Who We Are

Cisco’s Customer Experience (CX) organization is one of our fastest growing teams, and the CX Engineering & Product Incubation organization is redefining how Cisco delivers value to our customers & partners via our product portfolio. This team is charged with securing the offerings from CX Engineering & Product Incubation.

What You'll Do

You'll set the standards for secure coding practices for CX Engineering and work across application and platform engineering teams to ensure the highest level of security exists within the code. You'll architect, design, and drive controls that lead to strong secure code bases, using DevSecOps methodologies.

Acting as an authority in secure coding and design principals, you'll provide the detailed expert advice that engineering teams need to be successful in their security obligations.

One day you may be engaging with engineers and architects to build a threat model to ensure risks are appropriately managed; the next day you may find yourself researching the best secure training programs for coders. You'll review open security issues within the code base and drive the engineering teams to address the issues.

Who You'll Work With

As a core member of the CX Cloud Security senior leadership team you will collaborate across CX Engineering, CX Transformation, Product Management, Customer Success, and Sales & Marketing. Our team is an innovative security team redefining the way that Cisco protects data stored in the cloud, we're passionate about security and apply savvy risk-based thinking to create the best outcomes for our customers.

Why Cisco:

#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!
