SQL Server Engineer / Data Migration - SQL Server, SaaS Product

Our client has developed their own cloud-based eCommerce software product utilised within the entertainment/leisure sector. They are the leaders in their field and are going through a period of global and new market expansion. Their platform transfers £millions through its platform on a weekly basis. You will be joining a central London based team of over 90 employees, based across London, Manchester and New York offices and working with over 300 clients within the entertainment sector around the UK and in North America.

You will be leading data migration projects end to end while working closely with the rest of the data, ops and implementation teams. You'll work collaboratively with all stakeholders, including clients and our business team, to balance the customers' needs with delivering the project on time. You will occasionally visit clients and understanding their requirements will be part of your responsibility.

You will develop and maintain our clients' 'data importer' to deliver improvements, include new functionality, improve efficiency and keep data integrity. You'll be taking ownership of existing tools, as well as building from scratch when we come across systems we've never migrated from before.

You'll need to quickly get your head around the foreign data sets you're provided with and use your problem solving skills to work out how to transform these into our client's format.

Here are the technologies that you will utilise:

  • SQL Server (It is essential that you have SQL experience for success in this role)
  • C# console applications
  • PowerShell
  • Full Convert
  • JIRA / Trello / Confluence / Google Apps
  • Stash (Git) Source Control / Bitbucket / Bamboo

The software application is a SaaS product and is a multi-tenant, scalable web application written in C# and backed by SQL Server. The application is hosted on a private & Azure based cloud.

Skills/Duties in the role:

  • Extracting data from new customers' varying software applications/systems into the centralised, core software SaaS platform
  • Strong SQL skills, whether that is from SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL or Postgres. Preferably with experience migrating data between different systems, platforms and database schemas.
  • Be able to quickly analyse, understand and translate between vastly different implementations of common concepts.
  • Run projects from inception to delivery. You believe the best way to serving clients is by getting close to them.
  • Great communication skills and be able to explain complex processes both verbally and in writing.
  • Ability to be adaptable to move data out of often old/legacy systems and into our client's ecosystem - a true problem solver!
  • Maintaining the SQL Server infrastructure hosting over 300 client systems
  • Some operational support

When it comes to data extraction you will need to understand new/foreign data and use your problem-solving skills to work out how to transform the data into our client's core format. You will be taking ownership of existing tools, as well as building from scratch when we come across systems we've never migrated from before.

You will work closely with the client-facing Project Management team and different stakeholders within the business.

You will be one of two database specialists working within our client's Operations Team - a small but dedicated team of DevOps engineers from a wide variety of backgrounds. You'll be helping to ensure that databases remain secure, highly available and high performing - and that any issues are resolved as quickly as possible.
