Software Engineering Lead: CDO

Cisco Systems Inc.
Cambridge, MA 02139

Technical Lead

Cisco Systems is offering an extraordinary opportunity to be part of a small, innovative team with a low process, high throughput culture. The team is working on Cisco Defense Orchestrator, which manages policy and configuration of Security Business Group's firewalls and security services. We are looking for an energetic engineering lead who can help define and drive our cross-appliance policy and configuration management architecture.

What you'll do

As a technical lead at Cisco Defense Orchestrator, you will be working on one-week sprints in a fast paced team to deliver a slick, fast, and consistent security policy management experience across the entire gamut of Cisco devices to our customers. You will:

Participate as a technical leader on a fast paced project team of engineers involved in the development of new, cloud based Cisco security products;
Contribute to and lead all phases of software development from requirement gathering through implementation, testing and maintaining multiple code modules;

Contribute to the development of aggressive project goals and schedules;
Create innovative solutions for complex technical problems;
Grow into leading engineering teams and running projects across a highly distributed engineering team; Mentor junior engineers.

Who we are

Cisco Defense Orchestrator (www.getcdo.com) is a SaaS product deployed on the public cloud that enables Cisco security customers to manage their security policies simply, consistently, and effectively across their entire portfolio of firewalls and services.

Starting out in 2014 with zero lines of code as an Alpha project (Cisco-funded startup), we have moved fast, releasing new features to our customers every week and going from 0 to over 500 customers (including many household names).

Our product is built using a micro-services architecture written in Java and Node.js, and an intuitive UI built on Angular. Our core development team comprises multiple scrum teams split across the UK, Israel, and the United States. Our scrum teams have a great degree of autonomy, and are encouraged to come up with creative solutions to complex problems. We work on one-week sprints, with fully automated CI and release into facsimiles of production multiple times a day. We do not believe in silos every developer is responsible for ensuring her or his feature is tested at every level (from end-to-end to unit tests), and we operate in a DevOps environment where developers with interest in learning to run large, scalable cloud services are responsible for deploying and managing our production environment on a rotational basis.

While we work hard, we do like to have fun on a regular basis whether it's going on a team event or have a beer at a local bar. While we often work to aggressive deadlines, we recognize the importance of a work/life balance and are supportive of fitting your work around your life rather than the other way round.

Who you are

Experience architecting innovative, scalable SaaS products;

Extensive technical depth in core Java, with a focus on scalability and security;
Ability to do testdriven development and mentor others to do so.
Ability to deliver high quality features with extensive automation coverage, including experience applying test driven development methodology; Experience developing multiple products from conception to shipping;
Ability to communicate technical concepts to a wide range of audiences spanning executives to junior engineers;
Proven ability to successfully lead distributed teams and run projects across multiple locations;
Knowledge of security technologies including firewalls, IPS, Web Security;
A Bachelor's degree in a numerate field with 10+ years of experience

Experience working in a start-up environment; Agile software development experience; Experience with network configuration products.
