Not by a recruiter, by one of the research heads at the company. Had a phone interview today.
My background for the last three years has been MS SQL querying and light DBA tasks, guided primarily by people asking me things and me asking Google and then fixing them. Prior to that, I've done quite a bit of help desk and general IT work. I got thrown at SQL because I had "Access dB" on my resume from 2003.
I've literally done nothing with PostgreSQL, but they want to see me for a live interview next week. They say they're fine with someone learning it on the job if they can demonstrate a certain level of technical ability beforehand. I just downloaded and installed a copy of PostgreSQL to play with, and I'll dive into the documentation tonight.
I'm not uninterested, and I realize it's premature to lose any sleep over switching dB flavors, but I was sort of curious if anyone here has any thoughts on the PostgreSQL world, any major differences between it and MS, etc. Prior to today I hadn't given it much thought.
