Dillon Software is looking for a Database Developer and DevOps engineer to join our team.  This is a hybrid position - about half your time will be spent designing schema objects and writing pgplsql (Postgres) or plsql (Oracle) procedures and functions, tuning queries, etc.  The other half of your time will be spent proactively looking for issues, providing operational support (credentials for new users, security audits, etc.) and devops support for not only the databases but other backend resources - REST and GraphQL services, even JSP/servlet applications.

Only individual candidates located in the United States and meeting all the requirements need apply. No agencies or firms - domestic or offshore. Candidates not meeting all the requirements will not be considered. This is a remote, 1099 contractor position. If applying, please include your resumé, three recent professional references, and your hourly billing rate.

  • PostgreSQL 9.6, 10.x
  • Oracle 11gR2
  • SQL query optimization in both PostgreSQL and Oracle environments
  • devops for a full suite of AWS resources - RDS, EC2/EC2, SQS, Elastic Beanstalk, ElastiCache, DynamoDB, Lambdas, S3

In addition to the requirements, we would also strongly favor candidates with the following experience:

  • node.js, AWS Lambda
  • Data partitioning and sharding
  • NoSQL data stores, particularly DynamoDB, MongoDB
  • Redshift

About Dillon Software, Inc.

Dillon Software is a team of 30 highly skilled system architects, designers, and developers delivering web and mobile applications to clients in the entertainment, financial and manufacturing industries.  Our core strengths are Java technologies and relational databases, web, iOS, and Android applications.  For the right candidate, we offer challenging long-term projects, a large degree of creative input, location and scheduling flexibility, and the opportunity to interact with a great bunch of people who are at the top of their respective fields.

We strive for perfection as much as possible.  Service and quality are what distinguish us from our competitors.  If you're accustomed to delivering "good enough", this is not the right position for you.  Code formatting, variable names, unit test structure, appropriate use of whitespace, spelling, and grammar in comments and written communications - all these things are very important to us.  Great code is like a race car - high functionality and performance for the intended task, but every detail is beautiful and thoroughly engineered.

Based in beautiful Whitefish, Montana, we have a diverse team of remote professionals from New York to California and points in between.  You must be very comfortable working on a geographically dispersed team - and you must have the personality type that allows others to feel comfortable working with you.


  • Join an outstanding team of seasoned developers
  • Fun, engaging long term projects
  • Startup excitement but with no funding worries
