Description

Over the past few years we’ve constructed a vast network comprised of thousands of servers spread around the globe with a constant hum of traffic running through them. Our platform handles hundreds of thousands of bids every second and our system is built to maintain maximum uptime. The Operations team at Index Exchange, has engineered a number of tools to help us monitor and watch this network but we need a set of human eyes on it every minute of the day.

  • Flexibility: As NOC monitoring expands to 24/7/365 coverage we need Engineers who can adapt to this schedule
  • Logical: Your role is to log activity, work logically to understand the severity of a given problem and then report that problem to the right person if you’re not able to fix it
