  • I neglected to mention that this role involves working with one of the elite SEAL teams on the east coast. Lots of opportunity and a very unique environment!

  • Hi Kelly,
    Are you interested in an Aussie for this ?

  • Hi David,

    It is open to all candidates, but you must have at least a SECRET security clearance. If you do have one, I would love to talk to you about the opportunity!

  • Sorry I don't have American Secret clearance. only NV1 Aussie, and that may have expired

  • I'm curious.  What if you can't find someone that's both a good solid Mid-Level DBA and has a Secret Clearance?  What if you can only find a good solid Mid-Level that doesn't have such a clearance?  Will you make the DOD application to get them one?

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    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.

    Change is inevitable... Change for the better is not.
