This event will include testing. Upon grading the deliverables from the event, we will set up qualified candidates with an interview with the hiring manager. This is a 100% remote, full-time role.

We are looking for experienced Database Chief Architects to join Crossover. Our ideal candidates are highly motivated, goal-oriented, and team-focused with a passion for supporting customer-facing services, processes, systems, and infrastructure.

This position will work to assure the overall availability and performance of production services against availability and quality SLAs. You will respond to alerts or events that impair or degrade services and could cause outages that impact availability. You will identify root causes, single points of failure, and eliminate them through remediation and execution.

A successful candidate should be able to proactively plan, implement, and maintain DB operational services, backup, and recovery; scaling and capacity planning activities, and administration and management of all database software patches and upgrades.

This role will also support the database application programming activities of engineering or professional services staff as needed. You will work in day-to-day troubleshooting of application issues and data fixes. You must be able to handle heavy workloads, multi-task efficiently and be able to switch gears in a moment’s notice.

This position is 100% remote.
