Description

Type: Full Time Position (Strictly No Freelancing/Part-Time) Min. Experience: Experienced Location: Your place

Green Nebula is looking to hire a Senior MySQL DBA to join our international team located wherever you are! That’s right; this is a 100% cloud based, remote position!

At Green Nebula, we work in a very agile environment, where we strive for short release cycles and are quick to adapt to new requirements and challenges from our clients. Because of this, you must be comfortable working in a dynamic environment and setting your own pace as a self-managed team member. During development, each beta-release results in new ideas or a requirement that needs to be prototyped and tested.

Since this position is remote, we need someone who is able to work at their own pace and manage themselves. You will be assigned tasks and it is up to you to complete them by the deadline - the number of hours you work consecutively is completely up to you, so long as the job gets delivered on time.

What you'll do:

You will instantly be part of our development team, and starting from day one, you'll be included in both new and existing projects, requiring you to put all your knowledge into test and rise above your comfort-zone.

Required Skills:

  • MySQL experience: Our preferred candidate should be more than familiar with MySQL db, we’re looking for 5+ years of healthy experience with DB’s in general and MySQL in specific.
  • High-Traffic: Our networks handles more than 300 Million visits per month and we keep on growing in a non-linear rate, we need someone with a fair share of experience handling High traffic/High load DB’s – our preferred candidate should have 2+ years of experience in multi-server/large clusters environment handling extremely large db’s.
  • Replications: Replications are a daily need when we need to split queries, preserve latency, and balance load, our preferred candidate will know how to Create, manage and optimize Master>Master & Master>Slave replications and will be able to suggest the best possible architecture for each case.
  • Query tuning and optimization: While our teams are busy turning our vision into reality we sometimes need a guiding hand, someone that can see the big picture and think outside the box, someone that can see a non-optimized query from miles away and can suggest a better one – a more suitable one that will require less resources and allow us to scale better in the future.
  • Wide experience with storage engines: There’s clearly a solid tradeoff between storage engines, whether it’s InnoDB, MyISAM or different flavors such as XtraDB and MariaDB – we expect you to know them, know the Pro’s and Con’s of each engine and be able to recommend us the best possible solution for our needs.
  • Self-motivated: sure its a cliché requirement, but since this is a remote position this is 100% necessary.
  • English: you are experienced enough in written and spoken English to not only understand your requirements, but communicate clearly with the team as well.

Bonus points:

  • LAMP skills: Any additional experience with Linux, Apache (or nginx) and PHP would be considered an advantage
  • Non-ACID: We always love to check future options and expand our boundaries
  • Cloud based services: We’re interested in exploring various cloud based options, any experience working with Amazon RDS, EC2, ElastiCache or Google SQL will serve as advantage

Love setting your own pace?

Imagine a job that you can do at the local coffee house or cafe, or wherever you are most comfortable and productive. We are a 7-year young web development company with a range of innovative online products. We are not your typical company and proud of it! We know that people are happiest and most efficient when they are self-managed, and we love that! Even though you’ll be working from home, you can expect a fast paced and exciting work environment which stays true to our entrepreneurial roots. You won't get frustrated with bureaucracy and slow decision making, and we encourage creative thinking!

Your Dream Job

We offer the chance to work with like-minded individuals from different cultures. Each day you come to work at login to work at Green Nebula, you will be working with a company that has the resources to get you what you need to do the best possible job, while at the same time being small and agile enough to notice you.
