If you are passionate about gaining true networking experience, working closely with key Juniper Systems Engineers, this is your chance!

At Juniper Networks, our goal is to solve the unsolvable by challenging conventions to define what’s possible, not simply what’s next. Do you want to connect the world’s leading businesses such as telecoms, stock exchanges, commercial, and government agencies? Do you want to pursue bold aspirations? Do you want to make a difference to the way people work, play and live their lives? If yes, we want to talk to you and, if you want to know more, keep reading.


The Programme

Systems Engineers are the technical authorities who collaborate with our customers and partners to understand their critical business issues as well as their technical requirements, and apply Juniper technology in order to find long‐term sustainable solutions. They evaluate different scenarios and whether it can meet cost and performance goals on schedule. You will become the technical lead who advises the best way to deploy technology in their specific case.

If you love real-world application of knowledge, Systems Engineering is a great place to be.

The programme is designed to rapidly onboard new engineers through formal and informal training, team assignments and individual project work to support Juniper System engineering teams. During the rotations you will deepen your Juniper technology knowledge via hands‐on activities and gain customer interaction experience in a very diverse team. The learning curve is very steep, and Juniper delivers a wide array of situations and customer scenarios to help you grow in any technology or solution area. You will have the chance to define solutions that make a meaningful difference to our customers.
