Senior Citrix Engineer


​Senior Virtualization Engineer to join a hard-working team that manages a very large corporate enterprise. Daily responsibilities include day-to-day provisioning, installation and configuration, operation, and maintenance of the virtual infrastructure. This is a large scale, fast paced, and cross-functional team environment. This is a senior role. It is not for the meek or the beginner.

The main platform in use is Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop. However, we need a candidate with experience supporting various virtualization technologies, including VMware and Cisco, which are also in the environment. The Senior Engineer will also need to be well versed in performance and capacity monitoring.

And the Virtualization Team does have to work with IT Support to manage issues and resolve outages within the timeframe of established Service Level Agreements. This is a 24 x 7 environment and On-Call rotation is part of the job.

You need at least five years' experience with Virtualization, and it should include mainly Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop administration, though VMware vSphere administration and Cisco UCS administration are also important. Your experience should be in a large enterprise environment. A Citrix Certified Professional - Virtualization (CCP-V) certification is a big advantage.
