DBA needed in Austin, TX

'Needed' is kind of strong. We've got a position open, but we're not real needy folks. We're a school district. The 37th (depending on the day of the week) largest in the United States. If we were a business, it'd be pretty good-sized. Our annual operating budget is 730 million dollars plus
(of which MIS gets a really small, tiny, little itty bit), we have 15,000
employees, 130 branch offices, our own police force and post office. We fix 150,000 meals a day and need to collect cash or validate for every person through the cafeterias. We're moving from a mainframe environment to client-server computing with an Oracle back-end running on HPUX and Linux for both our student data and ERP systems. It's a pretty dynamic shop. We've got 40 or so people (depending on the day of the week) split into three areas, business systems, student systems and programming. We don't do the network piece, but that's solid - switched gigabit ethernet running on over 300 miles of fiber with 100MB to the desktop.

I don't hire or set salaries. HR does that. I only recommend. The salary for this position will be somewhere between $60K and $80K depending on experience (and whatever bizarre decisions are reached by the compensation analyst).

You've got to be REAL strong in backup and recovery. And curious. We're planning to go where no school district (or very few) has gone before. Your assistance will be vital in making the investment Austin has made in technology pay off.

If you've got any questions, please send me an email. If you'd like to apply, you can do so on-line at

Under 'classified' positions, see if you can find the DBA position. If it isn't there (depending on the day of the week), and you can't possibly wait, apply for either the Programmer/Analyst or UNIX Admin position. It should be there sometime after 4pm CDT, or maybe tomorrow, or maybe not. [We don't do the Internet piece - yet].
