SQL Server DBA Developer/Architect – Reston, VA

Our client has a backlog of work that is keeping new e-software products from getting to market. One of the backlog items is fixing a test refresh issue. They need a qualified SQL Server DBA to help determine root cause and fix the refresh processes. 

Another initiative that is needed is to construct a new data layer for their consolidated processing platform. Our client needs a SQL Server DBA/Architect to assist/lead the definition, design, and construction of a new data base.  

We are looking for a person that is able to do both activities…. hands on DBA skills to work the refresh issue, and then development/architecture skills for the broader engagement of an automation implementation of the testing environment.



  • This senior level SQL Server DBA needs to have proven problem solving skills (meaning you must be able to describe some detailed good examples)


  • Must have excellent communication skills


  • Must have recent experience with definition, design, development, and implementation of large scale SQL Server databases.


  • Must have experience in designing, implementing, and supporting SQL Server databases in a high transaction volume environment. 


  • Experience working in a payment processing environment a plus.


  • Experience in mentoring/training junior team members


  • Computer Science Degree or equivalent is preferred.


  • **Ability to work in the US without sponsorship (EAD, Green Card, US Citizen)
