System Administrator

Who We Are

Deepfield is a Nokia-owned company that builds the analytic and security solutions that monitor and defend Internet backbone networks on a global scale. We produce cutting-edge research at the intersection of data science, visualization, and network analytics. We create, deploy, and maintain the largest global network analytics platform.

Come join us and help advance state-of-the-art network intelligence.

What We Do

Our customers are the internet - from content providers to global network operators. There's no shortage of data in these environments; the challenge is to turn that data into actionable information for everything from strategic business decisions to automated network operation. The biggest players in the industry are turning to Deepfield for answers.

The IT Manager role ensures that our complex systems are running smoothly and are highly available. Experience with Linux, Mac, and Windows system administration is required. Familiarity with various storage solutions, cloud hosting providers, revision control software, and networking is desired. Problem solving and experience investigating complex issues are a plus. A sense of ownership and responsibility is absolutely essential for success.

Our ideal candidate is an experienced systems administrator that can hit the ground running; someone who thrives in a complex, fast-moving environment. This isn't an upgrade to the latest version of the software once-a-year type of gig — you must be able to triage complex problems, ensure system stability and constantly improve processes.
