We are looking for:

  • 4+ years of experience of large scale PostgreSQL databases setup, design and maintenance

  • Someone who only needs to take one look at a database schema and process tables, and already know what can be improved
  • Experience in working in agile development environment
  • Strong prototyping skills

  • Fluent English skills
