Senior Network Engineer, Information Systems Technology - Georgetown University Law Center

Tradition. Innovation. A superb faculty, hundreds of course offerings — and all of this just steps away from the Capitol and Supreme Court.  Georgetown Law is an exceptional institution in an enviable location.  Students come here from all over the world to study international or tax law, environmental or health care law (just a few of our specialties). They come here for our top-ranked clinics. Most of all, they come because this is the place where theory and practice meet. At Georgetown, students learn the law in the place where laws are made.

The Senior Network Engineer provides technical support for Georgetown Law's classroom networking systems, data, voice and cable television network hardware and software, to include Cisco Unified Communications Manager System (all of its nodes and endpoints), and the network switches and VLAN network.  Reporting to the Director of Technology Operations, the Senior Network Engineer has duties that include but are not limited to:

  • Monitors and maintains the Georgetown Law's network systems to assure the continuous and reliable data and voice network connectivity - for example, connectivity to the Main Campus, Internet, Remote Access, and core network electronics.
