Who We Are 

The Collaboration Technology Group transforms the connections between people and the information they need to share which is essential to better the business. We improve collaboration with technology that empowers people to engage and innovate anywhere, on any device.  

Within the technology group we are focused on further transforming the technology by weaving in Adaptive Intelligence to be the information superhighway – connecting people, their work, and their physical world together through intelligence, personalization, relationships, and analytics to innovate, attract and retain talent, enable a global, mobile workforce, and engage customers in a more efficient way.  

As part of the Voicea team acquired by Cisco in 2019, you will work closely with other motivated and hardworking engineers to deliver Voicea's industry-leading AI capabilities to millions of users world-wide.  

What You Will Do


  • Architect, build, and launch scalable data pipelines to support Webex growing data processing and analytics needs. Some upcoming projects you may work on include designing and implementing pipelines that deliver data with high quality, consistency, and timeliness. Evangelize high-quality software engineering practices for building data infrastructure and pipelines at scale 

  • Build and maintain large scale distributed systems to support the whole pipeline from data collection and training to deployment and real-time serving 

  • Ability to explore large datasets and find key descriptive and inferential properties in large and diverse datasets. Identify patterns and interactions in the data, and to clearly articulate impact of such data properties on proposed use cases. 

  • Build models, algorithms, and mechanisms in large scale production systems using A/B experimentation and using state-of-the-art research techniques. 

  • Build abstractions to automate various steps in different ML workflows 

  • Drive the collection of new data and the refinement of existing data sources; develop relationships with product engineering teams to manage our analytic data model as the product evolves.  

  • Design our data models for optimal storage and retrieval and to meet critical product and business requirements. 

Who You Are 

  • Expert analytical skills, ability to transform business requirements into highly reliable software processes 

  • Proficient in programming languages: Python, Go and Bash scripting 

  • Experience with big data architectures and data modeling, preferably with distributed systems such as Hadoop, BigTable, and Cassandra to efficiently process large volumes of data. 

  • Experience using workflow management engines (e.g. Airflow, Luigi, Prefect, Dagster,, Google Cloud Composer, AWS Step Functions, Azure Data Factory, UC4, Control-M) 

  • Advanced SQL and database knowledge. Including experience working with OLAP databases like Redshift, Snowflake, BigQuery, etc and OLTP databases like MySQL, Postgres, etc. 

  • Appreciate agile software processes, data-driven development, reliability, and responsible experimentation.

  • Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree in CS/EE, or equivalent experience 


We Are Cisco 

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Here’s how we do it. 

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security 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 can’t 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? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool.
