Application for the position of Database Engineer

Dear Head of Recruitment,

As a Software Engineer with 3 years of experience working on database engines, I apply with enthusiasm for this position.

I am currently a Database Engineer at GF Group, where I joined a team of 2 three years ago and now guide 58 colleagues globally in all areas of database design, performance, and reliability. Mirroring your requirements, I:

  • Write SQL procedures, scripts, and queries to select, insert, update, delete and report data out to endpoints
  • Optimize databases (e.g. add indexes, build additional collections, generate statistics, optimize execution plans)
  • Debug issues with client systems, both in the cloud and on-premises installations
  • Delegate tasks to global team members based on strengths and areas of client expertise

In addition to my professional experience, I hold a Bachelor of Computer Science and am highly proficient in all required technologies including Microsoft SQL Server, MongoDB, MySQL, Oracle, and Improvado.

I have loved every minute of my time at GF Group. As they are relocating their head office to Glasgow, I am now seeking a stimulating opportunity closer to home.

Please find attached my resume for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours faithfully,

Kevin Schutz
