NOC Systems Administrator, Junior

The Challenge:

Your combination of people skills and technical expertise makes you the team hero, solving one problem after another. What if you could use those skills to improve the technology supporting the DoD? We’re looking for a systems administrator to support a Network Operations Center (NOC) for a premiere DoD executive communications agency. As a junior systems administrator on the team, you will help the NOC provide 24x7 network administrative support, including scheduling hardware/software installations and upgrades and maintaining them in accordance with established IT policies and procedures.

As a junior systems administrator on our project, you’ll will interface with Tier-I support and end users to understand network issues, and relay all necessary information to ensure that issues can be resolved at a Tier-2 or escalated to senior engineers to resolve at a Tier-3 or Tier-4 level. You’ll learn how to help customers overcome tough challenges through monitoring and performance management. You’ll analyze problem areas and opportunities for improvement in a mission critical network. You’ll be able to combine your technical experience with communication skills as you turn metrics into information and communicate their meaning. This is an opportunity to gain experience in monitoring a redundant, multi-classification enterprise network. We focus on growing as a team, so we’ll share techniques, work through challenges, and develop new methodologies together. Join our team and solve daily challenges as we improve executive communications across the DoD.
