What you’ll do day-to-day
Infrastructure Engineering designs and maintains the firm's operating systems (Linux and Windows), authentication systems, databases, virtualization infrastructure, core network services, and messaging in both our internal- and external-facing environments. This engineer will be tasked with the design, implementation, and integration of infrastructure systems, particularly—but not exclusively—on network devices, protocols, and systems that underpin our infrastructure.
Who we’re looking for
- Candidates should have a degree in computer science (or another technical discipline) or comparable work experience. Proficiency in Python and/or Java (or similar languages) is required.
- Knowledge of networking devices (e.g., Cisco, Palo Alto, or other similar vendors), protocols, systems, tooling, and automation (e.g., using Python or other open source/vendor products) are also prerequisites.
- Previous experience with the design and end-to-end implementation of performant, reliable, and secure network systems is desired, as are superb troubleshooting capabilities and experience with diagnostic/tracing tools on both endpoint devices (e.g., Linux and/or Windows) and vendor network devices.
- Familiarity with common enterprise and datacenter networking devices and security or management tools—or knowledge of software-defined networking protocols and solutions—is preferred but is not required.
