Job Description:

  • L2/L3 Networking experience within Juniper and Palo (panorama) – candidate will be involved in a switch upgrade project for Juniper
  • Ticketing relating to higher level network and system administration issues
  • Candidates need a good blend of networking and systems experience. Candidates needs to be willing to learn and open to helping with other things such as systems since IT team is relatively small.
  • Siloed experience or candidates that want to be siloed will not work well here. Needs candidates that are self-starters, eager to learn, willing to help others, initiative “I’m going to fix that”
  • (Pure, NetApp, Nutanix, HPE, Cloudian, VMware) migration experience within these technologies will be huge.
  • Active Directory
  • Juniper switch
  • Experience in at least 3 of the 5 categories:
    • Networking – Juniper/Palo
    • System Administration: Any combination of the 3, Mac is a plus
      • Windows
      • Mac
      • Linux – Ubuntu highly preferred
    • Cloud engineering – AWS, Azure, GCP (any of the 3, the more the better)

Looking for a Tier 3 level engineer, almost at the level of a Solutions Architect as this person will be involved in guiding the team to make decisions/provide suggestions relating to storage/virtualization technology. VMware, Pure Storage and Rubrik will all be up for renewal in about 12 months so this person will be involved in the process of assessing new technology to potentially integrate/migrate to and will assist in that migration. 

Top priority will be storage and virtualization migration experience. Look at candidates strong in (Pure, NetApp, Nutanix, HPE, Cloudian, VMware) migration experience within these technologies will be huge. Someone who handles support requests for storage and virtualization as well – VMware/Broadcom escalation support has been a problem for them. 

On the systems side (Windows/Mac/Linux) need to be able to help Tier 1 team from time to time.. but mostly will be involved in helping with higher level problem resolution. Active Directory.. Junior gave an example of “setting up AD from scratch”. 

For network.. that is lower on the priority list but still a need. Someone who has done Juniper switch upgrades would be ideal. 

Personality and work ethic is crucial here.. They need go-getter mentality. Someone who likes helping solve problems and help others as well. This person will be working alongside IT management, may be present and assist senior leadership and researchers. TRI is a complex environment. There is great opportunity for someone to learn here and get involved with a unique, dynamic organization.
