Jr SQL DBA (Intern)
“You just figure it out.” These five words describe how you approach problems – and hey, maybe how you approach life overall. You analyze a problem, find the best solution, and implement it. Then you iterate, and do again. And we want you to do it with us as a Jr DBA as part of our RPS/TRS IT Database Administration/Management team.
Here’s the deal: we need your big, beautiful brain to do some hands-on database work.
You’ll do things like:
Develop sql queries to assist IT staff in the development and testing processes
Create utilities using PowerShell to move data between databases
Analysis database trends to provide insight on database performance improvements
Collaborate with smart development and qa staff on data centric applications
This is the job for you because:
You learn fast. Like “The Flash” fast. You pick up new ideas, concepts, technologies, applications, and tools
You’ve got experienced database administration, design and development staff to learn from
You’re an all-round super star: an enthusiastic team player with crazy-good communications skills who puts the customer at the center of everything you do.
You know that part of innovation is failure. And when you fail, you always fail forward…learning something new and becoming even better than you were before.
Someday soon, you’ll make your parents proud with a degree in something like Computer Science, Engineering, Business, Finance, or Math. And hey, if you have a combo of Business and another discipline, you’ll score bonus points with us!
You will acquire skills that could propel you into a data management, administrative or analytics career

And you can meet your new friends at tons of Co-op events like our recent Execs-serve-ice-cream day, gingerbread house day, and pizza…there’s usually pizza involved.
You’ll also have lots of opportunities for professional growth. Linked In workshop? Yes! Personal branding workshop? Yes! Access to all our learning and development resources? You bet!
