We have a terrific opportunity for an experienced, talented Database

has administered very large data stores growing by several Terabytes per
day. The position is located in the Bay Area.

We're looking for an individual who thrives on delivering data store
solutions that emphasize scalability and high-availability. You'll be able
to exercise your deep understanding of hardware platforms, and appropriately

the chance to take on complex and interesting problems as part of a
fast-paced, highly collaborative team. They hold themselves to high
standards, and take pride in their work. 

*What do you need?*

Minimum 5 years experience developing and administering database
infrastructure for mission critical applications.
A deep understanding of database design principals.
Experience maintaining large databases (>10TB).
Strong SQL skills and experience writing stored procedures.
Experience in performance tuning and optimization of SQL and stored
procedures (PL/pgSQL).
Thorough knowledge of current hardware systems, RAID and disk subsystems
commonly used in fault tolerant production environments.
Experience supporting redundant systems with 24X7 availability requirement.
Ability to proactively identify, troubleshoot and resolve live database
systems issues.

*What would be nice?*

Knowledge of data-intensive, no-SQL architectures (e.g. Hadoop, HDFS, Hive)
and Map-Reduce concepts.
Data Warehousing and/or Data Mining experience.
