I’ve read a lot of good blog posts about things people look for in a DBA. A lot of those are skill-related. I think a monkey could do my job if properly trained. Here are a few non-skill related items I’d be looking for if I were hiring a DBA.
- analytical skills
- attention to detail
- aptitude for mathematics
- ability to document processes
- writing skills
- problem solving skills
- ability to work with all levels of business users
- ability to translate technical concepts for business users
And if anybody in the Boston area is looking for a DBA with these skills, just let me know.
