What You'll Do

Cisco is looking for a talented data engineer to join our Threat Response software development team. We use Clojure to mesh large volumes of high dimensional network, host and service information with taxonomic information about malicious software. Much of our work involves understanding and reasoning about this data, which describes the behavior of adversarial actors in complex systems. We use this data to help our customers understand the nature of the threat they face, and to determine the best course of action.

Consequently, there is a lot of room to explore and apply cutting edge software development skills in a practical, useful, fascinating, expansive, and evolving problem domain. The overarching goal is to provide tools that benefit the security of our customers infrastructure.

Who Youll Work With

Our Threat Response team is distributed across North America and Europe. We work mostly from home and occasionally come in to the office, if necessary. We prize verbal and written communication skills, sociability, and pride in carrying out duties with speed and precision.  Our developers make a major global impact.

We draw on the best of agile themes and techniques from the past 30 years: continuous integration and deployment, testing, flexible collaboration with globally distributed team members via chat and video, and gradual, deliberate optimization of process in the name of keeping projects and releases flowing smoothly. We provide an excellent, continuously evolving product to our customers. We are surrounded by talented QA, UX, support, documentation writers, and management. We hold ourselves to high standards. 

If you enjoy working with a group of creative, talented and enthusiastic individuals on problems at the intersection of data design, transparency and interaction, then this is place for you.

Why Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Heres how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security company. A blockchain company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do you cant put us in a box!

But Digital Transformation is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
