About IP Fabric

Named Gartner Cool Vendor in Network Automation for 2022, IP Fabric is an emerging technology capturing the minds of critical network infrastructure engineers across Europe and the US by enumerating and modelling the behavior of their entire global networks. We have grown revenue exponentially for four years in a row, now spanning from the US to Prague, The Czech Republic and beyond.

IP Fabric's company vision is to define and lead the technology space of Network Assurance. To realize this vision, we are looking for the sharpest business minds to join us and grow as part of our distributed team.

Position Overview

IP Fabric excels in combining and bringing together two worlds, experienced network engineers and software developers. Network engineers build a bridge between networks & their protocols and our vendor-independent network model which is a foundation for all IP Fabric operations.

We are looking for a Network Automation Engineering Team Lead with developer background who will lead and manage the team. You will also closely cooperate with other teams from the Engineering department.

Team has networking expertise, but a large part of their job is development, where they transform data collected from the network to vendor and protocol agnostic model. We need team lead who will help them to uplift their programming skills and will bring developer experience into the team. We do not expect network engineer skills, but well-versed software engineer. You will also help backend teams with system architecture. Engineering is also in the process of transformation from waterfall development to agile and fostering devOps culture, so we expect you to live these principles.
