=================


 


·       


Provide ongoing engineering support (2nd tier) and documentation for the operations group for patching Postgres on the new ground system in both staging and production landscapes.

Analyze and fix or suggest tuning solutions for hibernate and active record queries in the new ground system currently being written in Java/Spring and Ruby/Rails. Using pgbench testing would be a great start - we did not quite get there, but something beyond that would be preferable.
