JOB DESCRIPTION:

Classification Review Notice

This position is currently undergoing review as a part of the IT Project job class study and therefore both the title and the pay range assigned may be subject to change upon the completion of the study.


Pay is based on the location of the selected candidate; salaries will be discussed at the time of the interview.
Anchorage: $2,799.
75/$2,994.

What You Will Be Doing:


As part of the Database Team, you are supporting around 190 servers and 3250 databases in the State of Alaska Enterprise.
What this could look like for your daily routine would be:

Review AlaskaNow IT tickets, emails, phone calls, MS Teams chat messages, and daily database report logs (Windows Event Logs and SQL Agent Logs) for identifying and prioritizing workload.
Follow up on other databases that require a higher level of attention depending on efforts towards migration or changes to configurations completed previously.

Check planning calendar schedule for patching, reboot events, server upgrades/migrations.
Communicate with fellow team members in MS Teams Chat to keep others aware of which projects you are already working on and keep aware what others have already begun.
While backups/restores/migrations of data are your typical norm – they offer of challenge when discovery of missing database objects or permissions need additional troubleshooting.

While it may sound a little routine, no two issues are identical, and the variances can keep your mind active.
High value specs of a reliable database include storage capacity and ease of performance.
While getting more storage can seem like an easy solution, you are challenged in how to implement it into that database.
Are the permissions or other network factors causing the backups to fail? There is no exact science to performance issues and tuning, and we will offer training and knowledge sharing to help you and the agencies along.

Since we provide support to multiple departments, we encourage your interpersonal and communication skills by meeting with the departments to discuss their needs and collaboration efforts with the Database Team, IT managers, and programmers to innovate effective solutions.

Finally, participate in knowledge pooling and put your technical writing skills to when defining your refined procedures, server/service configurations, and department-based information in our MS Online DevOps Wiki to refer to later and for the rest of the team to potentially incorporate into their own projects.
