We are looking for a Product Security Engineer to proactively identify and mitigate security risk to Cisco SBG.

- Liaison with product, customer support, sales and engineering teams to provide ad-hoc technical security expertise.

Skills you have:

- You have a strong understanding of many vulnerability classes impacting a variety of languages, with an expertise towards Python, JavaScript, Java, C, C#, and Objective-C.

- Youre comfortable manually auditing code for vulnerabilities as well as crafting threat models to discover design issues.
