As an Azure Data Engineer, you will play a crucial role in the assessment, planning, and seamless migration of on-premises SQL Server environments to Azure SQL. This position requires expertise in database administration, Azure services, and proficiency in C# programming for Azure Functions development.
Assessment and Planning:
  • Evaluate existing on-site SQL Server environment.
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to gather requirements for Azure SQL migration.
  • Develop a comprehensive migration plan, considering downtime, data transfer, and compatibility.

Database Migration:
  • Utilize Azure Database Migration Service (DMS) or relevant tools for seamless migration to Azure SQL.
  • Ensure data integrity and consistency during the migration process.
  • Minimize downtime and disruptions to ongoing operations.

Azure SQL Configuration:
  • Configure Azure SQL databases, servers, and related services based on requirements.
  • Optimize Azure SQL performance and scalability.
  • Implement security measures, including access controls and encryption.

Replication of Processes:
  • Replicate existing on-premises SQL Server processes and jobs in Azure SQL.
  • Ensure scheduled tasks, backups, and maintenance plans are transferred and configured appropriately.

Data Ingestion from 3rd Party Vendors:
  • Understand APIs provided by various 3rd party vendors.
  • Design and implement robust data ingestion processes tailored to each vendor's API.
  • Develop efficient workflows for the extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) of external data into Azure SQL databases.
  • Implement SQL replication when necessary for data synchronization.
  • Ensure the security and integrity of ingested data from external sources.

Azure Services Integration:

  • Design and implement Azure Functions for specific tasks or processes.
  • Integrate Azure Functions into workflows for data processing and transformation.

Performance Monitoring and Optimization:
  • Implement monitoring solutions for Azure SQL to track performance metrics and ensure the completion of data migration functions/jobs. Enable the ability to restart these functions/jobs in case of errors and configure SMS/Email notifications for severe issues.
  • Identify and address performance bottlenecks; optimize queries for efficiency.

Troubleshooting and Support:
  • Provide support during and after migration to address any technical issues.
  • Collaborate with Azure support services when needed.

  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, Information Technology, or a related field.
