Director of Network Engineering

Why you would like it:

- Highly innovative and disruptive organisation growing rapidly

- Work global clients both here and aboard

- Fully functioning bar and BBQ area
The opportunity:
Time for a revolution - we are taking tried and tested systems and infusing inspired ingenuity to get things running like clockwork. A drive to automate with devilishly clever engineering in all we do has put us into a world of our own. Already delivering a world-class infrastructure locally and with global aspirations, there's a lot on the horizon to sink your teeth into. You will be joining at a pivotal time in the business' history, will provide key insight that will help guide the direction heading forward and be looked to for your technical expertise.

Company profile:
Rebelling against the norm we have built an inspired, professional and reliable (but never boring) culture, engineering an environment with real character. With a philosophy in complying not conforming to the industry, we have a unique recipe for success. As one of the big four networking infrastructure providers in New Zealand and, primarily focussing on B2B, we have flown under the radar. In a newly retrofitted office, keeping the best (the bar) and giving an industrial overhaul to the rest has created a wicked place to work and hang out. Poised now with new leadership we want to craft new tools and products, to disrupt and build a new future.

Role snapshot:
You'll have an international focus to your role and treated an expert in your area by the wider team. Design, upgrade and configure routing and switching architecture, ensuring network security, monitoring and measurement infrastructure are all in place. You'll also take responsibility for the system that manages the network configurations and develop new management tools. A customer-driven approach is front of mind as you work to deliver the right solution for our environment and you will be given the autonomy to deep dive into solutions and bring your own creations to life. 

Your responsibilities will include:
  • People leadership
  • Solution architecture 
  • Client engagement 
  • Install, Build & Maintain our Core IP Network

The fit (of the ideal candidate):
  • Experience building and managing a large scale telco network 
  • A keenness for automation where possible
  • Juniper Routing & Switching (MX, EX, ACX & QFX platforms)
  • Nokia / Alcatel-Lucent BNG Platform (7750-SR)
  • Nokia / Alcatel-Lucent SAS Switching platform (7210 SAS)
  • Firewall experience (Fortigate, Juniper SRX)
  • MPLS / VPLS / eVPN
  • E-LAN & E-Line services
  • VMware virtualisation platform
  • Familiar with SIP-based voice networks
  • Strong Linux & scripting/automation skills advantageous
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Desire to be part of a team that think outside of the box, while being able to look at the bigger picture

Please note that to be considered for this role you will need to hold a valid NZ Work Visa or NZ Residency or NZ Citizenship.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person. If you're looking to join a top-class organisation with great progression opportunities, send me through your CV as soon as you can.
