The selected candidate will work as the primary Engineer for a customer who requires existing Excel  data to be migrated into a new relational database model hosted in a Cloud environment. The customer will assist the requirements definition and end user roles so the candidate can focus on the translation of those requirements into actionable development of the relational database.  An assessment of the appropriate database vendor/provider has not yet been done, and the candidate will need to complete that as part of this project.

  • Create, test, and validate a relational database built on a mature database application (SQL, etc.) hosted in an AWS Cloud environment.
  • Assist in the requirements definition based on end user roles and other interactions with the customer and their user base.
