We are looking for a PostgreSQL DBA who can train a group of 6 Oracle DBAs and some developers on PostgreSQL and PostGIS. The training is only two days but there may be an opportunity for a second round. The timeframe is immediate (next week), although we also have the option of rescheduling if necessary.
We will need someone who:
· Is a good trainer:
o Communicates clearly
o Can manage a classroom experience: explain the objectives, make sure students don’t fall behind, make sure faster students don’t get bored, etc.
o Can write a basic lesson plan and come up with lab exercises.
· Knows PostgreSQL very well:
o Can install and configure PostgreSQL on Linux (we’ve already installed it but it needs to be demonstrated)
o Can explain the differences between Oracle and PostgreSQL
o Can install and illustrate PostGIS topics
We would prefer a local candidate in the Bay Area so we can avoid paying for travel and lodging, but don’t let that stop you from applying. Ideally, the candidate would have both prior experience conducting hands-on training sessions, and work experience as a PostgreSQL DBA. Payment is commensurate with experience.
