We have a number of very challenging database projects that we need  
help with, like:

A data warehouse that, while small today, will soon be growing by  
20-50GB a month, with that rate expected to accelerate upwards quickly  
in 9-12 months
A set of smallish (<30GB) OLTPs that need extensive tuning
A customer application that will hold one record type and need to  
provide very fast lookup on one or two fields in that record... but  
the number of records would be in the low to mid eleven digits.
Just to name a few...

	We don't need database developers: we have some very good guys doing  
that for us right now. What we're looking for are highly experienced  
Postgres DBAs who have deployed large, enterprise-sized setups that  
resemble our projects. This means you need to know the ins and outs  
and technical details of PG, and be willing to explain it a group of  
eager developers and system administrators who are keenly interested  
in squeezing every last ounce of performance out of our systems.

	We don't think our database needs are at all unique, so be prepared  
to answer lots of questions about projects that you've been on. Our  
ideal candidate will be just as at home with a theoretical  
architectural discussions on designing highly available systems  
followed by getting into the guts of how to configure Slony, or  
helping us decide whether we need 15k or 10k RPM drives for a  
particular application and what we monitor to validate that assumption.

	In short, we're looking for a kick-ass DBA/teacher/database ninja who  
can help us build the next big thing.
