Network SRE

My client, a leading algorithmic trading company is seeking an experienced Network SRE who understands how networks function at a fundamental level, considers how problems can be solved using a broad array of tools and techniques and is not limited to using off-the-shelf or open-source components.

The Role:

You may have been a network engineer, designer and/or architect and moved beyond core switching/routing into automating and monitoring everything possible by means of code. Fundamental computer science knowledge is important but being self-taught is just as valid as a degree.

The role offers the opportunity to learn more about hardware, operating systems, the applications that run on them, Python/Go development, AWS and storage. In addition, you will work directly with teams responsible for developing and running trading and post-trade systems among others. Prior finance knowledge is not required.

Candidates must have the following skills / experience:

  • Strong network engineering and architecture skills.
  • Knowledge of switch internals, Ethernet and IP routing, including but not limited to:
    • VPN and tunnelling protocols (IPSec, GRE, MPLS).
    • Routing protocols (BGP, OSPF/ISIS, LDP/RSVP-TE).
    • Working with multiple network vendors and network operating systems such as IOS-XE, NX-OS, EOS, Junos.
    • Firewall configuration and debugging.
  • Network automation, management and monitoring via code, working with different API transports (CLI-based, RESTCONF, NETCONF, gNMI).
  • Ability to write code (not just scripts) in a language such as Python or Go.
  • Can identify and mitigate network risks and issues.
  • Very comfortable at the Linux command line.
