Entry-level SQl Server Developer

About the Role

 

You have one or two in-depth, real-world experiences working with an enterprise RDBMS (SQL Server is ideal), and know that you excel at SQL data structures. Plain-vanilla enterprise application building leaves you wanting more, though—you’re curious about large or complex data (financial, accounting, or similar), flexible data structures, and extensibility. You’re self-motivated, enjoy hands-on work, and want your next career step to take you in a direction with tougher challenges, pushing the limits of metadata-driven structures that feed a dynamic multi-tier architecture.
