You may have heard of the "Big Data" revolution that is sweeping across the world of business. Cheaper hardware and advances in software storage systems have made capturing and storing data cheaper than ever. With data coming alive in an unprecedented manner, it is no surprise that the demand for knowledgeable database developers is at an all-time high.
We know that there are all kinds of database developers, with varying levels of knowledge about different platforms and data sources. At InterWorks, we’re more interested in candidates who are hard-working, smart and love what they do. We care more about overall database and analytical skills rather than experience with a certain database platform. Whether you have worked primarily in SQL Server, Oracle, or something else, we only ask that you have a strong understanding of SQL as a whole.
While some companies may hide their database developers away in some dungeon, database developers at InterWorks are social, friendly creatures. That is why being able to communicate with clientele day in and day out is especially valuable. Our database consultants must be able to work closely with users in order to understand their needs and help them best as possible.
You might find it difficult to do the same thing each day at InterWorks. As database developers can expect to work on diverse projects ranging from a few days to several months. Many of these projects include solving business problems using data from some of the largest organizations in the world. Projects also include working with disparate data sources (SQL Server, Oracle, Teradata, DB2, Excel, Text files, etc.) to unify client data, creating ETL processes based on client needs, and managing client expectations.
InterWorks prides itself on having an exciting work environment, with a unique (and downright nerdy) company culture. InterWorks employees are some the most intelligent and friendly people you will ever meet, and they are the primary reason for the success of InterWorks. Joining the InterWorks team as Database Developer means joining a family and our family is growing faster than ever.
