This would include management of installing/upgrading/decommissioning of Network hardware (SDN boxes, Riverbeds etc.) and Connectivity circuits (MPLS/internet).
This is a highly interactive role which would need key collaboration with stakeholder management (including presentations with C-level management), crossteam collaboration and 15+ service providers. The person will work closely with Technical Service Vendor Managers and Technical Service Leads to make sure that the scope and direction of each project is on schedule, as well as other cross functional departments for support.
