Experience in monitoring, performance tuning and managing NoSQL clusters.
Strong understanding of complex query tuning
In-depth knowledge of architecting, developing on, and optimizing NoSQL database systems
Experience in data structure design, data modelling for NoSQL use cases
JVM tuning a definite plus
Experience with identifying hardware and software related issues
