Job Description



OVERVIEW

CDNetworks is looking for an experienced, hands-on networking engineer to support global network engineering and operations for the world’s 2nd largest CDN.

Successful candidates will have demonstrated BGP network management experience for a large, geographically-distributed network, a strong understanding of network operational standards and best practices, hands-on troubleshooting skills, excellent written and verbal communication skills, experience working with other teams (especially service operations and engineering), and the desire to employ those skills in a fast-paced, dynamic, 24x7x365, mission-critical environment. 

 

RESPONSIBILITIES

Network Operations

  • Support BGP and IGP network operations, including device, network, and traffic troubleshooting and administration 
  • Support day-to-day service operations in the Americas and globally
  • Co-work with network and other operational teams in other regions (China, Japan, Korea, Europe)

Planning and Project Management

  • Plan, lead, and implement network improvement projects
  • Build POPs and support new product launches

By delivering this performance on demand, CDNetworks eliminates costly IT infrastructure buildout and technical staffing costs for our customers.

BENEFITS

  • Work on the 2nd largest CDN on the planet with smart people developing next-generation CDN technology and having a great time doing it
