Job Description

Senior Network Engineer - 4th line above NOC
Paying circa £65k-£75k plus 15% bonus and industry leading benefits
Based in Hemel Hempstead

The Opportunity
Our client are a well known telecoms service provider with a market leading reputation for working environment, training and development prospects. They are a Cisco gold partner that will support and encourage you to reach your technical goals, and give you the opportunity to shape long term technical plans for the organisation.

This senior network engineering role will sit above their NOC in a 4th line capacity and is routing and switching focused. Technical environment is mixed between Cisco and Juniper and you'll need load balancer experience.

This is an exciting time for the business, and you'll have a chance to play a real part when it comes to shaping how things will work on the core network providing cutting edge wireless / wi-fi solutions.

What will you be involved with?

It's a varied role, and alongside final point of technical support you'll also be looking to take a lead when it comes to defining and maintaining the technical architecture including:

oMoving to a Cloud based infrastructure
oRe-architecture of current infrastructure to merge into a simpler solution
oBuild and documentation of the current outstanding design and 3rd/4th line support for both new and existing solutions
oContribute towards the roadmap for changes & enhancements to products and solution architecture.

In addition, you'll provide support to the pre-sales function and that will include helping out with technical knowledge for bids and tenders.

The Candidate:
It's a senior network engineering role for a national ISP that are looking to vastly increase their public wi-fi offering. The role sits above a NOC, so prior 4th line R&S network engineering experience is what we need and you'll need to be able to point to load balancing, VMWare, Security and Radius knowledge and we are thinking you'll either be a CCNP / CCIE or a JNCIP / JNCIE.

If you have experience with WIFI technology providers such as Cisco, Aerohive, Ruckus or Meraki then that would be huge, but this is a Cisco or Juniper R&S position as the key, the wi-fi would just be a bonus.

The Package
Paying circa £65k-£75k (depending on experience)
Performance related bonus opportunities, KPI linked, 15% of basic salary
Contributory pension scheme, matched up to 6%
25 days' holiday each year plus 8 bank holidays
Your birthday off
Personal company funded medical plan
