NetScout Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

A well-designed network is critical to move data and enable DoD agencies 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 engineer who knows how to craft the exact network DoD needs.

As a network engineer on our team, you’ll work with the DoD to design and build a reliable network to support national defense. You’ll collaborate with customers, users, and SMEs 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 with MPLS, BGP, OSPF, and other backbone network technologies while broadening your network engineering work. Join us as we help protect the national defense network.
