Infrastructure

Infrastructure involves building and maintaining all of the devices and applications that keep us connected. Careers in technology infrastructure require an understanding of networks, systems and hardware. This field also includes security and making sure systems are online and supported at all hours of the day (because no one likes your website when it's down). As remote work becomes more common, infrastructure careers are more critical to an organization's success than ever before.

What is Infrastructure?

Ever wonder how wifi works or why some internet connections are faster than others? Do you see the increasingly connected world as a puzzle to solve? A career in technology Infrastructure might be right for you. IT infrastructure components allow businesses, organizations and homes to function.

 

Infrastructure jobs are full of problem-solvers who can assist customers and solve complex behind-the-scenes issues. Infrastructure support is also used in “Internet of Things” objects — devices connected to a network, such as remote controllers, smart thermostats, wifi-enabled doorbell cameras and much more.

 

Both physical hardware and software networks are set up to work optimally by IT leaders and managers. All businesses and organizations can benefit from a robust, interconnected IT infrastructure.
