-because the sole DBA, need to be very self directed. if were first or primary DBA in past, that's good but also need to be open to collaboration (issue with the last person). will be partnering with devops team too.

-absolute must have is virtual machine experience. (moving physical boxes to virtual machines)

-also expert SQL

-SSIS, SSRS isn't necessarily a must have b/c the data engineers have that knowledge. it's a bonus if they do have that

-interview: 30 min phone interview with sr. data engineer, then 2 hours onsite.

-can be a little flex on the rate, but depending on how high, may hurt their chances of being able to convert.

-ok if have sql development experience, but need to be at least 70% DBA
