The Business Entity

We’re an agile, fun, passionate upstart culture within Cisco—balancing teamwork and integration with autonomy and innovation to deliver the most effective solution to our customers’ problems. The unique mix of our disruptive approach to security and Cisco’s industry dominance surpasses what any other security startup could ever achieve on its own.

Who You'll Work With

Working at Cisco in the Cloud Security Team means being surrounded by passionate, intelligent, and creative people that are determined to redefine the Internet security industry with innovative ideas, world-class research, and unrivalled products and services. It's a place where the best ideas are quickly transformed into products, features, campaigns, and company-wide practices, so it won't be long before you witness the results of your hard work. But don't just take our word for it—we've seen nearly 100% year-over-year usage growth.

What You'll Do

As a software engineer of the Policy Application team you will use technologies like Kafka, and Python to build a geographically distributed policy API and transport system.

You are self-motivated with a strong sense of ownership. You have strong interpersonal and communication skills and can work well within a team. You are open to continuous learning and committed to ongoing self-improvement.

#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 we’re “old” (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we’re 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 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, 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.
