Are You A Match?

We have an immediate need for a professional with a solution focused mindset to help our customers solve business challenges through the use of technology. The ideal consultant is an individual who wants to be part of an energetic, innovative and successful team. If you have a background in Microsoft SQL Server and surrounding technology, a strong learning desire in the Microsoft technology stack, and a great attitude, then the Sparkhound Managed SQL team is interested in you!

You’ll be joining a collaborative environment, trained on weak areas, brought up to speed with our engagements aggressively and placed in opportunities to excel. Onsite “checklist-based” consulting with clients, 25% - 50%. Working on project-based development as the database resource, 25% - 50%. Client augmentation and consulting, 25% - 75%. Travel, 0% - 20%. 24/7 on-call, 0% (zero!).

Ideal Candidates Will:

  • Participate in the delivery of projects and solutions to completion in a team environment while demonstrating a consultative personality, leadership mindset, and collaborative communication style.
  • Demonstrate and be able to communicate a more-than-fundamental understanding of Microsoft SQL Server features and concepts.
  • Self-drive and learn new concepts. We look for a history of self-driven skills improvement and technical enthusiasm, and we will pair that with teamwork, backup, training and job-shadowing.
  • Communicate clearly and confidently to non-technical and technical clients about technical problems. We prize and help develop the ability to serve as a friendly, approachable technical expert.

Professional Qualifications:

  • Four-yeardegree (or work experience equivalent) and 4+ years of experience SQL Server development and administration technologies.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.

  • SQL Server Data Tools for developing

What Else Would Help Me Stand Out?

  • SQL Server Disaster Recovery and High Availability solutions including clustering and Availability Groups
  • SQL Server maintenance, configuration and troubleshooting
