Cisco is the worldwide leader in networking that transforms how people connect, communicate, and collaborate. Since 1984, Cisco has led in the innovation of IP-based networking technologies such as routing, switching, security, unified communications, video, and wireless. Our responsible business practices help ensure business sustainability and environmentally conscious operations and products.

What You'll Do

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will play a central role in the design and development of the Standalone Nexus 9000 product. Our ideal engineer will have a passion for development and a strong background in building dynamic, highly-available, highly-scalable applications using Java based technologies, as well as operating within a startup-mode environment.

As with any fast-growing startup, we look for self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced environment - which means wearing many hats, being able to change direction quickly, and showing an eagerness to learn new technologies as the need arises. Most importantly - we look for people who can prioritize, multi-task, and deliver.

Who You'll Work With

Data Center is developing the Nexus 9000 line of data center and cloud switches that feature application awareness to make the network infrastructure flexible and agile for dynamic response to application needs and virtual machine workload mobility. Data Center also developed a 40G Ethernet transceiver designed to drastically lower the price of 40G optics to better compete with other competitor switches.

Who You Are

            You'll bring 3+ years of software development experience on large scale, high-volume solutions

            Proficient with open source Java technologies

            Proficient working with relational databases

            Experience building service-oriented solutions and RESTful microservices.

            Experience with writing both unit tests and integration tests

            Experience with open source Apache products is a plus

            Experience with container-based deployment is helpful

            Deep understanding of Java multithreading, concurrency and memory management

            Basic networking knowledge is a must
