You will be a part of a diverse and talented group of network engineers, supporting a wide variety of technologies for a large health care provider. You will be isolating and repairing network outages, and performing change management in a 7x24 NOC environment. You will have the opportunity to learn, troubleshoot and isolate multiple platforms, both data and voice.
