If you could improve your current job as a DBA in any way, what would you change?

Oh, did I mention this is a MID level DBA role paying up to $120K + bonus + perks? I just did ;-)

I mean, if you worked in a fast-moving sector that afforded you better learning opportunities - say, the finance sector - would that improve it?

I suppose the financial sector is usually quite bureaucratic though, isn't it... fair enough - what if it's not a bank, yet provided exposure to clearing / trading systems?

Or what if the company has 2 data centres split across St Leonards & CBD, and you split your time between both locations. OR you prefer St Leonards 80% of the time as its closer to home?

Okay, how about if your colleagues were all awesome? Passionate about what they do, and extremely good at it (like you are), but not in love with themselves?

Where everyone loves the place, wants it to do well, and stays for an average of about 5-8 years? You'd enjoy your work more, that's for sure...

You know, so you'd have a load of like-minded people, but with different backgrounds and viewpoints, to talk to and learn from? The DBA team has a lot of experience so great opportunity to learn from others.

Or would your current job be better if your bosses/teammates were cooler?

Not cooler like Fonzie, but if they were hands-on, understood your role, and invested in you and your career development? Or, just left you alone?

You'd also be involved in the implementation of new environments / data centres. Lots of project and change work (50%) on Oracle & SQL.DB's.

The work itself would have to be important as well, wouldn't it?

Like important projects, huge system upgrades and new feature development.

Doing the stuff you're good at, like researching new RDBMS features, solving business related problems in new ways, automating everything.

Gaining exposure to other DB's & tooling such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, CICD tools & Analytics tooling.

The little added-value bonus stuff would be a nice icing on the cake as well, don't you think? Like cool offices, next gen software, huge investment in upgrades, latest version, project initiatives...

So, if you had to pick one of those things to improve your current job, which one would you pick?

Actually, wait. Don't pick.

Have them all.

I just remembered, there's a job exactly like that.

And they're looking for someone like YOU, someone who's a confident Oracle & SQL Server DBA, right now.

What are you waiting for?! Give me a call and I'll tell you about it! I'll send you the JD too, just remind me.

I'm Ramona, please DO call me on +612 9158 3893.

Or email me on, if you're a bit shy.

Alternatively, you could just not improve your current job in any way. Wouldn't be my choice, but hey...
