Why join

The Emerging Technologies and Incubation (ETI) Group has the charter to establish and advance the next Bold Bets and Moonshots for Cisco.

We run fast, we run ahead, and we run ambitious!

One of the Bold Bets we are making is to help our customers deliver great application experiences through modern, full-stack observability and analytics for enterprise architectures.


What you will do

As part of that mission, this role would be to define and drive the Observability and AI/ML-Ops technology strategy and priorities across Cisco, with a holistic lens for the business and technology portfolio. This would include -

  • Provide leading technical and strategic insight across e2e monitoring, analytics and observability problem-statements like, Show me if there is a problem I care about, Show me where and why this went wrong, Can I remediate this safely and autonomously
  • Define and deliver on e2e data platform architectures that can provide context to application experiences across heterogeneous hardware systems, software stacks, hybrid cloud infrastructures, API performance, availability and security
  • Establish what SLOs are most important for large-scale production environments and Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) for performance, safety, availability, and autonomous operations, and drive products to deliver on those SLOs
  • Define and deliver formal models, knowledge graphs and AI/ML pipelines that will assist in declaratively evolving system (apps and infra) state

As the CTO for Observability - Data Platform and Insights, you will -

  • Drive the execution for both organic and inorganic initiatives to deliver your strategy
  • Work with the various Business Units within Cisco that help produce telemetry and insights across different layers of the technology stack, inclusive of Applications, Cloud Services, Infrastructure, Network and Security
  • Work with Ciscos strategy office, customer experience and business operations teams to productize your vision
  • Drive thought leadership in the observability, analytics and insights market by working with Cisco Research and producing publications in journals and academic conferences
  • Work with open source projects and forums to drive adoption and raise the bar for observability software, AI/ML models and architectures

Who you are

  • Masters or higher in Computer Science or a related technical field
  • Have run modern, large-scale production environments (SRE) before, or have led / delivered monitoring and analytics products for production environments or as a product for enterprise customers
  • Exceptional design knowledge for large-scale distributed systems, modern high-performance databases and analytics, and/or streaming telemetry
  • Operational knowledge of AI/ML algorithms as it pertains to systems and streaming telemetry
  • Have led and supported technical M&A diligence
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills, backed by solid technical writing abilities and communication skills

Why Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.


We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security 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, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication 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!
