About the Opportunity

 

OpenSky is looking for an experienced network security engineer with a solid consultative background in design and delivery to support the firewall infrastructure for a large enterprise client. The consultant will be part of the client’s network team providing support for firewall and DNS requests, changes and issues.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Provide implementation, configuration and production support activities for an existing CheckPoint and ASA firewall infrastructure.
  • Provide support for client service requests for firewall and DNS changes.
  • Provide support for client request fulfillment automation projects as these are offered.
  • Participate in related projects and activities with the network support team as time and background permit.

About You

  • 2 or more years of background supporting Cisco-based routing and switching infrastructure in large enterprise environments
  • Solid experience configuring and supporting either CheckPoint or Cisco ASA firewall infrastructure
  • Experience in implementation of automation solutions to improve productivity and reduce time required for change implementation
  • Experience working with cloud network infrastructure with any cloud provider (AWS and Azure preferred)
  • Good verbal and written documentation skills
  • Must be a good self-starter and able to balance multiple concurrent activities
  • Ability to collaborate and work on a team
