Database Administrator - Resware
Boulder, CO

At Qualia, we've built a new class of real estate technology that simplifies home buying and selling into an easy, understandable, and secure process. Our products bring together users from across the real estate ecosystem---homebuyers and sellers, lenders, title and escrow agents, and real estate agents---onto a single shared platform, providing greater clarity and transparency to real estate transactions. Today, millions of consumers use Qualia to close on homes every year.


As Qualia embarks on its next phase of growth, we are seeking Microsoft SQL Server database administrators to provide support and retained services for customers utilizing our Resware product. This is a crucial role to fuel our continued success and provide value to the customers of this robust and customizable product. Database Administrators will collaborate with our support and services teams to ensure we're providing the best advice and best services to our customers as they scale their businesses with our complex and, often large, database instances. The ideal candidate for this role can readily set up, maintain, troubleshoot and tune locally installed instances of MS SQL Server, but also assist when it is installed in public cloud offerings (primarily AWS and Azure). You'll work on a team to administer but also troubleshoot the database layer of our Resware product, which is used by leading companies in the title insurance industry.
