Raytheon wants to send CCIEs to the South Pole

If the snow and ice storms hitting some parts of the country don't faze you, how about working in the snow - in the Antarctic. According to a job ad sent in by a longtime reader, Raytheon wants to send network engineers to the South Pole to work on the National Science Foundation's United States Antarctic Program. The government contractor is looking for Cisco-certified professionals, including CCIEs, CCNPs, CCDAs, and CCDPs with experience of SONET, ISDN and Frame Relay, to work with the Raytheon Polar Services Company. Raytheon provides services including science, operations, logistics and IT to three Antarctic locations.

According to the ad on Dice.com, the contract position offers a compensation package that includes travel to and from the ice, and room and board.
