Hi all,

We are looking for a smart and savvy Database Administrator to join our team 
of developers and systems admin staff in Brighton (UK).

The role is focused around our existing PostgreSQL and HBase infrastructure
for the Brandwatch application, with key aspects of the role being

  - Maintaining and tuning the application data stores.
  - Proposing and implementing further enhancements to improve speed and 
    availability.
  - Working with the development team to streamline their usage.
  - Participating in the infrastructure support rota.

Ideally we are looking for the following profile:

  - Strong commercial experience maintaining large multisite databases on 
    *nix platforms.
  - In-depth knowledge of PostgreSQL, including its various replication 
    mechanisms.
  - OLAP experience (or some other BI or scientific analysis approach on 
    larger datasets).
  - Knowledge of the wider data storage/retrieval landscape, including the
    various NoSQL systems and MPP databases.
  - Coding experience in Java, Python or within stored procedures
  - Linux systems administration experience.

If you meet three or more of these then we would be interested in talking
to you. 

We expect this role to suit either an experienced DBA looking to move into 
big data analytics, or an experienced linux SA looking to specialise into 
database administration. Position is full-time.

If you're interested please give me a shout - steve(at)brandwatch(dot)com -
with your CV and salary expectations.

Cheers!
 Steve
