Mission Critical Engineer – DBA


If you are a strong team player who can automate automation to bits, likes to take ownership, can work independently (we have no managers), and have the ability to challenge us on our decisions: we’d like to hear from you.

We are an IT-driven company. This means that the knowledge of our 200+ IT-experts determine the technological future and DNA of our company. We do DevOps: our customer teams are completely self-steering, we have no managers but we do have full end-to-end responsibility. Every team member is fully mandated and in direct contact with the customer.

We run HA environments and focus only on running the application ecosystems, which are critical to the business of our customers. Critical meaning: downtime = zero business.  Everything we do we do cloud-based: we run online banks and businesses critical to the public in AWS, Azure, Google and in our private cloud Cosmic which is open source software designed to deploy and manage large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable IaaS cloud computing platform.

CI/CD, config management, tooling and good old scripting enables us to automate everything we feel can be automated. We are looking for an Oracle and/or SQL DBA who shares our view that common databases and infrastructures are becoming a commodity quickly and who therefore is looking for a company which is moving higher into the stack. A large part of your regular day-to-day job as a DBA consists of tech deep-dives into the OS’ses we run on our clouds, lots of config management (Chef, Puppet, Ansible) and taking everything into the future of database automation.

We’d love for someone with the following skills to join one of our teams:

  • You’re T-shaped engineer, meaning you are comfortable operating across platforms and have in-depth experience in databases;
  • 6+ years working on Oracle and/or SQL databases;
  • you know your way around HA Microsoft or Linux operating systems, preferably in a cloud environment;
  • you frequently use one or more scripting languages;
  • a true team player who has an opinion and wants to take ownership;
  • excellent ability to express your ideas and challenge your peers, and communicating with stakeholders of our customers.

Can’t place checkmarks behind every item on this list? But you do have that great DevOps mind-set, you script, have experience with Chef, Puppet or Ansible and just really want to automate, we’d still like to hear from you!

We do not just believe, but know from 15 years’ experience that it is possible to achieve our unchanging goal: 100% customer satisfaction. Every day is different. We’re a privately owned company, which allows us to choose technologies which benefit our customers first. Schuberg Philis believes in craftsmanship and we believe that building and maintaining complex application ecosystems can be done by putting artisans in the lead. Working from your own ability and to your own capacity means you will never be bored. By automating and teamwork we create more Awesome!

Like all colleagues at Schuberg Philis, we strive for Infrastructure as Code, continuous development and automated testing. We have the ambition to automate all monkey work and expand our application development projects. You undoubtedly share our conviction that automation creates better quality and is great fun to work on.
