This media organisation, that takes live audio from major events (audio, podcasts, major sporting events etc) and turns it into an on-demand service, requires a Head of Network Infrastructure.

This job is going to start off hard, and will only get more challenging. You will not be 'getting a feel for things' in your first couple of weeks. No, you'll be straight in at the deep end doing what you love to do.

You, as the new Head of Network Infrastructure, will enter a role that is immensely varied. Initial tasks will include aiding in the scaling up of the service by 50% due to an immense increase in demand. This demand, unfortunately, has resulted in a couple of nasty outages recently, so you will be going in to ensure this never happens again.

The experience required is as follows -


  • Linux administration
  • Networking - VGP, OSPF, Juniper, JUNOS. Acatel based environment (floating IPS), Bash
  • Ansible (read playbooks, make sure documentations is legible moving forward)
  • Terraform
  • Datacentre experience


  • Jenkins
  • Python/PHP
  • Cisco
  • NPLS, to manage switching feeds

Experience with Docker + Kubernetes would also be a plus, as if you have this experience you would lead the transition to containerising everything.

You will also be mentoring two Junior Engineers, as well as being responsible for the architecture/solutions designs, then seeing these throughto implementation.

If you're able to go into a hectic network environment as a Lead Engineer, to get stuff under control, they you're the person for this role!
