Storage Engineer

The Citi Architecture and Technology Engineering group comprises a few hundred leading technology subject-matter experts who assess the marketplace, select technologies for global use and adoption with Citi and deliver these technologies to the corporation in a certified, standardized, repeatable and operationally-ready form.  The group is truly global in nature, spread across NA, EMEA and Asia-Pacific and provides solutions to the whole of Citi.  The Storage Engineering team within CATE is responsible for the engineering lifecycle for all centralized/shared storage technologies including SAN arrays, fabrics, NAS, Backup and archival.

This role sits within the SAN engineering group with Storage Engineering and will take responsibility for a number of core technologies within Citi's global SAN environment which include EMC VMAX and VNX, HDS VSP and IBM XIV technologies and Cisco and Brocade fibre-channel switching platforms.  Working as part of a truly global team across Singapore, London, New Jersey and Dallas, the role will be responsible for the full engineering lifecycle for various SAN technologies including product/technology identification, evaluation and recommendation/selection, comprehensive qualification and certification of selected technologies, involvement in solution design consuming these technologies and ongoing escalation support for the technologies once deployed within Citi's global data center environments.

The role will be responsible for delivery of selected technologies and successful adoption across Citi's global data center footprint with minimal disruption.  Drivers for technology selection include cost optimization, business capability enablement, operational simplification and automation and resilience/availability improvements.  It presents a fantastic opportunity to significantly influence the thinking, strategy, product selection and execution of SAN technology across Citi at a very exciting time given the emergence of technologies like all-Flash arrays, automated storage tiering, the need for increasingly highly available SAN platforms and significant change to the SAN fabric.

 The successful candidate is likely to be educated to undergraduate level or above in a technical or scientific discipline.  They will have extensive experience working at a very detailed and hands-on level with SAN technologies from two or more of the following vendors: EMC, HDS, IBM, Cisco and Brocade.  They will ideally have spent a number of years working in a SAN/Storage Operations role in a major multi-national corporation or entity and have a strong understanding of operational needs and pressures whilst being keen to take the next step in their career to move away from this into a more engineering-driven role.

Aside from the essential technical skills and experience above, they will possess strong communications skills and particularly excellent spoken and written English since this is the primary language of the global team.  Given the scale and truly global nature of Citi, the ability to write in a clear, logical and compelling manner is particularly important.  The individual will need to be comfortable working both as part of a team and individually on specific projects, able to collaborate easily across teams and able to nurture partnerships and seek mutual benefit.  Whilst travel is not a significant aspect of the role, it will occasionally be necessary and the ability to work collaboratively with a global team across ASPAC, EMEA and NA is essential, requiring flexibility on working hours.  They must possess strong analytical skills and be able to get to very detailed levels of understanding in new technology areas rapidly and efficiently.
