DBA for Pinnacle Sports
June 2006 to June 2007
DBA Team Lead for top rated sports books in the offshore gaming industry legally operating in the Dutch Antilles. Set up automated monitoring and subsequent query tuning activities that stabalized erratic database performance issues. By January of 2007 the once frequently taxed servers were consistently running at 10% CPU utilization or less. Designed and implemented a DBA team code review process for all production bound T-SQL. Worked with management, developers, QA engineer to assure that everyone understood the purpose and value of meeting each review guideline. The end result was a process that was perhaps just a little too intensive on time requirements for the DBA team, but was lauded by the developers for how much they were learning, praised by management for the reduction of production reverts achieved immediately, and naturally was big hit for DBA crew.
DBA for Wall Street On Demand
April 2001 to June 2006
Complete software lifecycle Database Administrator for over 30 SQL Servers with approximately 60 production database duplicated to two data centers for busy financial news and research content provider, web design and hosting organization serving over 1.5 billion unique page request per year as of mid 2006. I was the only DBA and there was no development or test environments when I started. The previous DBA, though well liked and respected by the crew, had fled the state after several months on the job. Business increased over 50% each year of employment. Not nearly as dramatic as the unique page load growth yet helps to show the sort of environment that I found quite compelling for several years. Also helpful to understand that for most of my tenure the office was in Boulder and, while the floor plan was open and collaborative, my seat was along a wall of windows with a wide open view of the Flatirons. Championed and helped design and build automated software lifecycle intranet based T-SQL script promotion tools. Established coding standards and peer code reviews.
