Database Administrator Jobs

Database Administrator Job Description

Database Administrators (also known as DBAs) are skilled IT professionals who use computers and specialized software to manage, organize and secure data. They also ensure that data is easily accessible to select users, while putting measures in place to protect the system from unauthorized access. Other duties of a DBA may include, ensuring that data remains clearly defined and consistent, creating data backups, troubleshooting database management systems (DBMS), controlling user privileges as well as customizing new applications to improve efficiency. They may work as general-purpose DBAs or system DBAs, responsible for technical repairs and upgrades. They may also work as Application DBAs—charged with creating unique applications that can work with the database.

Depending on the size of the company, Database Administrators may work alone or as part of a team alongside other IT professionals such as data analysts, network engineers and data engineers. While most DBAs work full time, some companies employ DBAs as contractors to handle specific projects. Their duties may involve anything from managing company financial records to organizing customer information. DBAs are often found in industries that rely on large databases, such as online stores, insurance companies and tech firms. In addition to being skilled in SQL and other applications, most database administrators have a degree in computer science or a related field. The demand for DBAs has been on a steady rise. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as more companies expand their needs, the job employment for DBAs is expected to grow by 11 percent between 2016 and 2026.
