Senior Database and Systems Administrator

Bambora is on a mission to shape ‘the most customer focused payments experience’. Our Senior Database and Systems Adminstrator’s role is to work with our close-knit IT team on the monitoring and patching of systems in Bambora’s data-centers. Everyone on the team has their primary role, but collaboration is key in the Zoo (that’s what we call our office)!

What you will do:

Bambora’s production environment consists of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and Linux systems, MS SQL 2008 and PostgreSQL. The IT team is responsible for managing production, development and the corporate environment with the Senior Database and Systems Administrator being responsible for the administration side of these environments.

You will own, track and resolve database related incidents and requests while continually assessing and implementing new technologies. You will troubleshoot and problem solve databases in on-premises and cloud environments.

You will actively participate in IT standups/meetings and provide problem resolution and technical support. You will also provide emergency support outside of regular business hours by being part of a 24/7 rotational production support group. We will make sure you have the tools for this to happen!

Who we are looking for:

We need Bamborians who are analytical thinkers and problem solvers. You will work in a dynamic and agile environment in which we empower our teams to be curious, make decisions and be accountable to them. You believe that the route to speed and stability is through automation.

 You have:

  • A Degree/Diploma in Computer Science or related field, minimum 5 years experience
  • 3 + years experience in a network security and system administrator role
  • Experience working with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2012
  • A thorough knowledge of Microsoft Server 2012 and higher operating systems 
  • Knowledge of pro-active SQL database monitoring scripts and automation
  • SQL database performance tuning and troubleshooting
  • Knowledge of clustering, log-shipping, database mirroring, database snapshots, data partitioning, index maintenance
  • Knowledge of working with PostgreSQL in a cloud environment
  • Thorough knowledge of VMWare virtualization solutions

Who we are:

We are proud to come together as innovators, service engineers, financial advisors, marketers, and digital masters.  Bambora processes transactions in 65 markets and has over 700 employees in Europe, North America and Australia. 

The payment market is rapidly changing, and Bambora is a part of that change. We are a payment company with global presence and a mission to simplify payments for small and midsized merchants whether that business is instore, online or in-app. In July 2017, we became part of Ingenico Group, one of the world's largest payment companies, which provides increased opportunities for us to simplify payments and help customers grow worldwide. 

In North America we are globally-minded with a start-up atmosphere. You will experience this in your every-day life as a Bamborian.
