Senior Network Consultant

Shandam Consulting Inc. - Sacramento, CA


Shandam Consulting, a Sacramento network consulting firm established in 2001, is seeking a senior-level system engineer with deep experience in Enterprise IT technologies, architectures and best practices.

As a trusted advisor, you will be working with clients to help them gather technology requirements, identify platforms, generate designs, develop bill of materials, create and manage project plans, configure a wide array of networking equipment, and then implement the equipment in a manner that does not adversely impact client business operations. This will require knowledge of the change management process, developing test and acceptance plans, and documenting all your work. This role requires working with a broad spectrum of roles, from help desk staff to CIO’s. As such, you may be called on to develop and deliver presentations and have the ability to work with both technical and non-technical staff. Strong interpersonal, organizational and communications skills are mandatory. The majority of the work is often done in conjunction with our client’s IT staff, so mentoring is a large part of what we do.

Our consultants are exposed to a broad set of technologies, designs and platforms and will often lead more technology projects in a single year than a traditional in-house IT person would in their entire career.

The Shandam culture encourages team members to collaborate in a mutually supportive environment to find the best solutions for our clients. The entire team is a resource for one another, which allows individual consultants to tap into decades of collective team experience.
