  • You know most of the features of the latest database versions and can work with them according to the customer's requirements. 
  • On the basis of a rotation, you are responsible for the permanence and service to the end users to guarantee the agreed service levels. Sporadic work outside the traditional office hours is part of this.
  • In a proactive and critical way you examine the IT-environment of the internal/external customers and you formulate the necessary improvement proposals. These can be in the domain of infrastructure improvements, as well as in the capacity to recommend code and application changes.
  • You ensure up to date procedures and draw configurations in order to give the other engineers the necessary tools to guarantee the stability of the environment.
  • You provide support for incidents with end users of the internal/external customer in order to limit or avoid interruption of the work.
  • You have a drive to continuously learn, maximize your technical skills and apply them optimally within the organization.
  • As a DBA, you are responsible for the smooth operation and life cycle management of the client's Progress environment. You will monitor the SLAs and help provide standby for the 24x7 watch on a rotating basis.
  • With regard to Progress, you also make the necessary proposals to improve the customer environment. You are willing to go deep into the environment, perform analysis and script and document customization.
  • Depending on the level of knowledge, you will receive additional training to be able to perform the above tasks with support from colleagues.

  • Optional knowledge in Azure & OCI (nice to have): experience in setting up and managing environments in OCI are an important asset. The gradual expansion of our customer base in this domain provides additional opportunities to leverage this specialization. 
  • Beyond all the technical baggage, you will be working in a team of about 30 people where complementarity and collegiality are important. You should be able to think problem-solving, be analytical, communicative, customer-oriented & stress-resistant.
