Job Description :
Job title: Network Engineer (Palo Alto and Juniper SRX product)

Location: Atlanta, GA

Duration: Full time

Job details:

Four or more years on Juniper, Palo Alto and Cisco Nexus enterprise datacentre environments, performing O&M or E&I work. Prefer expert level experience, if available.
Proven experience with troubleshooting network connectivity issues.
Familiarity with BGP, OSPF, and other routing protocols.
Ability to perform log analysis with Splunk or other tools, towards the goal of isolating traffic passing or not passing through a firewall, and then formulating specific rule-bases to either efficiently allow or block such traffic.

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

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. Be able to troubleshoot routers, switches, and other network devices end-to-end in coordination with these activities. 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.
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.
Provide support for the development of other firewall rule requests, and identify gaps in compliance with PCI and other standards.
Perform firewall rule audits, working with application owners to identify when a rule can be locked down or removed.
Implement standards for network objects and perform other standardization activities on firewalls, improving efficiency while driving towards ease of management.
Create and update network diagrams, and other documentation.
