We're Apogee. Nice to meet you. At our core, we're an IT-services organization that happens to focus on higher education.

We work hard, celebrate success, and challenge everyone in our organization to be a problem solver. If you are as passionate as we are about the intersection of technology and education, join us today.

We're looking to hire a NOC Engineer to help expand our Network Services team. Apogee believes in promoting from within and others in this role have moved into senior-level network engineering positions in the department.

Here's the job:

  1. Troubleshoot and resolve simple to complex network outages (layers 1-3) and service interruptions
  2. Use established policies and procedures to provide timely and accurate ticket updates

  4. Utilize basic LAN configurations (Routers / Firewalls) and Microsoft operation systems

  • Technical Aptitude. Some projects we take on have subtle differences, and others present obstacles we haven't faced yet. You can apply your baseline knowledge and natural technical aptitude to help you with easy tasks and challenging issues.
  • #ONE_TEAM. There's a lot of room for individual success, but it all starts at the core, a strong team. You demonstrate open, positive communication, listen to others, and encourage group troubleshooting.
  • High-Quality Standards. This is a high-impact, highly visible position. You have internal and external clients depending on the quality of work you deliver (never mind the financial impact of low quality). You care about your work and your customers.
