Job Description / Skills Required

Clover is reinventing health insurance by working to keep people healthier.

We value diversity — in backgrounds and in experiences. Healthcare is a universal concern, and we need people from all backgrounds and swaths of life to help build the future of healthcare. Clover's engineering team is empathetic, caring, and supportive. We are deliberate and self-reflective about the kind of engineering team and culture that we are building, seeking engineers that are not only strong in their own aptitudes but care deeply about supporting each other's growth.

We are looking for an experienced individual in site reliability and infrastructure to join our engineering team. You will start at the ground floor, taking responsibility to shape a team, processes, and norms to build out and manage Clover's technology infrastructure. You will partner with technical leads in other engineering disciplines, as well as data scientists, and technology professionals to build and maintain a modern, scalable infrastructure platform that hosts domestic and international work loads with a variety of compute, storage, and networking needs. We're looking for someone with prior experience deploying and maintaining containerized infrastructure and workloads. Kubernetes competency is highly valued.

As a DBA, you will:

  • Create, configure, size and maintain enterprise databases with high availability.
  • Perform overall health checks and maintenance tasks such as indexing, performance tuning, backup/recovery, and partitioning on the databases at regular intervals.
  • Develop database monitoring, operational processes and procedures/standards that will continually improve the operation of the whole environment.
  • Create and manage ETL packages, triggers, stored procedures, views, and SQL transactions.
  • Develop new and provide support for secure data feeds with external parties as well as internal applications including the data warehouse and business intelligence applications.
  • Perform analysis and QA.
  • Diagnose ETL and database related issues, perform root cause analysis, and recommend corrective actions to management.
  • Work with application developers and engineers to support the design, development, implementation, monitoring, and maintenance of new programs and systems.
  • Effectively communicate technical issues and proposed solutions to key management staff.
  • Triage and help troubleshoot problems, downtime, and alerts.
  • Collaboratively set the direction with the Data Integration Team, clearly establishing objectives that are aligned with Clover's company-level goals.
  • Foster a healthy, results-oriented, and inter-disciplinary culture that is the bedrock of strong teams.
  • Simplify the process by automating the delivery pipeline and database changes.
  • Be the team expert in database/data warehouse performance and operational management across a variety of technologies including Relational and non-relational DBs including Postgres, CloudSQL, BigTable, and BigQuery.

You will love this job if:

  • You enjoy working in a fluid environment, defining and owning priorities that adapt to our larger goals. You can bring clarity to ambiguity while remaining open-minded to new information that might change your mind.
  • You are not hesitant to jump in to help fix things that are broken and you feel great responsibility to make sustainable systems. You are happy to fill in the gaps to reach a goal where necessary, even if it does not always fit your job description.
  • You want to be part of building a team that emphasizes delivery, reliability and security.
  • You have a genuine interest in what good technology can do to help people and have a positive attitude about tackling hard problems in an important industry.

You should get in touch if:

  • You have experience with linux system administration and containerized applications or container based deployment.
  • You have working knowledge of Security first principles and best practices: Least Privilege, Compartmentalization/Isolation, Attack Surface, Authentication/Authorization basics, Symmetric and Asymmetric Encryption.

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records. We are an E-Verify company.
