Job Description


Hope you're doing well today,

I have a urgent REMOTE role for Sr. DBA. Please share your resume if you like to apply.


Role: Sr. DBA

Length of Assignment: 12 months

Locations: NY, PA, CA, WA, VA, OH, SC, and FL States only

Remote guidelines and stipulations: Candidate will start work remotely, but will come onsite to meet the team towards the beginning of the assignment. The team will speak with the candidate about the specifics on this. As with before, travel & expense will be covered by the team.

Schedule: Typical Mon-Fri most of the time, but would be on a rotation with the other team members and every 3 weeks would be on call all week. OT hours are okay, if necessary to complete the on-call work, but the other two weeks of normal schedule will offset that. (i.e. if the contractor works 46 hours when on-call, the next week would only work 34 hours to off-set).

*The team would like the candidate to have flexibility in the hours they work to allow for them to sometimes work 5-8pm EST.

Onsite: No. Team would prefer the candidate to work remotely. However they may come onsite if things open up, just to meet the team. (see below for more details)

The contractor will be working on a mixture of Expense work and various projects. The contractor will be supporting production, business-critical high-volume databases. The contractor will work with cross functional teams to troubleshoot and resolve issues.

Required skills:

The senior-level contractor needs to have the following skills and experience:

Strong DB2 z/OS skills

Strong experience supporting business critical production databases

Experience performing failovers

Ability to troubleshoot under pressure

Ability to tune complex SQL statements


Alerts, monitoring and automation

Database maintenance scripts such as reorgs

Implement databases, roles, tables, views

Experience following strict change management process


  • Candidate MUST have a reliable and high speed internet connection, which supports using data and being on a video conference at the same time.
  • Candidate will work East Coast hours for the most part, with the flexibility of some WC hour coverage (5-8pm EST)
  • Candidates can only live and work remotely out of these approved states: NY, PA, CA, WA, VA, OH, SC, and FL
  • Client will reimburse the T&E costs for the weeks onsite, up to $7,000 (If the team needs them to stay a week or two longer, we will adjust this cap accordingly)
  • T&E costs will not be reimbursed until 30 days after the onsite time. Essentially this is to safeguard against a candidate being brought onsite, only to leave after some or all of that time. If they do that, we will NOT cover the T&E costs, we will only pay the bill rate for the hours worked while onsite. The team needs some assurance on retention for this to work, which is where we will need your partnership and continual communication with the candidate, more than ever.
  • A paper SOW will be created, to accompany the PO, that outlines all of these agreements. This will be signed by both vendor and QVC prior to the candidate's start
