IT Infrastructure Network Architect
As part of IT Infrastructure Development and Architecture you will be a part of a department that is responsible for the IT infrastructure on a global scale. A subset of the IT Infrastructure is the network infrastructure, covering areas like LAN, WAN, WLAN, Load balancers & Firewalls.
Your responsibility as Network Architect will predominantly be in the area of Datacenter and Campus LAN and WAN where you will define and maintain network standards and concepts as well as implement these on a global scale.
Some degree of 3rd level support for the operational department must be expected.
Much of the actual hands-on implementations are performed by either other internal departments or external consultant and sourcing partners. It is therefore crucial that you are able to manage these deliverables as well as communicate with stakeholders on different levels.
MAN Diesel & Turbo currently has Cisco as network vendor, so experience and certifications within this portfolio is a prerequisite for applying to the position. However, you should be open to working with products from other vendors as it is the strategy within our company to use an open architecture approach for the next generation of network platforms.
You will play a central role in redefining this strategy, turning it into a design standard and implementing this.
You will become part of an international department of highly experienced & skilled infrastructure architects and specialists, located mainly in Europe. You will be working closely together with other infrastructure specialists as well as colleagues from the application areas within IT.
You will be the key responsible person for driving and developing the architecture within the areas of Datacenter, LAN and WAN. This requires you to create and maintain the design architecture standards for the global MAN Diesel & Turbo network and ensure new and existing implementations adhere to the standards within the MAN & VW Group.
Together with colleagues in the Infrastructure Development department and/or other parts of IT you will be building and implementing new solutions for MAN Diesel & Turbo and you must be able to manage technical project implementation with a well-documented handover to the operational department and outsourcing partners.
