As a Lead Database Migration Consultant, your primary responsibility is the successful migration of large datasets from an Oracle database system to a comparable PostgreSQL RDBMS.
The Oracle installations will range in both size and complexity. The migration operation itself may be simple or complex, requiring multiple steps over an extended span of time.
The data-sets can be sized anywhere from several hundred gigabytes to many petabytes. The cluster's configuration will be variable and can be as simple as a standalone server or as complex as a multi-node cluster with automated failover between data centers with an uptime requirement of 4 9s.
You will execute "out of the box" solutions as you leverage the myriad technologies, methods and best practices in your arsenal.
You are comfortable using the various PostgreSQL tools and extensions such as foreign data wrappers, and the ora2pg extension.
Equally so, you are familiar with standard enterprise tools often seen in Oracle environments such as GoldenGate. You will work remotely and most people work from their homes.
Up to 50% travel is expected (as safety regulations permit), both for onsite projects and internal meetings.
What You Will Do

What Will Make You Stand Out
