Sr Database Administrator Sparta Systems
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED About Sparta
This is a rare opportunity to join a fast-paced growth oriented product development company. Sparta Systems is the leader in Enterprise Quality Management Systems and has been growing and profitable for many years. Our R&D organization has benefitted from sustained investment increases over the past 2 years and is expected to continue to grow in 2014. We recently moved into our new state of the art Headquarters in Hamilton, NJ. The "Sparta Innovation Center" is an entire floor for our technical team complete with war rooms for collaboration, ample conference space with integrated flat screen displays, whiteboard painted walls throughout, and a brightly lit (real light from the outside) open layout. Every member of R&D enjoys new workspace furniture, brand new modern laptop and two wide-screen displays mounted on adjustable arms. We offer opportunities to grow technical skills by attending conferences and training courses as well as nominations for select staff members to peel away from product development to participate in research projects where needed. Personal development training is also available to all employees. While we are growing every day and working with top companies in the industry, we have preserved a smaller company feel where we find time for company activities, participating in the company's Give Back program, play games in our employee forum area, and have a company sponsored lunch together every Friday. This is truly a great place to build your career while contributing to the company's success.
