Turbocampus provides a Student Information System (SIS) for vocational schools. We currently serve just a single client, but are preparing after 6 years of development to offer our service to other clients. Our preference is to outsource all the bits of the business that we can so we are looking for a long-term relationship(s) with an organization or organizations to assist us with server and database administration.
One of the reasons we want to outsource and specifically use Odesk is because we expect that work will be billed on an hourly basis so that our expenses match the work required with an expectation that this will grow as we grow.
With your application please comment on:
• your rate/rates for doing the work
• your experience
• how you would provide coverage as required below.
We recognize that Server and Database Administration really are two different roles. If you feel your organization could best provide excellent support in just one or the other of those roles we would also consider separating those roles.
We are mostly interested in a team that can provide overlapping support, but may consider outstanding individuals.
Please see the attached job description for more complete details.
ADDITIONAL JOB INFO REQUEST:
Our site requires near 24/7 coverage for any server/database issues that might arise. We request that you submit the details of what coverage you/your organization can provide and how you will provide that coverage.
These skills concerning database management will be considered:
Backup up files and images from our server to Amazon Glacier.
Downloading files from Glacier and using them to start an operational instance on Amazon S3.
