I'll go one further...

"Monitor and tune database resources and activities for SQL Server databases"

Does that include being allowed to beat the hell out of developers that write performance challenged code?

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column."

I have 25+ years experience and cannot meet all of those requirements !

If they hire one person I'll bet the top end is 60-65K to boot.

Now if they were really on the ball they probably would be looking for a small team of specialists in the range of 3-5 people.
