Senior Database Administrator


Back to see all openings's mission is to make teams who deliver client work become efficient, organised, profitable and happy! Our platform has revolutionised how companies manage their daily workflows for improved automation, productivity, and profitability. It acts as the ‘one-stop-shop’ project management solution enabling our customers to track, manage, and invoice their projects. Our relentless customer-focus has been rewarded with thousands of amazing customers all across the globe and millions of users who sign in every day. We pride ourselves on creating market leading software, working with outstanding people, and going above and beyond for our customers. Trusted by more than 20,000 teams across 170 countries, is in acceleration mode as we set our sights to become the undisputed Project Management platform for teams who deliver client work.

We believe in hiring great people and look to ensure everyone has the best possible experience of work, everyday. This is a remote role but our preference is for candidates based in Poland, Ireland, The UK, Spain, Bulgaria, or the Netherlands. Remote at means that you are mostly free to work from home or a space close to you. From time-to-time, you may be asked to travel to our office to help us foster a collaborative environment. The volume of expected travel to an office will not be cumbersome and it will be discussed at the interview stage. Office-based work is not the expectation for this role, but you are welcome to work from our office as much as you like!

We strive to be open and transparent, humble and customer focused. And we thrive on curiosity, getting results and working together relentlessly to deliver excellence. We are a company of action, full of triers and doers: we try things, we make mistakes, and we learn from them. Our personality is unmistakable: we work hard, take joy in our wins and each other's successes and important life events. And we care and support each other when life throws lemons. More than anything we embrace a straightforward approach to getting things done. We are fanatical about our customers: and when talent meets passion, success happens.

The opportunity

Never met a query you can’t improve? Enjoy teaching developers how to rewrite their statements and why? We need people who are confident in their knowledge and free with their opinions. We need DBAs who want to help improve our existing schemas and shape tomorrow’s data layer.  

As our customer base continues to grow, we are expanding our operations teams to match that growth. We are looking for MySQL/MariaDB experts to help us continue to scale our software. We are looking for someone who can take a feature request, weigh the pros and cons of how to store and manage its data, then communicate a solution that puts service reliability and our users first. We need someone who can find the constraints in our current schemas and come up with ways to improve them.

What good looks like

Advanced knowledge and experience in relational database architecture and system design.

Advanced knowledge and experience in MySQL/MariaDB database performance tuning, specific to AWS RDS.

5+ years of experience as a relational DBA in a high traffic, transactional environment.

Experience with data sharding, horizontal partitioning and advanced query optimisation.

Experience in administration of MySQL/MariaDB.

Exposure to DevOps practices, including IaC and containerisation.

Confident in some scripting languages (bash, python, etc)

Ability to work cooperatively with software developers

AWS experience is a major plus.

Experience with non-relational databases including Redis, MongoDB would be a plus

Experience with DB proxy (like ProxySQL) or connection poolers would be a plus

We know the confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates, so please don’t hesitate to apply — we’d love to hear from you.
