  • Experience with Cosmos DB or other document database technologies.
  • Experience with SQL databases on-premises or in Azure.
  • Experience with database backup/restore patterns, replication, and disaster recovery.
  • Experience with data cataloging, setting security protocols, and access control (e.g., familiarity with Azure AD).

  • Experience with general Azure administration, e.g., resource provisioning.
  • Work with lead backend engineers and data architects to build core OLTP models and design interfaces and contracts for the data engineers and beyond (i.e., warehouse team).
