Looking for 2 positions.
The first one will be more focused on field engineering side where individual will be expected to go on site and check things like signal strength or validate that the installs were done correctly.
Roughly 90% of this person’s job will be on site validating the installations and providing support for installation activities.
The second position will be more of a desk job where the person will be working with Spreadsheets and VISIO.
The architects on the project will be generating the designs.
This person will look at those designs and take the 100 or so identified access points put them on a spreadsheet and assign where they will go in the installation diagram so that installers know what is needed of them.
IN a sense it is transferring high level design to a template that installers can use.
Both positions can support and back each other up in need.
This is a 100% ARBUA install.
If they have CISCO, they can learn it, but it is HIGHLY preferred they come with the ARUBA experience.
Note, these roles are a bit more junior than in the past, roughly looking at 3 to 5 years’ experience.
We will be pretty strict about this.
We will consider non local people and hire via blue jeans, but would prefer local or onsite interviews.
However, the work itself NEEDS to be onsite.
There will only be one req open so please specify if you are submitting them for the ONSITE or DESK job or both.
Also indicate if they are not local but have the means of relocating.
