Want to do interesting, in-depth SQL Server development work for a great company?
If the answer is yes, you should drop me a line immediately. Send me your resume at [my first name] @ [the name of this site].
This job is working on a data warehouse for a financial services company in Boston, MA. I cannot publicly mention the company name or say much about it, but if you e-mail me a resume I'll be happy to share more information. What I can say is that it's a solid company with a great reputation in the industry, and a fantastic place to work. The position is located in Boston, MA, and either requires that you live here or travel here (at your own expense) on a fairly regular basis. The company would prefer to hire fulltime employees, but there may be room for a contractor -- e-mail me and we'll see.
The project itself is to work with a small team of dedicated database developers, on a project very core to the company's mission. There are a lot of interesting challenges, there is a lot of work to be done, and the project is a very high visibility endeavor. The team is small and the project is somewhat loosely managed, so team members are expected to be the kind of people who can drive themselves forward, set their own goals, and make progress without a whole lot of hand holding. If you're the kind of person who is a self-starter and loves to learn, this is an environment in which you can really flourish.
Task-wise you'll be expected, depending on the day, to do some database design, some ETL, and usually a lot of T-SQL development. Performance is of paramount importance and the company is looking for people who have good to excellent understanding of SQL Server internals and can handle complex query tuning challenges. If you're the kind of person who gets excited when Paul White writes a new blog post, you'd be a great fit.
I can't say anything more here; if you're interested, drop me a line and I'll be happy to chat with you either via email or over the phone. I think this is a great opportunity and I hope some of my readers will want to give it a shot.
