Nebraska SQL from @DBA_ANDY

I'm a forty-something Microsoft SQL Server DBA of 12+ years, a devoted husband, and a father of two young boys (with another coming soon!). I have been a DBA at a university, at a major bank, at a healthcare system, and I now work as a consultant with customers across the United States.

We Are Hiring!

My employer Ntirety (a division of HOSTING) is currently looking for multiple SQL Server DBA's.  As you have probably seen from me on Twitter (or on this blog) previously, I joined Ntirety last November as a 100% work-from-home Senior SQL Server DBA.

Ntirety is based out of Boston, but we have WFH employees across the country.  We provide MSSQL, Oracle, and mySQL services, both as a managed service provider that works with clients for day-to-day production support and ongoing architecture work and as a professional service provider that works with clients on a project-by-project basis.  My group is the Managed Services group (and this is where all of these positions are.)

In Managed Services, we provide 24/7 support to clients of all shapes and sizes on things as simple as failed backups and maintenance jobs and as complicated as transactional replication and failover clustering.  We consult with our clients on plans to expand their infrastructure, implement Disaster Recovery, and migrate from one SQL Server version to another (just to provide a few examples).  While we generally work 8-5 local time, we do provide 24/7 on-call with a regular DBA rotation and a service desk in front of the on-call to handle basic items without paging the DBA.

Some of our clients have their own DBA teams, and we partner with those teams to provide expertise and extra hands, while other clients have no local DBA at all, and therefore use us for all of their database needs.

In the interests of full disclosure, Ntirety was recently acquired by HOSTING.  HOSTING is a networking and infrastructure managed services provider out of Colorado that saw Ntirety as a strategic acquisition since they did not have any database services in their portfolio.  We have been told that Ntirety will function "business as usual" as a division of HOSTING.

The MSSQL Managed Services team currently has the following *four* openings:
  • Mid-Senior SQL Server DBA (must be within New England area) - 5+ years experience (prefer 8+ years experience) with the ability to travel to Boston weekly.  Technically this position can be WFH, but there is a need to travel roughly weekly to the offices of a new Ntirety client located in South Boston, so you would still need to be located in the general Boston area.
  • SQL Server DBA - 8+ years experience, with the ability to WFH from anywhere in the United States (we do not explicitly exclude outside the US as far as I know, but a large majority of our clients are in the US time zones so there is a limitation in that way.) << NOTE - it was pointed out to me that we do indeed have a few clients outside the US, so I changed this from "all of our clients" to "a large majority of our clients"
  • SQL Server DBA - 8+ years experience, with the ability to WFH from anywhere in the United States (we do not explicitly exclude outside the US as far as I know, but a large majority of our clients are in the US time zones so there is a limitation in that way.) << NOTE - it was pointed out to me that we do indeed have a few clients outside the US, so I changed this from "all of our clients" to "a large majority of our clients"
  • SQL Server DBA (Dedham MA) - 5+ years experience (prefer 8+ years experience) - this position is required to work in the Dedham (Boston) office daily.
One of these positions is a refill of a previous employee, and three of them are new positions due to company growth.

The links with the positions above will take you to jobvite.com, the site our corporate recruiter uses.  You can apply through that site or by passing your resume to me.

Please contact me via Twitter message or DM (@DBA_ANDY), LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/in/dbaandy)  or via email (agalbraith@ntirety.com or andyhusker@gmail.com) with any questions you may have about Ntirety, about our Managed Services team, or about any of the particular positions.  The duties of each position are basically identical other than the point of whether you can WFH or not.  The mid-level DBAs and senior-level DBAs perform basically the same client work other than the Seniors performing mentoring and assistance for the Mid-levels.

Hope to hear from you soon!
