Job Description for Senior Database Administrator (DBA)

Senior database administrators work as team leaders with computer engineering teams in order to create database architecture to accomplish the necessary goals of specialized computer software.

They will also need certification for database administration from an accredited board, such as Oracle. It is possible to forgo acquiring a bachelor's degree, but senior database administrators will require several years of work in similar areas as well as extensive self-education on database administration.
