Job description:
Sr. Storage Engineer
Duration: 6 month Contract to Hire
Location: Lansing, MI.
Must be US Citizen, Green Card Holder (no sponsorship is available)

The Client is moving toward an infrastructure as code environment. It does not matter which programming language the candidate has experience with as long as the code is written correctly, works properly, and is automated (can run on its own without the code writer intervening to move the process along).

What matter is the competence and comfort level of writing scripts to solve problems. We want someone who can and is willing to write scripts.

The interviewers will ask the candidate to talk them through an automation they have written. If you want to send this in a brief description with the resume to help us vet the candidate, have them provide a description of what the problem was and how they solved it through code.

The Sr. Storage Engineer designs, monitors and configures the enterprise storage area network (SAN) infrastructure to ensure optimal system storage availability and performance. The Sr. Engineer will provide expert input into the estimation, design and implementation of complex projects; ensuring data integrity processes are maintained and system backups/recovery operations are successfully executed. The Sr. Engineer understands the impact of the storage technology on other technologies and utilizes that knowledge to represent JTS with both internal and external customers.
