2. Proven experience with troubleshooting network connectivity issues.
3. Familiarity with BGP, OSPF, and other routing protocols.

These are some of the tasks that the candidate will be expected to fulfill:

1. Provide tier 2 and tier 3 troubleshooting support for failed network connectivity and determine root cause, whether from a firewall access-list, network address translation, route, or other configuration issue.

Provide recommendations for fix actions and develop follow-on activities to reduce risk by documenting data flows, and implementing standardized rule sets for affected services.
2. Help internal customers design and architect complex firewall rule sets, based on repeatable usage patterns of commonly used software tools, to provide greater speed to service for onboarding new servers and other network devices.
3. Provide support for the development of other firewall rule requests, and identify gaps in compliance with PCI and other standards.
4. Perform firewall rule audits, working with application owners to identify when a rule can be locked down or removed.
5. Implement standards for network objects and perform other standardization activities on firewalls, improving efficiency while driving towards ease of management.
6. Create and update network diagrams, and other documentation.

These are the preferred skills and experience:
