About the project

How we hire:

At Pentalog, excellence is what you'll do. We're guided by a mission to positively impact the software development world.

At Pentalog, we constantly strive to provide our clients with cutting-edge solutions by utilizing the most recent tools and technology. One of our newest partners is looking to build a Level 2 IT Engineer team that will provide Level 2 monitoring and administration of Oracle databases for the entities throughout Europe during business and non-business hours. Our client is a French multinational universal bank and financial services holding company.

In order to ensure that the DBA services offered to the business are stable, resilient, and performant, this position focuses on the administration of Oracle databases in the European context. Oracle DBA plays a significant role in this area because it is a baseline component that covers a significant portion of the database's functionality. All Oracle databases, the majority of which are situated in Paris, are under the control of the DBA team's production support.

This role requires a willingness and availability for on-site (hybrid mode) work as needed and providing on-call support when required from the Bucharest office.
