  • Strong understanding of Network Security and IPsec implemented across multiple networks 
  • Experience with optimizing media streaming over mixed wireless networks
  • Experience in troubleshooting and optimizing network connected devices running over WiFi meshed and carrier mobile network
  • Familiarity with RMA, spares, logistics or other repair workflows
  • Value Added Reseller (VAR) or OEM Partner support Ops/Program experience 
  • Experience working with Salesforce Service Cloud case management and Jira bug tracking
