Database Administrator


Database Administrator

Database Administrators use specialized software to store and organize data so that users can securely access the information, such as customer or vendor information, that they need. Database Administrators help design, maintain, backup, and secure an organization's databases as well as create reports requested by users. Database Administrators must have extensive knowledge of database systems and expertise in the specific software, such as Salesforce, Oracle, or MySQL, used by their organization.

  • When someone you know has a computer problem, its pretty likely you are the one they call for help
  • As a child you begged your parents to attend robotics or video game programming camp
  • You pride yourself for being able to figure new software applications, the digital universe just makes sense to you
  • When you are working (or playing) on a screen you tend to get “sucked in”, you barely notice the time.
