The Opportunity: 

Your combination of people skills and technical expertise makes you the team hero, solving one problem after another. As a database and system administrator, you will perform back-up and recovery, analyze and resolve database system production problems, analyze user requirements and use cases, participate in database design and implementation, prepare system documentation, ETL activities, and support data analysis on application databases. Additional duties are system administration for database servers, including security patching and upgrades of OS, database, and supporting software. At Booz Allen, you can use those skills to improve the database technology supporting the client.

You’ll use technology and tools to identify problem areas and opportunities for improvement in a mission-critical database.
