We have two job openings at the University of Pennsylvania for Network Engineers.
1. Network Engineer or Senior Network Engineer
This position is part of our Network Operations group which deploys
and operates Penn's production campus network (data/voice/video), and
the area gigapop (MAGPI - http://www.magpi.net/). This is a
traditional network engineer position requiring expertise in network
protocols at various layers. I expect this job will initially have a
strong focus on design and operation of our wireless network.
2. Senior Network Engineer
This position is part of our Network Engineering group (which I
lead). This group works very closely with Network Operations, offering
final tier escalated support, researching new network designs,
architectures, technologies, evaluating new equipment, designing and
deploying related software and hardware systems. At Penn, the Network
Engineering group also includes folks that run a number of other
systems (DNS, DHCP, Authentication, Authorization, etc). We work with
many cutting edge things (IPv6, DNSSEC, Openflow, etc). The candidate
for this position will generally need to have a strong networking and
programming background, as well as strong familiarity with UNIX and
UNIX-like operating systems.
