What's your new role about?

This is a fantastic new opportunity to join our diverse and expanding global network support team. As a NOC engineer, you will be responsible for ensuring maximum possible service availability and performance, provision of customer network services on core equipment and supporting Engineering Tech teams. As a NOC Engineer, you must have a solid understanding of Cisco products and processes, be a clear and effective communicator and be able to use initiative to tackle a broad range of problems. However, we don’t expect you to have all the required knowledge as many of the skills can be picked up through experience on the job, including development of network and system administration, particularly with regard to DAZN’s own Architecture and Platforms.  

To be successful in this role, you will need a “Can-do” attitude, be a clear communicator and work well as part of a team. The NOC is run on a 24x7 coverage weekly rota, so you must be willing to work shifts.

HERE'S A BREAKDOWN OF WHAT YOU'LL DO

  • Manage and maintain the Solarwinds monitoring systems (these report on the status and performance of DAZN’s network, ISP services and facilities).
  • Fault handling and handling escalations through to resolution (including liaising with 3rd party suppliers).
  • Maintaining hardware serial audits.
  • Management of power usage and link utilization, running H&S/housekeeping checks at DAZN’s POPs.
  • Maintenance of Confluence and technical documentation of NOC processes and procedures.
  • Support for co-location, customer backup network and ISP services.

YOU'LL NEED TO HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS

  • Minimum of 1 year experience within an equivalent technical support role.
  • Basic knowledge of the OSI Model, switching and routing technologies.
  • Knowledge of Linux Kernel, command line and system diagnostics.
  • Basic understanding of Network Monitoring Concepts and management tools.
  • Able to collate and interpret data from various sources.
  • Able to assess faults, prioritise, respond and escalate accordingly.

IT'D BE GREAT IF YOU HAD THESE TOO

  • Proven track record within a NOC, IT or ISP environment.
  • Previous experience in monitoring tools and protocols (Solarwinds, SNMP).
  • Experience configuring internet applications such as Apache, Exim, BIND.
  • Strong network diagnostic skills.
