James Dean

Vice President of Network Engineering

Hi, nice to meet you I’m James Dean, a few fun facts about me…

  • I had a TV appearance on Alan Carr back in 2015.
  • ChatGPT is my new best friend.
  • I ran the London Marathon in 2018.

Here at Hamilton Barnes, I am the VP of Network Engineering. After close to 9 years supporting ISPs in the UK, and building our team of recruiters across Europe, I decided it was time for a new adventure. I now support businesses on the East Coast, predominantly in the DMV area, in finding the very best talent for their Network Engineering teams.

Our technology focus is:

  • Networking (LAN & WAN): Cisco, HP, Juniper, Arista, Alcatel, Extreme
  • Software Defined Networking: Cisco ACI, VMware NSX, Juniper Contrail
  • Network Automation: Python, Ansible, Terraform
  • Network Security: Cisco, Checkpoint, Juniper, Fortinet, Palo Alto, F5
  • Unified Communications: Cisco, Avaya, Mitel, Aastra
  • Wireless LAN: Cisco, HP/Aruba, Ruckus, Aerohive

A few of the team's success stories so far…

  • Grew out and placed 72% of the Network Engineering team for a global technology start-up, which now has a billion-dollar revenue stream.
  • Supported the growth of a global MSP, across 14 placements within a 5-month period. This was focused across their R&S, Security, Wireless and Collaboration practice.
  • We were brought on board by a leading multinational investment bank to assist with their global technology transformation. This involved placements across their R&S, Security, Collaboration and Data Centre practice globally, ranging from support to VP level hires across an 8 month period.
