Senior Network Engineer

| Greater Boston Area

SimpliSafe is looking for a Senior Network Engineer to join our DevOps/IT team. If you're well-versed with Cisco and Juniper and want to collaborate with a dynamic operational team, we want to hear from you. The person we are looking for will keep us connected, secure, PCI compliant, and highly-available across multiple platforms and geographies, while providing visibility into our configuration and traffic patterns. Our networking stack includes Juniper, Netgear, Ruckus, and Cisco Meraki, plus some (virtual) Cisco routers in the cloud. Currently our IT and DevOps teams keep it all working, but now it's time to turn it over to an expert.

About you: 

  • Extensive knowledge and experience with Juniper, Cisco, Meraki and Ruckus gear
  • You believe in doing things right the first time, because you know that’s far more pleasant than doing it badly twice.
  • You smiled knowingly when you first saw xkcd #705.
  • You are eager to be part of a talented DevOps/IT team who can leverage one another for bandwidth, expertise, and growth opportunities.

What you'll be doing (knowing you are part of a team that has your back): 

  • Security
    • Improve local network segregation to better protect critical/high-security traffic
    • Audit and fix existing (especially Cisco) configurations
    • Ensure our equipment is running the latest manufacturer-recommended firmware, and that we are on a sustainable patch schedule
  • High Availability
    • Implement and test failover on core (Juniper) routers and switches
    • Automate failover if possible; if not, write the runbook
    • Build and maintain a deployment pipeline for firmware and configurations for (at least) our access switches. Ideally, this will include our core networking gear and Cisco devices in the cloud
  • Visibility
    • Implement tools to identify traffic patterns within the network, especially sources of abnormally-high bandwidth usage & alert as necessary
    • Help identify problematic equipment for rapid replacement
    • Plan for scale and global growth

Bonus Points for: 

  • Knowledge of VOIP/Asterisk
  • Experience building relationships with external partners/vendors/carriers
  • Automate or improve VPN failover based on tunnel availability, including automating changes to AWS-hosted routing tables
  • Build or improve monitoring tools to detect capacity and availability issues with our Cisco routers

Insider's spotlight

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've changed roles twice since starting as a call center representative for SimpliSafe in 2013. I became a QA Engineer in 2016, and at the beginning of 2018 moved into my current position as the Product Manager for our flagship security system. SimpliSafe has afforded me many opportunities that I don't think I could have gotten at other companies.
