Junior SQL Developer

viagogo are looking to recruit a graduate/junior SQL developer to join our Database & Business Intelligence team in central London.

You'll be working with cutting edge technology and solving real business problems from day one. Our team is responsible for the management of viagogo's data platform for both our operational and reporting needs. Working in a tight-knit team of database experts you'll quickly be working with a plethora of varied technologies that sit at the pinnacle of the current Microsoft DB/BI stack:

  • Availability Groups (SQL 2014 Enterprise)
  • SQL Azure Database
  • In-memory (Hekaton) OLTP
  • Clustered Columnstore
  • Power BI

We're currently looking forward to the release of SQL2016, and are already evaluating how we'll be able to best leverage some of the exciting things coming our way (Stretch DB, R Services, Temporal Tables, New-look SSRS, Querystore…).

This role is a fantastic opportunity for someone who not only wants to come and solve problems (at the end of the day we still need to write SQL and take care of our databases!), but also wants to be exposed to some open & forward-thinking individuals who are in love with the product & their craft.

If you're curious and always keen to learn more about how something works and you're able to tie that with pragmatic execution then viagogo might be the right place for you.

The kind of projects you might have to work on would include:

  • Understand a technology/feature and produce a proof of concept that demonstrates how it might solve a problem
  • Write queries to provide answers to ad-hoc requests for analysis, or formal report requirements
  • Tune the production systems to ensure we have the performance and scalability required
  • Work with analysts/developers to design a system to support product features


  • Minimum 2.1 in a computing or related degree
  • Basic knowledge of SQL/relational databases (Any platform - MSSQL/MySQL/Postgres/etc.)
  • Able to work in the UK
  • A desire to build a career around data & technology

If you are passionate and enthused by tehcnology then we would love to hear from you.
