Senior Infrastructure Operations Engineer (Compute)

Cisco Systems Inc.
Richardson, TX 75080

Who we are

The CIE Compute Engineering Team architects and maintains the compute infrastructure for various Cisco Cloud Security Solutions and is responsible for the design, deployment and operational support of more than 4000 servers in nearly 40 data centers across the globe, and we continue to grow. 

About you

Do you enjoy working with code to solve real-world problems and learn new things, while adding value by reducing toil and eliminating technical debt? 

As a senior member of this team you will collaborate with a team of Compute Engineers to build, deploy, scale and support production compute systems in a 24/7 environment across dozens of Data Centers worldwide. These systems provide services to the globally deployed CIE product portfolios which must be maintained to be scalable, secure, and highly available. Youll transform manual or partially-automated processes into fully-automatable tasks that will allow us to continue scaling and growing at a rapid rate. 

Some of the things you will do

  • Leverage your software development skills to develop scripts that solve real world problems for our customers
  • Champion and drive the adoption of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) practices and mindset 
  • Create automation and tooling solutions from operational workflows 
  • Partner with internal tenants to translate their business requirements into supportable solutions and collaborate with peers to help set and evolve the team's technical strategy 
  • Interact and collaborate directly with Data Center, Network, and Storage engineers to develop holistic solutions 
  • Work as part of an extended remote team with peers and tenants throughout the world
  • Leverage CI/CD frameworks such as Jenkins and Source Control Tools 
  • Continuously seek ways to enhance infrastructure monitoring and visibility 
  • This position will require you to participate in an on-call rotation for emergency support 

Desired Experience

  • Demonstrated experience supporting external customers in an operations role
  • Be able to program and interact with RESTful APIs 
  • Automate tasks using PowerShell, python or bash
  • Use configuration management tooling such as Ansible/AWX/Rundeck to manage a growing fleet of hardware 
  • Linux / KVM Configuration, Operations & Troubleshooting
  • Cloud Services from AWS (preferably), Azure, GCP, etc. 
  • Compute Platform: Cisco UCS Blade & Rack Mount servers (B & C-Series) or comparable 

#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!
