Job Description

Credit Karma is taking the convoluted world of personal finances and making it easy to understand. We are uniquely positioned to help our 80 million (and counting!) users take control of their financial lives.

As a Senior Database Administrator, you will be instrumental in the performance and scale of Credit Karma's infrastructure. We have a distributed architecture utilizing MySQL for the delivery of our product.

You'll be working to improve the availability and reliability of these key systems, analyzing performance, and taking our infrastructure to the next level.

Our ideal candidate

* You have 4 or more years of database administration with Mysql.
* Solid understanding of database system internals, and their impact on query and system performance.
* You have 4 or more years of experience working in production environments at scale, and want to improve our availability and performance.
* Writing a script should come as second nature to you, and you should have experience with Python, Bash, Ruby, or Perl.
* Systems often need to be reconfigured, so you should have experience with a configuration management system like Puppet, Chef or Salt. (We use Salt.)
* You should be able to clearly communicate technical details when speaking or writing.
* Working in the cloud is a little different, so it would be great if you have some experience with AWS or GCP.
* Our environment often has new challenges and technologies, so we want a candidate who is excited to learn.

We are ecstatic to meet you and have you join our growing team!
