From a mailing list I am on:
Apologies for the broad email, but Uday Sreekanth, the Deputy CTO/Data Architect for the campaign, mentioned to me the campaign is in need of an experienced DBA to augment their efforts.
Here is the job description below from Uday:
The Obama for America campaign has an immediate need for an experienced DBA to manage our data analytics and targeting, managed in a MySQL database. A majority of the work will be centered around importing data frequently from external vendors, and writing, monitoring and optimizing scripts that
transform the imported data. Fluency with SQL and scripting is a must, and experience with MySQL is preferred. Most importantly, this person must be able to start working in downtown Chicago right away, as we have just a short amount of time to election day!
- Campaign will assist in finding (free) supporter housing
- US citizens and permanent residents only
If you have any candidates, please have them contact Uday Sreekanth at Uday [at] barackobama.com.
