As a network and security engineer, I am sharing my time between network operations and engineering projects. Network operations are the daily activities performed to monitor and manage the CSCS high-speed datacentre network and to analyse and respond to alerts on security, availability or performance issues on the network. Network engineering includes medium- to long-term projects related to the network expansion and evolution, hardware, software or technology assessment and testing, implementation of new clusters, and much more.
Working at CSCS means to me
To be part of an organization that aims to support research and science at a national and inter-national level is very important to me.
What I like most about my work
Working at the cutting edge of information technology gives great satisfaction.The conviviality and dynamism of working in a human-sized structure like CSCS, where everyone takes responsibility and where trust is essential, is also very pleasant.
What challenges me at my work
Constantly learning to keep up with the rapid development of technology is an important but exciting challenge. Constant learning is the key in the IT field, and network engineers are life-long learners.
