The Mission

As a new member of the team, you will be helping to grow, scale, and improve the reliability of Cisco’s next generation of remote access solutions. You will be a part of a team working to change the way that remote workers all over the world will be securely connecting to internal applications and using the internet. As a team/organization we own the entire stack from applications to hardware, and you will be empowered to solve problems in the ways that will make the biggest difference to our customers. With your direct team you will own a core set of services for managing connections, and will interface with a number of other teams to leverage the world class expertise of the Umbrella (formerly OpenDNS) network engineering team in order to provide the most seamless experience possible for our customers.

About the team:

The Cloud Infrastructure Engineering team at Cisco drives the technology that's redefining the way IT departments secure their networks, and more meaningfully, their users.
As a Cloud Infrastructure Engineer, you will be a key member of a network engineering VPN team responsible for the design, development, and operation of a highly available global cloud-based VPN service at scale. This is a small team that does big things. We operate in dozens of data centers globally and are constantly expanding to offer greater services and more effectively deliver solutions to our customers.
 
Who You'll Work With:

This full-stack engineering team is a mix of engineers who have come from network, systems, and software engineering roles and experiences.
We work closely with other Cisco Security product engineering teams developing customer facing security services, and with the Cloud Infrastructure Engineering teams building core Internet infrastructure and distributed systems to help deliver the services globally more effectively and efficiently at scale.
The team invests heavily on continual improvement in automation and optimization. Everything needs to scale horizontally and autonomously with stability, resiliency at a high performance with the flexibility to adapt. We take great pride in building and operating one of the most hyperconnected and highly optimized global anycast networks in the world.

We Are 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!
