  • Overview

    We make it strangely simple for businesses to talk to clients, customers and colleagues, wherever they are. This is global communication redefined, free from the tyranny of PSTN lines.

    Voxbone is the best-kept secret in cloud communications, but we're ready for our close up! That's where you come in. As we spread the word and bring more customers aboard, we need a Junior Switching & Network Engineer to join our Infrastructure team in Austin, Texas, or in Simi Valley, California.

    In essence, the Junior Switching & Network Engineer is an escalation point for the NOC for all matters related to voice routing, switching and IP networks. You handle network changes, customers interconnections and take part in onsite operations during data canter maintenances.
