The NFL Network is a new network administration job that was created on Thursday, Jan. 6, according to a memo posted on the company’s website.
The job description is similar to those for network administrator positions at Fox Sports, ESPN, and Fox Sports 2.
The position requires that a person be a network engineer, a network administrator, and/or a technical support specialist.
“The Network Engineering position will provide technical support for our network, including the provision of networking, routing, and other network services,” the company wrote.
“In this role, the Network Engineering will help us address issues that may affect our network or network performance, and will help resolve issues that arise during testing, maintenance, or other operations.”
The Network Engineering also has responsibility for ensuring that network management processes are in place to support our network operations.
“We appreciate the role that the Network Engineer will play as we implement our new Network Administration system, and look forward to their continued contribution to our network,” the NFL said in the statement.
The new Network Engineering role does not entail a pay raise, according.
The company said the position will be offered through a one-year position.
It will be a full-time position, and the position is not open to candidates with previous network administration experience.
“As Network Engineers, we have a responsibility to our customers, our business, and our employees to keep them informed and engaged on important issues that affect our customers and their teams,” the statement said.
“Our Network Engineering team is responsible for the day-to-day operations of our network.
They will be required to maintain a continuous, high-level of technical proficiency, and to maintain and enhance the effectiveness of our existing network management system.”
The network engineering role at the NFL Network will be available in early 2018, the company said.
The network is owned by ESPN and Fox, and ESPN also has a role in the league’s coverage.
ESPN has had a network of its own since 2002.
The NFL has a presence at ESPN’s new studio in Orlando, Fla., and the network has been airing games there since 2012.
The ESPN-owned network has also been hosting regular games on ESPN2.
