Network Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

A well-designed cloud network is critical to move data and enable organizations 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.

You’ll work with forward leaning organizations to design, develop, and manage highly resilient and reliable networks that support critical missions for our clients. You’ll collaborate with cloud engineers and key stakeholders 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 cloud technologies while broadening your network engineering work.
