Junior SQL Data Platform Engineer - Reading - £25-30k + Bonus

This role requires you to work from the Reading-based office long term. To be eligible for this role you must have the unrestricted right to work in the UK - this organisation is not able to offer sponsorship.

A company with an unparalleled reputation in SQL Server and MS Data Platform are seeking a Junior Database Engineer to join their support team as they continue a period of growth that begun at the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis as companies looked to them to keep their systems working as best as possible.

The Role

You'll work as part of a dedicated support team, responding to a huge range of client problems relating to their SQL Server/Azure/AWS Data Platforms. Problems will range from simple to simple to complex, with no two days the same.

You'll be tested in not only your problem solving skills but also your customer service/management, responsible for not only solving their issues, but also helping non-technical audiences in preventing further issues.

In return, the company will mould you into a SQL Server/Azure Data Platform expert within a relatively short space of time, utilising their dedicated learning and development path which takes advantage of in-house Microsoft-Certified Trainers and MS Certifications on offer.

This role is currently full remote until further notice. Candidates should be ideally located within commutable distance of Wokingham, Berkshire, or if based further afield should be willing and able to commute there 50% of the time when the office reopens.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • SQL Fault finding/fixing
  • SQL Database performance tuning, maintenance and upgrades
  • Direct customer support over email/phone


To be a good fit for this role you should have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, and be hardworking, resilient and ready to learn. You should also have the following skills:

  • At least a year of working with SQL Server version 2012 and above, ideally in support capacity
  • Experience in a customer-facing role and excellent customer-service skills
  • Strong interest in data and the latest technology, as well as an appreciation of emerging cloud technologies


  • Up to £30,000 Starting Salary
  • On call allowance of £8,000 per year (usually begins after 6 months in the role)
  • Performance-related bonus
  • Excellent learning+development opportunities, including MS Certifications
