Cisco’s Cloud Security engineers develop next-generation technologies to secure our customers from a wide range of security threats, malware and inappropriate content. We pioneered the SaaS model in security, and have already launched massively scaled products that are changing the way our customers protect themselves and their users.

With Datacenters distributed around the world, Cisco operates at a scale that few other SaaS providers can match. Our Cloud Web Security products scans billions of web requests every day and applies a range of heuristics, categorization and filtering technology to safeguard against attack. We grow as the web grows, so the challenge is constant.

We are looking for a technical thought leader to help drive these improvements and tooling required to scale the solution.

We have a fast-paced, exciting environment, as you would expect from a company at the forefront of technical innovation; with endless opportunities to develop your thirst for knowledge.

Key Responsibilities:

  • creating API’s and the platform that changes how users think about their APIs and makes managing APIs easier and more consumable
