Hello All. I'll be brief & to the point...I've got a long term client that markets data & analytics to financial and mortgage companies. They're approx 800 employees, $200+M in size and belong to a family of companies comprising an $8B Fortune 300 corporation headquartered here in Orange County (near the 405 & 55 fwy interchange).

The company is stable and looking for a Mid or Jr- level Oracle DBA who isn't looking to jump in a yr. They're mostly Solaris (some Windows & Linux) and their DBA group manages ~120 DBs with 70+ TB. The engineering group is ~50 folks in size. This is a NEW position, it's FT & salaried (I'm just the headhunter). They're targeting a base at or below $100K/yr.

No games on my side. If you're interested, please shoot me an email so we can talk.
