Systems Security Engineer

Cisco Systems Inc.
Toronto, ON M5H
Please note this posting is to advertise potential job opportunities. This exact role may not be open today, but could open in the near future. When you apply, a Cisco representative may contact you directly if a relevant position opens.

The Cloud Infrastructure Engineering team at Cisco drives the technology that's transforming the way product teams secure their networks, and more importantly, their users. As an Application Security Engineer, you will be a key member of the Security Engineering team, which is responsible for the design, development, and operation of security services and components that engineering relies upon to deliver solutions to our customers. This is a small team that does big things. At its core, the Cloud Infrastructure team provides Infrastructure as a Service for engineering in dozens of our edge data centers.


Who You'll Work With

The members of the Security Engineering team build and operate core security services for the CIE platform. We are a team that is supportive of learning and experimentation. Our customers are other engineers in the organization, who we value above all else. We pride ourselves in helping them succeed by providing them with solutions for their identity, secrets management, and PKI needs. We work closely with the rest of the Infrastructure Engineering teams to build core Internet infrastructure, security applications and distributed systems at scale.


About You

As a member of this team, you will collaborate with engineers to develop solutions to extend and enhance the overall CIE platform offerings. You enjoy looking for ways to solve problems for multiple teams with a considerate eye towards what kind of solution makes the most sense (i.e. thats not always writing more code) You are pragmatic and thoughtful and deeply aware of the fact that theres no such thing as perfect security, but rather a continuous balancing of risk trade-offs that need to be adjusted based on a changing threat landscape.


Some of the things you will work on:

  • Support Cisco product teams by building libraries, services, templates and tools that make it easy for people to build secure systems by default
  • Participate in/drive threat modelling and risk management of our infrastructure and products
  • Support internal Cisco customers by extending existing services and creating new ones
  • Design, build and operate highly available security services at scale, using golang, bash, and other languages/tools as fits the situations needs
  • Develop solutions for networking and orchestration problems with availability, scale and latency in mind
  • Improve the performance and security of a variety of systems alongside your team members

The team could be a good fit for you if some of these apply to you:

  • Experience building and operating a high-transactional, 24x7 production environment
  • Experience with a DevSecOps (or SecDevOps ;) ) working environment
  • Strong familiarity with security as it applies to systems engineering
  • Experience with applications that span multiple data-centers and/or cloud controllers
  • Experience with application delivery platforms for load balancing, caching, compression, application firewalling, reverse proxy, SSL termination, etc.
  • Familiarity with Infrastructure as Code technologies (e.g. Terraform, Ansible)
  • Experience with applied cryptography including PKI, SSL, PGP
  • Familiarity/experience with SOC2 would be a bonus
  • Undergraduate degree in Computer Science
  • or equivalent engineering experience


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!
