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 the Software Development Manager of the Policy team, you will be responsible for the planning and delivery of features in key systems that support Cisco Umbrella. You will lead a team of dedicated developers that write, maintain and operate systems cr
ucial to the storage and delivery of Umbrella customers' policies. You will be the primary contact point for other teams with feature requirements that depend on these systems.

Who You Are

You enjoy working with globally distributed, loosely coupled systems in the cloud. You are self-driven and highly motivated to deliver top-tier solutions with minimal guidance. You are self-motivated with a strong sense of ownership. You have strong interpersonal and communication skills. You are open to continuous learning and committed to ongoing self-improvement.

You are an empathetic leader who will bring the best out in the team.

#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.

So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
