Job Description:



Department Information

Established in 1998 at Indiana University, the GlobalNOC's mission is to advance the future of research, education, and the public interest through the support and evolution of networks. With our staff of 120+, we provide comprehensive contracted network management services to over 20 large-scale networks. As part of Indiana University, we operate as a non-profit; we focus on developing great technical staff, and providing excellent service to our clients.

Why work here?

Make a difference.

Our networks are all higher education, research, and public service oriented, and we're enthusiastic about the missions of our clients. Each of us is curious and motivated to master the skills that will help our clients, our community, our world, and ourselves.

Grow your skills and career.

With the 20+ networks we operate and manage, and the size and diversity of our client networks, you won't be pigeon-holed doing just one thing. Taking time to investigate, read, or study new things isn't just ok, it's required and supported.

Enjoy the life-friendly moderate cost of living of the Midwest, or work remotely.

In Indiana, we have two locations. Do you like the intellectually stimulating environment of university town? Bloomington might be for you. Prefer to enjoy life in the big city? We have a location in downtown Indianapolis. We also support fully remote engineers under the right circumstances, and mixes of in-office and WFH. Applicants located in Alaska would be especially welcomed (fully remote).

Our people and attitude.

GlobalNOC is non-profit, and is committed to a culture of positive work/life balance, diversity, and open information sharing. We value an exploring mindset and seek ways to learn more and deepen our expertise, sharing with our clients and each other. We have frequent internal seminars, as well as funds to attend training, conferences, and certifications. And yes, people here really are super-friendly.

You'll earn 30 days of paid time off per year to start, with an increase after 5 years. That's on top of an additional 9 paid holidays each year.
