Network Architect

The Challenge:

A well-designed network is critical to move data and enable our clients to achieve their mission, but how can an organization make sure their network will fit their current and evolving needs? Crafting the right network, with the right equipment and software, requires a combination of technical skill and careful planning. That’s why we need you, a network architect who knows how to craft the exact network our clients need.

As a network architect on our team, you’ll work with our clients to design, implement, and evolve their networks. You’ll collaborate with your peers to learn the strategic goals and operational needs that shape the network requirements. You’ll then share your expertise during the planning of acquisition, installation, configuration, and maintenance of the network components. From resolving interoperability issues across platforms to supporting the acquisition of hardware, you’ll put your hardware and software talents to good use. This is your chance to share your experience while broadening your unified communications network engineering work.
