Fast growing company has an immediate need for a Sr Network Engineer.  In this role, you will work on a small team of Network Engineers and have an excellent opportunity to learn new technologies and expand your skill set.  There will be some car travel (no more than 2-3 hours by car, and no more than 15% of the month) for project work at client sites. You must have excellent writing skills and be able to work off-hours if needed.

This is a fast growing company that hires very smart individuals.  They take care of their Engineers, and this is a great place to work.  They offer competitive base salaries, full benefits, 401K profit sharing, some telecommute and flex scheduling, etc.
