Team Size / Dynamics

  • You will be working with a small distributed team: 2 other DBA’s, 2 Business Intelligence Analysts and a variety of technical team members (systems, developer, and QA groups)

  • We are collaborative workers, and use Kanban for task management, Slack for team communication and Jell for team “stand-ups”.

The other requirements (hard to quantify, but important nonetheless):

  • Being passionate is important... the data & systems you maintain help support our aggressive growth as a company. We want you to own the projects you work on, and make them the best they can be.  Transportation might not be the most exciting field in the world, but we are looking for somebody who can get excited about transforming it.

  • We need somebody who communicates well. Being able to communicate well in the English language, both written and verbal, is important.  You will end up working with people other than developers & technical team members (end users, company management, etc.).

  • We require a willingness to adapt and learn. Nobody knows everything, and we don't expect you to either.  You will need the ability to pick things up quickly and be nimble in your approach.

Technical Environment

  • We are heavily invested in Microsoft technology with Windows Server, .NET, SQL Server, and Azure serving as the foundation for our systems.
