*Participating in an on-call rota and out of hours work as required.

Essential Skills include:

*Extensive experience as an Oracle DBA with Oracle 12c, 18c and 19c.
*Experience of building & supporting Dataguard, RMAN, OEM, and MAA architectures.
*SQL and PL/SQL experience.
*Strong patching experience.
*Linux (OEL, Redhat) Administration & shell scripting.

Desirable Skills include:

*Experience of Exadata, RAC, ZFS.
*Experience of Delphix, Informatica, Qlik or Denodo would be useful.
*Knowledge and experience of using/developing with Oracle Application Express.
*Git and Azure DevOps release pipelines.
*Database DevOps tooling.
*Experience of Oracle in the Cloud. (OCI, Azure, AWS etc.)

Whilst it will be predominantly remote, the role will require 1 - 2 days on-site in Edinburgh every week / fortnight as things open up.
