What You'll Do
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.

Service Enablement Team are in the middle of these challenges, focused on understanding the problems of today to drive the design and architecture of the future. Our Engineers are full-stack and empowered to work on the solution at any point across the codebase and networking stack. We are looking for a 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:
