Database Engineer - SQL Server

| Greater Boulder Area

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

Raise your hand if you LOVE ads! Yeah, we feel the same… So come be a part of the solution, by joining the team that is changing the face of advertising for the better. Founded by the pioneers of real-time bidding (RTB), The Trade Desk has become the fastest growing demand-side platform (DSP) in the industry by offering agencies and their advertisers a best-in-class technology platform that focuses on delivering meaningful and relevant engagement with consumers.

With integrations into every major advertising exchange, we handle well over 4 trillion requests every month and growing – that's more page views and queries than Facebook, Google Search, and Google's entire network of websites combined – all serviced in single-digit-ms response times. Are you interested in working with big data? Do you want to push the edges of scale and responsiveness? It doesn't get much bigger or faster than this!

We are looking to hire a Senior Database Administrator who will work in collaboration with our engineering team to ensure aligned execution of database related activities. You enjoy investigating database problems, performance issues, and evaluating best practices to ensure optimal performance on the platform.

Recently named one of the top 10 most promising companies in America by Forbes Magazine and one of the "Best Places To Work" in the nation by Outdoor Magazine, The Trade Desk offers a culture of "relaxed intensity" – one that comes from working alongside one of the most talented teams in our industry, and leading in a race that is ours to lose.

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING:

  • Provide day-to-day support and maintenance for Microsoft SQL Server 2014 databases for our platform. This includes, but is not limited to: administration, analysis, support, proactive monitoring, troubleshooting, recoverability, failover, security, installation, and design.
  • Investigating potential problems and issues raised by users
  • Monitoring database events and continuously optimizing system performance through troubleshooting and tuning
  • Work with engineering team to automate reactive procedures and promote rapid response to database issues
  • Maintaining database configurations in compliance with established best practices
  • Designing and implementing systems, policies, and procedures for backup and disaster recovery
  • Monitoring ongoing capacity and implement design and architecture changes as needed to improve global availability
  • Installing upgrades and patches to existing database servers
  • Designing and developing database code as needed
  • Reviewing and establishing database migration patterns and weekly release scripts
  • Participating in on-call rotations

WHAT YOU BRING TO THE TABLE:

  • 5+ years of Database Administration experience supporting mission critical relational databases
  • Considerable experience and knowledge of MS SQL 2014 or above and best practices
  • Proficiency with OLTP Database Environments
  • Experience configuring and administering MS SQL replication and availability groups
  • AWS Database Management, OLAP experience, and Vertica management experience are a bonus, but not required
  • Full systems lifecycle experience (from requirements to delivery) of database projects
  • Experience designing, building, installing, configuring, supporting, and maintaining high-volume, large database systems
  • Experience managing SQL Server table partitioning
  • Top-notch troubleshooting and analytical problem-solving skills
  • Experience with database design and management aspects for various compliance programs, such as Sarbanes-Oxley or PCI, is a big plus
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, with a demonstrated ability to document complex technical problems
  • Ability to work effectively in a team environment, as well as independently with limited supervision

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
