Job Description: The candidate will support a network environment that is extended via metro and fiber optic lines linking our primary sites, with extensive networks fanning out from the Minnetonka, Chicago, New York, Germany, London, and Asia locations, including: 350+ customer connections using direct links, extranet providers, and VPN connectivity from various North America locations to provide redundant customer connectivity into order routing and market data platforms. STI-managed direct connectivity and collocation presents at various exchanges and market data vendor sites.
Interconnects to local vendor-managed equipment for connectivity to exchanges and market data. Dedicated WAN lines connecting our various facilities in Europe and Asia. A mesh of Cisco 6500s, ASR routers, and Nexus switch platforms used in supporting and providing low latency infrastructure environments to multiple electronic trading platforms.
The successful candidate will be well-versed in networking technology and will be either: an expert in either building and maintaining a world-class multiprotocol BGP/MPLS infrastructure to provide seamless failover and continuous connectivity between sites, accommodating the complex routing needs of the various sites; or a BGP and multicast routing expert, familiar with implementing high-availability layer-2 and layer-3 solutions in a high-volume high-risk trading environment where failure is not an option.
This candidate will be working in a large dynamic environment; as such, this is very much a hands-on.
