    Database Administrator

    A database administrator (DBA) is the person who manages the databases for an organization through the use of either application software and existing systems, or design, engineer, install, and maintain a brand new database. The DBA must have an extensive understanding of database queries, theories, server systems, and computing skills in order to work successfully for a company. Oftentimes, it may be a requirement that a Database Administrator has at least a bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science in addition to certifications in database administration.
