Our vision of the Network Operations group, is to gather sharp engineers that are passionate about the field of networking and surround them with like-minded individuals, constantly striving to innovate the operation and architecture of our large global network. On a typical day, you can be presented with enterprise level security issues one minute, troubleshooting market data multicast routing the next minute, all while working on a wireless problem on one of our trading floors.
We are constantly looking for engineers that aren't afraid to contribute a fresh perspective, so if you love working in a dynamic high paced environment with no silos, we look forward to hearing from you.
