Database Administrator Staffing

We are staffing experts for database administrators

Staffing the right database administrator can be a tough job. You need a professional who  possesses the necessary technology skills and experience to handle the maintenance of critical databases by installing software upgrades, troubleshooting issues, protecting against threats, and managing storage and security, as well as handling the implementation of various systems. Finding the right staffing agency to assist in that search can be just as tough. As an information technology recruiter with an outstanding reputation, 180 Engineering can get the job done, finding in-demand IT talent for your projects by sourcing full-time DBA contractors who have the right skills and who are a good fit for your budget.

Our clients expect a staffing firm that understands the needs of today’s rapidly advancing database infrastructure environments. They need a recruitment agency that can deliver contract database administrators with experience in:

  • Data backup and recovery methodology;
  • Performance optimization and tuning;
  • Security and integrity;
  • Database migration;
  • Management of database connections;
  • Documentation;
  • Coding; and
  • Design.

Our clients require DBAs who are skilled in working with Oracle Database and Microsoft SQL Server and who need no ramp-up time but can seamlessly integrate with their internal IT staff and company processes, whether at a physical or remote location.

180 Engineering will work with your IT hiring managers and human resources to fully understand your company’s project and information technology staffing. We promise to go beyond the job description in order to staff database administration professional contract workers who are reliable and committed to the responsibilities and duties of their career. All of our candidates go through a thorough screening process with a recruiter from our team to ensure that every submission is a qualified candidate who is a top performer in their field.

Case Study

The Challenge

A global medical device manufacturer was planning on upgrading to the latest version of Microsoft SQL Server across the entire organization. The upgrade needed to happen within a tight timeline and with no disruption of service, leaving a tall order for the IT director who was tasked with overseeing the project. His only option was to add to his internal database admin team for the project since he was short handed on DBAs with this kind of experience.

The Solution

The director of IT was referred to speak with 180 Engineering by a professional colleague who had had success with our agency for his own IT staffing needs. An experienced account manager from our team sat down with the director to discuss the experience and knowledge that would be required by contracted DBAs, and drew up a database administrator job description. With that in hand, our team of award-winning recruiters then got to work, utilizing various channels including LinkedIn profiles, job boards, referrals, and social media to quickly surface a short list of qualified talent. In just a short amount of time, 180 Engineering submitted a selection of DBAs to the client, honing in on those people who had the right experience in database management systems and who also had participated in upgrade projects at large companies.

The Outcome

The director of IT was able to successfully carry out the Microsoft server upgrade across the company with the aid of database administrators we placed on his team for the project. The director was so pleased that several of our DBA contractors were asked to stay longer to take on jobs with other critical projects for the infrastructure team.

Our happy clients love to share their experience working with 180 Engineering
