- development DBA probably meaning the DBA will handles the performance, maintenance, tuning and uptime related only to the  database that is use by the developer for application development. that is before the development site to be migrated to production site.

There is no standard description that can highlight difference between a production and development DBA. If you are expert in SQL, PLSQL (most DBA's are), performance tuning, migration, etc., and of course database system.

It also depends on the size of the company, in a small shop a DBA generally performs a lot more tasks than a DBA for a very large company where they have more than 1 DBA.

Hope you are not planning on forwarding response from here to your manager :)

A Development DBA could also be responsible for development of the database pieces of the application like stored procedures, table/index definition, etc...

Typically a production DBA isn't allowed to touch/tweak things.  They are mainly there to ensure disaster recovery and performance.  If issues are discovered, they are provided to development to address.  They can be valuable to assist development to ensure there aren't any issues once things are moved into production.

As posted above, there is no standard definitions.  It is specific to the business and how they run things.  Just about every shop is different.

In some shops, development DBA's and production DBA's are pretty much the same.

I found that job descriptions vary from company to company, so it is hard to define a particular title. What is a development DBA in one company could be completely different from another company
