interface with senior management (who are also technical).

You'll be using your management experience to hire and coach a team of varying levels of experience, coordinate SQL Server database releases, input into product development, manage greenfield projects and remove blockers for your DBAs.

Your team will be working on Replication, Log Shipping, performance tuning, Failover Clustering, Indexing, HADR set-ups and upgrading to SQL Server 2019. It's mainly Microsoft and you'll also be exposed to open source tech.

You'll be able to use the benefit of your expeirence in these areas to help your team develop.

It's a fast-paced, high quality environment where your cool, calm demeanour is needed. Your pragmatic leadership approach will flourish in this environment - if you prioritise getting the job done over sitting in a meeting room this is the job for you.

Your new company have an established structure in place which recognises and rewards Manager performance. This, allied to constant technical innovation, leads to a strong staff retention rate.

Salary is up to £60k with package including bonus, flex benefits and good pension, plus more. Post-Covid you'll be working in Manchester city centre.
