Wow! That's quite a laundry list. So, in summary:
I think you missed one:
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?
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.
