Your challenge (should you choose to accept it):

Debating between a startup or Cisco? Let us help you. As a Cisco Software Engineer you will build high-quality, high-scale SaaS products that you will be proud of while helping to create the world’s best customer experience. Looking for customers, partners, and delivery engineers that will love the products you’ve built? We’ve got them. Along with support you can lean on and grow alongside as you learn modern Java and AWS Compute. We’ll also provide other skillsets for endless career growth as you become a leader in your field. We're the teams powering the tech of today, while creating the tech of tomorrow, and we are Cisco.

You’ll have the ability to define your own career path – from technical and managerial to even a different domain within Cisco. The sky’s the limit for the right individual!

About you:

To be successful in this role, you’d be a role model who exemplifies our culture and is often appreciated for living our principles. You are a software engineer through-and-through, by passion and by heart. When you see bad code, it hurts. You want to make the world – and all its code – better, and you’re dedicated to getting it right the first time. Simply because you don’t like doing something twice. You automate your work and enjoy writing new features from scratch, but you’re also okay with doing some heavy [PP(1] lifting, too. You don’t cling to only one programming language yet choose the right one for a given problem. Design patterns are prioritized over language-specific features. You’re ready to grow, and know your career has no limits.

It’s important for us to say that sometimes a candidate may have that “X” factor. If you think you have the potential for this role, go ahead, apply! We keep your application on file, so even if this isn’t the role for you, we look at our database first for new roles that open up.

Our Team:

Ask a Cisconian (that’s what we employees call ourselves) the best part of working at Cisco, and 9 times out of 10 we’ll say, “the people!”

Why 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, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take the 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!
