The company I am working for is looking for a junior/mid level DBA.
I am fortunately not HR, and I do not have a proper job spec yet, so I'll post what I know.

Who we are;

We are a insurance company that was established in 2012, since then we've grown to 1000 employees and about 100k clients. Of which 70%+ of the growth happened in the last 4years.

To date the IT running the company has been really small, but insanely efficient.
We have 2 desktop IT guys, 1 DBA, 2 Business Analysts , 3 full time devs(a few part time) and a CTO.
Because of that, the work atmosphere is really nice and everyone gets along quite well - No corporate politics so far.

What I can say though, the work will be office based, we are back full time.
They don't mind the odd day working from home every now and then, but we're back in the office - Fucken gorgeous offices, but offices none the less.

The average day at the office will be 1/2 meetings, work that was mostly planned ahead of time and a lekker 65" TV playing music most of the day. When there is a big match on, we turn on chromecast and watch it while working.

Position Available: MSSQL DBA/ SQL dev (yes those do [apparently] exist)
Number of Positions: 1
Employment type: Permanent
Salary: I don't know exactly what they are offering, but it will be really competitive.
Perks: Life insurance and very nice coffee machines, flexi hours and a zero BS work environment.
Starting Date: ASAP
Location: The Campus Bryanston

There will be PowerBI work and C# work as well, but in smaller amounts and the company is happy to train.
Pm me your CV, I will compile a list then take it to DBA who you'll be working under for comments.

bump, still looking for CV's. Less than 5 received somehow.

Let me taunt a bit;
Company is flying about 80 people off to Mauritius in a few hours, just one of the many benefits if you had a good year.

Bump.

Everyone is back from their Mauritius trip, but most are still drunk, so I'm sitting with the recruiter on Thursday for a job spec/description then I'll update again.

Last message before I get banned for bumping.

I know we all hate "rem to be discussed", but they won't lowball you.
We're a serious company looking for good people who will stick for the long term.
Because they're so hard to find, you will be looked after.
