• Experience configuring routers and switches in production environments
• Ability to document a complex process, split it logically it into subtasks, and turn it into requirements for developers to implement
• Experience testing network infrastructure (e.g. routers, switches) APIs in lab/POC environments, documenting results, and working with vendors to address deficiencies
• Experience automating network configuration deployment using modern scripting languages (e.g. JavaScript, Python)
• Aversion to doing anything manually more than once

Preferred Qualifications
• Experience with YANG modeling and NETCONF
• Experience with network automation tools/platforms (e.g. Cisco NSO, Ansible, NAPALM)
• Experience designing large networks (e.g. gathering business requirements, developing standards and best practices, conveying design intent to implementation and support teams)
• Experience designing network infrastructure deployment orchestration using inventory-backed processes, canonical design definitions, and no operator intervention in steady state
• Comfortable providing feature requests to vendors in a constructive and informative manner
