As a Project Manager within the project delivery team you will be responsible for the delivery of assigned key customer facing projects to time, budget and the required quality through the management of a successful portfolio of project work crucial to the continual growth of the business.

About the Role

As a Senior Network Engineer, you will maintain, operate and support Glide Group’s various networks and teams; you will maintain complete technical documentation creating HLD and LLD for our platforms and services.

You will be expected to suggest improvements to network performance, capacity and scalability as well as mentor junior team members on technical issues.

Some flexibility is important as you will be part of an on-call rota once up to speed. In an ideal world, you would have knowledge of coding languages such as Python or Perl.

About You

We need you to have extensive experience in a telecommunication environment, familiarity with network operating systems, experience in communication protocols (mainly TCP/IP) and routing protocols (MPLS, RSVP, VLAN, BGP including route reflection).

You need to have the ability to work independently and be just as comfortable being part of the team, have experience with network diagnostic, monitoring and analysis tools as well as having HLD and LLD documentation experience.

About Us

We are specialists in delivering market-leading, super-fast and reliable Wi-Fi and technical solutions for students, residential developers, and businesses, the three sectors we know inside out. Glide is more than the sum of its parts. We are a big group with the energy and ingenuity of a small business.

Values

At Glide, brand values are not just words on a wall. They are at the heart of our culture and shape how we behave, how we recruit and how we support each other and our customers.

Each value is brought to life through our behaviours. Our behaviours make it clear how to speak to our colleagues and our customers, how we act towards each other and how we define being a ‘Glider’.

Stand Together

Like a family, we value togetherness, put the group before ourselves, welcome diversity and always work hard to make sure everyone feels like they belong.

Act Bravely

We dare to do things a little differently. We believe in each other and inspire the people around us to push themselves out of their comfort zones, to do things with courage and conviction, to grab life by the horns and to have total confidence in themselves.

Care Whole-heartedly

If we fall on customer experience, nothing else we do matters. That is because customer loyalty is hard won and easily lost. The difference boils down to caring about the things our customers care about, always taking the time to make life simpler for them and going out of our way to connect and give them more than they would expect.

Live Vibrantly

We are no ordinary company, and our culture reflects that: we believe that having fun, getting on with each other and not taking life too seriously is just as important as working hard.

Be Tenacious

It is about more than hard work and graft – we never rest on our laurels. We are an unstoppable team that know we can always do better and more than what we achieved last week, month or year.

Think Unconventionally

Staying open-minded, defying predictable ways of doing things, outsmarting the competition, and cracking on with enthusiasm and positivity is how we approach everything, every day.
