Berkeley Lab's Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), the fastest science network in the world, is seeking a hands-on manager to lead ESnet's Network Operations Center (NOC). This position serves as a key member of ESnet's leadership team and is responsible for the 24/7/365 network operations and monitoring of the ESnet network, peering, and connections to critical Department of Energy (DOE) sites. Outstanding communication skills are essential, as is the ability to collaborate closely with ESnet's network engineering, infrastructure, and software teams to deliver the processes and tools to maintain a highly reliable and available network infrastructure to support science network and computing requirements.
ESnet provides innovative networking and collaborative services to national research laboratories and other Department of Energy sites, connecting them to research and education networks worldwide, as well as the greater Internet. ESnet is widely-regarded as a technical pioneer, and is currently the fastest science network in the world. Our mission is to accelerate science by delivering unparalleled networking capabilities, tools, and innovations. As an organization, we are small enough to be agile, but large enough to offer rewarding challenges on a global scale.
What You Will Do:
Oversee and direct all aspects of the 24/7/365 mission critical Network Operations Center including, planning, designing, implementing, deploying, supporting and maintaining functions required for monitoring the state of the ESnet network.
Serve as a member of ESnet's leadership team in developing and implementing organization-wide vision, strategies, plans, and programs.
Develop and manage ESnet's NOC Group priorities, in alignment with ESnet's strategic objectives and tactical plans including scoping, prioritizing, and project-managing technical projects.
Oversee the management of service level agreements (SLAs) with vendors and service providers. Manage and oversee the maintenance of all assets of the network.
Develop policies and procedures for all Network Operations Center environments.
Provide leadership, line management supervision, and mentorship of the NOC Group.
Participate in ESnet outreach activities through presentations, and direct contacts with staff in peer and customer organizations.
Maintain a work environment that embraces diversity, fosters creativity and innovation, and ensures that DOE and Laboratory rules and policies are observed.
Some travel (possibly including international destinations) will be required.
What is Required:
Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or a related field, or equivalent experience.
1 to 3 years of experience in a managerial/leadership role within a network engineering organization. This includes experience providing supervision, guidance, and mentoring network engineers.
Minimum of 8 years of IP networking experience, in a WAN (preferred) or LAN environment.
Experience developing processes and procedures that standardize and simplify Network Operations activities.
Demonstrated knowledge of network and host monitoring principles, ability to translate principles to specific monitoring applications/frameworks, and experience defining alerting and monitoring thresholds.
Ability to define requirements for new tools or required automation needed to manage day to day operations of the network efficiently and effectively.
Strong communication skills to work with both internal teams and external end users (written, oral, documentation creation, etc.)
Project Management experience, specifically demonstrated expertise in developing technical project scope, schedule, and budget planning and execution.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled, however for full consideration, please apply by close of business on June 3, 2020.
This is a full-time career appointment, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
