  • Vision and Strategic Network Planning. The Manager must have the ability to articulate, document, plan and implement a vision that aligns with the strategic goals of the department and the College.
  • Project Management and Advanced Technical Implementation. Several major projects are underway including the replacement of the College’s fiber optic infrastructure, increased wireless coverage campus-wide and comprehensive documentation. The manager must be an engineer with a talent for leading projects through collaborative planning processes, documentation, and technical implementation.
  • Information Security. Haverford’s technology environment must be secure. The Manager must bring a clear understanding of the information security landscape, from applicable law to best practices and champion the principles and practices necessary to maintain a secure technology environment.



Success in this role will require a combination of:

· A record of professional success in network engineering, information security, project management and leadership.

· Expert level proficiency across the continuum of networking technologies including copper- and fiber-optic network infrastructure; switching, routing and monitoring protocols, principles and equipment; firewalls and other network security devices; DNS and DHCP; wireless network technology; VPN services; VoIP, network performance metrics tracking.

· Strong applied understanding of information security principles, applicable law, and best practices.

· Expert level proficiency with Linux or Unix operating systems and understanding of network configuration for Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS devices.

· Excellent project leadership skills with a track record of leading major network projects, including planning, documentation and implementation.

· Specific experience with Alcatel-Lucent, Juniper Networks, Aruba Networks, and Fortinet products is preferred.


The successful candidate will bring a combination of a bachelor’s degree in a technical field and experience in the requirements of this position through full-time employment experience.


The successful candidate must also have excellent organizational, interpersonal, reading, writing and spoken English skills and a clear sensitivity of, and respect for, the uniqueness of a higher education environment.


Because this position may need to unpack, assemble and connect network and computer hardware, candidates must be able to lift 50lbs and work in spaces where networking equipment and servers are typically found.
