__Required Experience__
Do you have what it takes? We are looking for a solid blend of the following skills. At least 10 years of experience architecting enterprise solutions from concept to actual build out and operation.
__Required Technical Competencies__
Ability to lead technical working sessions
Comfortable running workshops and presenting to customers
Strong knowledge of network and systems design principles including routers, switches, firewalls and load balancers
Platform skill set for Switch:
3500 through 4900 Series switches
6500 Catalyst Series (FWSM, ACE, CSM, SSL Modules)
Nexus 5k and 7k series
Experienced knowledge with:
EIGRP, OSPF, RIP, LACP, SVI, VRF, OTV/VPLS 802.xx Protocols, etc.
Platform skill set for Router:
2800 through 4900 Series routers
Experienced knowledge with:
MPLS, EIGRP, OSPF, RIP, BGP, VRF, VPN. 802.xx Protocols, etc.
Platform skill set for VPN/Firewall:
Various vendors and models but mostly,
Cisco Pix 500 series
Cisco ASA5500 through ASA5585 Appliances
Cisco FWSM
Juniper/Netscreen SA and SG/ISG Appliances
Checkpoint (UTM-1, IPSO SecurePlatfrom, GAIA platforms) Open Server SPLAT
Experienced knowledge with:
VPN Site-to-Site, Thin Client, Full Tunnel, SSL AnyConnect/WebVPN, GRE Tunnels, Trustpoints, Access-lists, DMZ environments, 802.xx Protocols, etc.

Various vendors and models,
F5 Big-IP LTM and GTM Appliances
Cisco CSS, ACE, CSM Modules and Appliances
Experienced knowledge with:
Context, Load Balancing, Virtual server, pools, rules and traffic management.
_Additionally, Network RSA should have the ability to:_
Consolidate multiple routing/switching/firewall configurations into one device. For example,
Four production physical router configurations To one physical router configuration
Three firewalls including DMZ zones To one physical or multiple virtual firewalls
Consolidating configurations is the key. Usually, it is a 2:1 or 5:1 ratio between production gear and what is in the actual contract.
Able to architect a solution for DMZ simulation. For example,
Typically, an advertised Production Public address cannot be used during ATOT. A simulated DMZ environment solution will need to be implemented to justify recovery goals. This can be achieved by creating an SVI (DMZ) on a switch and designing NAT rules in a firewall to allow public networks to reach a DMZ server using an entirely new public address space.
Ability to architect separate solutions for various scenarios during ATOT or ATOD.
Ability to create step by step network procedures based upon solutions.
Ability to provide Best Practices around:
Load Balancing
Bachelor''s degree in Engineering, Computer Science, or related technology discipline preferred, but not required

Willing to travel 25-40% of the time

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
