Who You’ll Work With
Cisco Umbrella Engineering consists of Network Engineering, Systems Engineering, Site Reliability Engineering and Security Engineering - together, we build core Internet infrastructure, security applications and distributed systems at scale. Our environment processes 2,000,000+ requests per second, across 25 data-centers and cloud infrastructure providers.

What You’ll Do
Cisco Umbrella Investigate software engineers are responsible for building scalable software that process billions of data points everyday and generate security insights for our valued customers. We take an application initially developed for 100,000 users, to 50-100 million and beyond. The challenges can be significant and we own these applications end-to-end; architecture, software development, infrastructure and the operational component. At times, it may mean rewriting or refactoring of an application in order to automate everything and remove human dependency.
We are committed to getting it done... properly, the first time.
