IoT Technical Evangelist

Cisco Systems Inc.
San Jose, CA 95113

What We Do

We are looking for a developer advocate with a passion for the Internet of Things to join our Developer Advocacy team. IoT is growing rapidly around the globe, and this is opening new approaches for how devices, compute, cloud, the network, and applications work together. Cisco DevNet (developer.cisco.com) is building a community of developers and engineers who are defining how to extend DevOps to the network, and how to build applications using network data.

We code in python (mostly), and we work with technologies like container networking, edge compute, automation, and orchestration to find new ways to build and manage secure, efficient and scalable infrastructure. We are seeking a Developer Advocate who will be a technical thought leader in this space, and who will inspire, enable and build a developer community around Cisco IoT platforms including Cisco Kinetic, Iox, Industrial and Embedded devices, and Field Network Director.

Who you'll work with

The team you will work with is Cisco DevNet, which provides developer relations for all of Cisco's developer offerings. DevNet covers information for APIs, DevOps, applications, automation, and infrastructure management. We combine technical skills with people skills to support both application developers and infrastructure developers in many ways. We provide community outreach, educational events, technical documentation, and tools such as sandbox environments to try out Cisco products. We have developer advocates across the globe, and we run our own platforms and keep the developer sandboxes ready for developers to practice their skills. You will also work closely with Cisco product teams in the IoT, Data Center, and Cloud groups to help build a great developer experience for Cisco platforms.

Who you are

You are an engineer with a passion for technology who wants to explore how APIs, code, and automation can make infrastructure more efficient and scalable. You love to learn new technologies, to code, to tinker, and are a life long learner of technologies. You excel at explaining new concepts in simple terms that communicate both technical and business value propositions. You want to help shape the future of IoT and automation. You are active in the IoT digital community and in your local tech community. You think hard about hard problems and understand the challenges that IoT developers are trying to solve. If you love the combination of hardware and software, and you are interested in APIs, code, and the Internet of Things, we want you!

What you'll do

In this position, you will:

  • Actively engage internally and externally to help define the future of network programmability and automation
  • Learn and experiment with new technologies
  • Build a community of developers and engineers who use Cisco IoT platforms.
  • Be the "voice of the developer" within Cisco. Provide feedback from the developer community to Cisco platform teams to help build great developer experience.
  • Engage with related open source communities
  • Present technical talks at conferences, meetups, customer workshops and virtual events
  • Create sample code, use cases, and presentations to drive Cisco API and platform adoption for Cisco IoT platforms.
  • Communicate a compelling and convincing case for Cisco technologies vs. the competition
  • Provide contributions to outbound marketing and communications (blogging, twitter, 3rd party event presentations)
  • Travel to support local events around the world

Minimum Qualifications

  • Demonstrated success with cultivating developer communities

  • Experience coding in Python.
  • Candidates should have expertise in IoT technologies.
  • The position also requires a strong understanding of competitive technology
  • Strong understanding of fundamental changes to the software and technology business driven by DevOps and the move to cloud computing and APIs, and microservices is critical.

Desired Skills

  • A deep understanding of how to consume and design RESTful APIs.
  • The ability, drive, focus and independence to work in a remote setting without direct oversight
  • Experience writing clear, and concise developer documentation and tutorials
  • Experience using developer tools and APIs to build integrations or extend products.

We Are 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.
