  • Diagnose server or network alerts, events, or incidents
  • Write clear and concise customer and interdepartmental communications
  • Act as the first responder to all alerts and problem reports while managing communications between departments, handling crisis documentation, and disseminating it after the issue is resolved
  • Be on call from time to time since Infoblox is a 24x7x365 organization—shifts and work on holidays may be required

What you’ll bring

  • 1+ years of experience in monitoring/support role with knowledge of cloud-native SaaS products
  • Experience resolving client requests in a timely manner using strong troubleshooting skills
  • Dependability and strong teamwork and communication
  • Solid knowledge of TCP/IP and networking protocols

  • Understanding of one or more operating systems (Microsoft/Linux) is desirable
  • Working knowledge of L2, L3 devices
  • Knowledge of tools like Thousandeyes, NewRelic, and Sysdig and scripting skills are all a plus
  • Bachelor’s degree or relevant experience is required

What success looks like: 

After the first six months, you will…

  • Understand the current Infoblox SaaS infrastructure (cloud-native) and NOC monitors
  • Be aware of the monitoring tools and significance of each monitor
  • Be comfortable following the incident management process
  • Start leading incidents based on what you’ve learned and the processes that are in place

After about a year, you will…

  • Lead efforts to identify automation opportunities
  • Independently work on BloxOne cases
  • Be able to independently engage with Infoblox Engineering and other application SaaS teams for Incident Management
