Company: NTT DATA Services

THIS IS A 100% REMOTE POSITION IN THE U.S.

 

NTT DATA is looking for an Infrastructure Engineer who has multiple domains of expertise across various types of infrastructure technologies. The position does not require being an expert in all of the areas but just more than one and conversational about the others.   The combination should be a number across server (Windows/Linux, VMware vSphere, x86 physical servers such as blade or rack-mount systems), storage (enterprise SAN platforms), network (Cisco Catalyst / Nexus, F5, NSX-T, etc.), security (firewall edge/perimeter, NextGen type FWs), Directory Services (Active Directory, LDAP, etc.), VDI (Horizon, Citrix, etc.), and Azure.   

 

The role is a project engineer so that the focus is entirely on planning, implementation, and some limited post-deployment hyper-care support until operations have fully come up to speed (usually no more than a few weeks).   This is a role that is not involved with the handling of incident tickets or service requests by end-users, and instead will be working on new infrastructure implementation and strategic forecasting on infrastructure needs to meet the client’s business demands.

 

The role will be paired with the client's architectural leads to strategize as well as implement new technologies for the client.   They are expected to be a trusted advisor with infrastructure technology and help align projects where they can by working with project managers, account management, and client leadership in the realm of infrastructure services.
