NAVIS is thrilled to be adding an experienced Database Reliability Engineer to our growing team!  This is a US-based, virtual / remote position that will be responsible for working with a Pacific Time Zone based team.

Database Reliability Engineers (DBRE) are responsible for keeping database systems (this includes NoSQL technologies) that support all user-facing services and internal production systems running smoothly 24/7/365. Successful DBREs at NAVIS are an interwoven blend of database engineering, administration, and software development that apply sound engineering principles, operational discipline, and mature software development and automation, specializing in databases (PostgreSQL and MSSQL). In that capacity, DBREs are peers to Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) and bring database expertise to the SRE Infrastructure teams as well as our engineering teams.
