  • You’d like to create your own bespoke data scripts, using SQL Server to write the custom scripts before deploying them. 
  • You have an interest in database management techniques (such as backups, mirroring, etc) and general programming techniques. 
  • You want to be a data expert, fielding questions regarding client requirements, providing support for issues encountered and bringing new ideas to ensure that work can be carried out efficiently and effectively.

Crucially, you want to work for a SaaS product-focused company committed to world domination within the recruitment sector!
