This is not your typical Network/Systems Engineering job – we need an engineer/developer: must love technology, system automation, and designing resilient systems which support business operations!

At Arden, we are continually seeking new and innovative methods to enhance the resiliency, flexibility, and capacity of our IT systems. By striving for downtime figures that asymptotically approach zero, we ensure that our product development, engineering, supply chain, and manufacturing teams succeed and maintain our competitive edge.

You will be part of a team that is passionate about technology and takes pride in building and maintaining the platforms on which our business relies. Our team is responsible for both the design and implementation of network and system architectures and their ongoing operational health – this provides us with a crucial view into how our work impacts all aspects of the company.

So, if you have a strong technical background and are interested in applying your knowledge to computer networks and the systems that use them, we would love to talk to you! Please note that we are only looking for candidates interested in the “long haul”. We are not looking for temps or consultants. We want honest to goodness, real-deal engineers who want to expand their knowledge-base, be part of a team, and do challenging real work.
