Who We Are

Sedona, a startup that was recently acquired by Cisco, was an innovative company in the field of network control. Today we're developing the Cisco Crosswork Hierarchical Controller software – a solution that simplifies network operations of multi-layer and multi-vendor Core Networks, the continent-spanning networks that form the basis of the internet.

What You’ll do

As the manager of the Network Topology team, you will lead a group of engineers from Israel, India and Slovakia. The team is in charge of understanding how networks operate, the protocols that drive them, and how routers and optical network elements work. You will use this knowledge to build software that discovers networks, provisions services, and abstracts all the vendor specific parts.

Who You are

We are looking for an outstanding technical manager. The candidate will have to demonstrate strong interpersonal skills, understanding of development processes, and a good programming experience.

To qualify for this position, you should meet the following minimum requirements: 

  • Background in networking and in the service providers’ world. 
  • Programming languages: Python and Java.
  • Experience in leading software teams from concept to delivery, while efficiently resolving issues and removing risks and blockers.
  • Comfortable working in an Agile environment.
  • Familiar with micro-services based software architecture in a Linux environment.
  • Able to write code with strong design and coding practices
  • Ability to learn new technologies.
  • Strong communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills.
  • Highly proficient in spoken and written English.


#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. A blockchain 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, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take the difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment 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!
