Developer Advocate (Technical Evangelist) - Datacenter Compute

Cisco Systems Inc.
San Jose, CA 95113

# What You'll Do

We are looking for a senior developer advocate who will focus on on-prem cloud and automation, including UCS and cloud platforms such as kubernetes.

You will actively engage internally and externally to help define the future of datacenter programmability and automation. You will encourage and enable the community of passionate developers and technologists who use Cisco programmable platforms. You will be the "voice of the developer" within Cisco. Share feedback from the developer community with Cisco platform teams to help build a great developer experience. You will present technical talks at conferences, meetups, customer workshops and virtual events. You will create sample code, use cases, and presentations to drive Cisco API and platform adoption.

# Who you'll work with

Cisco DevNet (developer.cisco.com) supports a community of developers and engineers who are defining how to extend DevOps to infrastructure engineering, and how to build applications using network insights. We provide developer relations for all of Cisco's platforms. We combine technical skills with people skills to support both application developers and infrastructure developers. We provide community outreach, educational events, API documentation, and resources such as sandbox environments to try out Cisco products.

We code in python (mostly), and we learn and experiment with new technologies to find new ways to build and manage secure, efficient, and scalable infrastructure. We are seeking a technical lead who will be an innovator in this space, and who will inspire, enable and build a developer community around data center compute, on-prem cloud platforms, and orchestration.

# Who you are

You are a network or compute engineer who wants to explore how APIs, code, and automation can make the data center more efficient and scalable. You love to learn new technologies, to code and to tinker. You excel at explaining new concepts in simple terms that communicate both technical and business value propositions. You are active in the digital community and in your local tech community. You think hard about hard problems and understand the challenges that infrastructure automation engineers are trying to solve.

# Experience we'd strongly prefer you to have:

  • Hands-on expertise with technologies including UCS, Intersight, Github, CI/CD tools, python, Ansible, Puppet, Terraform, k8s
  • Experience in working across organizational boundaries to achieve success.
  • Demonstrated success with cultivating developer communities
  • Software development experience and familiarity with the use of APIs and SDKs.
  • The ability, drive, focus and independence to work in a remote setting without direct oversight

# Experience that would be excellent to have:

  • Cisco DevNet Associate, Cisco DevNet Professional and/or Cisco Certified DevNet Specialist
  • Experience writing clear, and concise developer documentation and tutorials
  • Excellent time management skills for handling multiple projects and goals
  • Excellent written and verbal 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!
