  • Gather and analyze performance data with network performance tools.
  • Work collaboratively with other teams across functions (e.g., developers, network operations, network architecture) to identify and address next generation networking needs, and lead joint efforts to collaborate on roadmaps for new projects, schedules, and measurables.
  • Provide detailed performance reports and insights to stakeholders, highlighting areas of improvement and recommending actionable steps.
  • Stay updated on the latest trends and best practices in network performance monitoring and optimization.

At a minimum we'd like you to have:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, related field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • 7 years of experience in network performance engineering, with a focus on using analytics and data science tools (Python, R, SQL, etc).
  • 3 years of experience  in using machine learning tools and techniques to analyze network performance data.
  • 5 years of experience with network protocols and technologies, including IP, SDN, NFV, L2/L3 LAN/WAN protocols, BGP, MPLS, QoS, and network virtualization.
  • Ability to interpret complex data sets and identify actionable insights in the networking domain.

It's preferred if you have:

  • MS or PhD in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science with a background in service-provider networking design.
  • Experience operating with telecom / internet service provider networks.
  • Familiarity with machine learning and predictive modeling.
  • 3 years experience with network performance tools such as Wireshark, Nokia DeepField, Cisco ThousandEyes, and NetCracker Network Performance systems.
  • Experience with broadband access network equipment, especially Fiber the to Home (FTTH) systems.
  • Ability to use written and verbal communication to present complex technical information to both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
