Ideally, we are looking for someone with experience in the following areas:
  • Knowledge with Switch and Route administration - configuring, troubleshooting, managing Cisco networking equipment

  • Basic understanding of Teams Telephony and Collaboration systems – creating and managing Auto Attendants, Call Queues, Resource Accounts as well as provisioning end users and MS Teams certified devices.
  • Solid understanding, and ability to communicate, the fundamentals from their formal education 
  • Demonstrate they have a drive to continuously learn and improve their knowledge and ability
Preferred certifications – We will consider candidates that are actively working towards any of these as well.
  • Cisco CCNA/CCNP
  • Cisco CCDA/CCDP
  • Microsoft Certified: Azure Network Engineer Associate
  • CompTIA Network+
Things that will not get a candidate an interview (these are positives, but will not get an interview unless we see other attributes from above):
  • MS O365
  • Azure AD
  • Windows Server Administration
