SQL Senior Database Administrator (DBA)

At THE ICONIC, innovation drives us; we believe that innovation should not be sitting in a silo team but rather be part of everyone and everything we do & deliver. Every person in tech has a voice and we find that our best products are achieved through collaboration (usually over a coffee in front of a whiteboard).  

We have over 120 people in tech, not to mention 45 nationalities (and counting!) This means that our skills and experience are diverse, allowing for greater collaboration and constant learning. All of our teams are cross-functional, mission-driven and able to iterate from inception to production (DevOps mentality) without being blocked or having to ask permission from other teams. We love to move fast and validate learning using data (lucky for us our Data Science & Analytics team is world-class!)

Our Data Science & Analytics team works to solve complex problems on some of the most sophisticated algorithms to propel our business forward as their insights feed into our decision making. The team is curious, value individual contributions and enjoy learning from each other.
