Technical Operations Engineer

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 Technical Operations team ensures that our complex systems are running smoothly and are highly available. Expertise with Linux system administration and the command line is required. Familiarity with various storage solutions, cloud hosting providers, revision control software, networking and scripting in either Python or Bash 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 with a hacker mentality; 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 — our engineers must be able to triage complex problems, ensure system stability and constantly improve processes.
