Applications Administrator / DBA


Part Mr. Scott, Part Dr. McCoy


You are on the front lines – maintaining, upgrading, customizing and extending software systems and services. Your success depends on nothing bad happening. It also depends on working with a team to evolve the scope and quality of software and services provided to end users. This requires mastering the technologies under your control, often developing an understanding of third-party software that’s deeper than most of the people at the companies that built them.

  • You face any number of challenges, including:
    • Addressing diverse requirements set out by business and administrative users
    • Preventing disruptions to service, downtime, process errors or loss of data
    • Keeping underlying infrastructure and data stores optimized and responsive
    • Supporting the deployment of new systems and the upgrade of existing software
    • Building custom enhancements to address specific firm needs (often having to work around the limitations in packaged software with custom code and scripts)
    • Collaborating with owners of software systems that interface with or depend on systems under your control

    To be successful, you must keep the engines humming and internal users productive. To excel, you must make the case for investments in tools, process changes and projects that might not be easily understood by less technical stakeholders, but can significantly enhance your own productivity and the scope and quality of service provided to end users.
