    You have worked with remote, globally distributed teams of data architects, database programmers, etc. Your primary focus will be to work directly with the client to monitor database performance, implement changes, and apply new patches and versions when required.

    You are comfortable in the cloud environment, specifically with AWS. You have hands-on experience setting up AWS RDS, DynamoDB, and Aurora instances. You can deal with relational and non-relational databases. You have a sense of the appropriate use case for each. You know how to configure these services in order to achieve high availability and fault tolerance. You had experience setting up databases used for analytics/OLAP.

    You have solid organizational and administrative skills, including multi-tasking and time management, and a Bachelor's Degree in a computer discipline or relevant certification.

    You love learning and understand that software is an ever-evolving world. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet. You are self-driven, self-learner willing to share knowledge and participate actively in your community.
