We pride ourselves on delivering awesome technology solutions backed by legendary technical support, and this approach is working because we're growing!

The Role:

We are looking for an enthusiastic Network Engineers to join our operations and delivery team.

Your day-to-day can involve:

  • Meeting our clients to talk through and whiteboard the technical aspects of their projects
  • Turning those whiteboard drawings into solidified high-level designs
  • Network hardware and/or software specifications to turn those high-level designs into infrastructure
  • Building detailed-designs that clearly articulate how this infrastructure will be configured
  • Deploying infrastructure into client facilities / data centres
  • Providing escalation support to our clients in the event of any issues
  • Documenting and implementing changes to our client environments as needed
  • Being part of an on-call rotation, (approx 1 week in every two months) to operate an after-hours support service for our customers when required.

We run a lean team where your contributions are noticed and rewarded so you'll need to:

  • Develop and display outstanding troubleshooting and analytical skills
  • Have meticulous attention to detail
  • Be equally able to contribute in a team or to deliver solo
  • Seek out new technology, knowledge and skills and show a real desire to continuously innovate and improve
  • Identify repetitive and/or error-prone tasks that can be automated away to free up engineering time
  • Be available to be part of an on-call rotation, (approx 1 week in every two months) to operate an after-hours support service for our customers when required.


Ideally, you will have:

  • excellent communication skills and can correspond with our clients equally well on the phone, in person or via email
  • the ability to express complex ideas just as easily on a whiteboard as you would in a detailed design document
  • a drive to succeed and learn - tell us about your home lab, or how you dedicate time to improving your technical understanding
  • excellent time-management skills - as an engineer with us, you may be required to balance your time across multiple projects with different clients
  • the ability to work well in a small team - we want our engineering team members to feed off each other’s enthusiasm and grow
  • a drivers license and own transport - travel to customer locations may be required at times
  • at least 3+ years experience in the networking industry in a systems integrator or professional services role, or plenty of hands-on exposure elsewhere.

We also want to hear about any experience, expertise or general interest you have in the following areas:

  • Junos and all things Juniper (ideally you’ll be JNCIP certified or working towards it)
  • Network Security (IPS, SIEM, DDoS or WAF)
  • Cloud Infrastructure connectivity - specifically Azure and AWS
  • Network Monitoring and diagnostics
  • Optical Networking/WDM
  • Wireless LAN (Aruba, Clearpass exposure)
  • any scripting languages (eg: Python, Ruby or Perl) that you are familiar with

The successful candidate will be self-motivated and thrive on interacting with our vibrant client base to contribute to the overall success of Over the Wire group.  

In return, we will provide a fun, energetic work environment with plenty of interesting problems to solve and customers to delight. We have a flexible, diverse and inclusive work environment, and recognise that the modern world is not 9-5.
