Network Engineer


    SBS is one of the most unique and innovative media organisations in the world today. SBS is proud of both its traditional broadcasting on radio & television, and its increasingly popular online network including the site, as well as 'SBS On Demand'. It's a content platform that exists for all Australians to inspire, support and celebrate the diversity of our multicultural society.

    The SBS technical landscape is constantly evolving, and our industry-leading platforms need a hand to stay connected and ahead of the curve.

    This Network Engineer role is responsible for the implementation, development, documentation, testing, and maintenance of LAN and WAN networks, routers, switches and firewall solutions. Working independently, in a team, and with vendors; the role is expected to innovate and ensure quality is constantly improving, ensure the integrity of data transmission, implementation and support meet both industry best practice and SBS requirements.

    The successful candidate will possess knowledge and experience in the following:

    • Cisco Catalyst based Network Switches and routers
    • Cisco Wireless Access Points
    • Cisco Prime and Cisco DCNM management
    • Cisco Checkpoint, ASA 5000 series firewalls, ASR 1000 routers
    • BGP, RIP routing protocols
    • Multicasting
    • Familiarity with SDN & SDDC technologies and their applications
    • Experience with Nexus 9K and VXLAN
    • Experience in developing, maintaining and delivering to a project timeline or delivery schedule
    • Knowledge or experience of the Broadcast/Production sector

    Really, we're after someone with strong fundamentals. If you understand modern networking environments intimately, but don't necessarily have a strict vendor alignment (you've used Juniper rather than Cisco etc) then we would still like to discuss this opportunity.

    On offer is a very healthy remuneration package, agile and flexible work spaces and arrangements (stand-up desks, meeting pods, solo spaces dedicated to quiet reflection and work) and onsite health & well-being programmes. We want you to love your place of work, so not only are you part of an organisation focused on making a positive social difference, but there's also free onsite parking (subject to availability), onsite childcare facilities, free gym membership, and an active social club.

    SBS believe that professional growth is a fundamental necessity for people to be engaged and happy. We are heavily investing to continually improve our Learning & Development capabilities across the organisation, particularly developing leadership capabilities. We are dedicated to helping our people grow, not just our organisation.

    If the above sounds like your thing, we'd love to discuss your work and tell you more about our side of things too. Send through a resume and we can arrange a time to have a chat and see how things fare.

    At SBS we pride ourselves on harbouring a flexible and inclusive environment for everyone. To ensure this doesn't change, we recruit with this in mind.
