The Business Entity
About OpenDNS, now part of Cisco: OpenDNS is a leading provider of network security and DNS services, enabling the world to connect to the Internet with confidence on any device, anywhere, anytime.
 
Our approach is twofold; first Umbrella, our cloud-delivered network security service, blocks advanced attacks including malware, botnets, and phishing threats, while our predictive intelligence engine uses machine learning to automate protection against newly-discovered threats before they can reach our customers. Today, we handle more than 80 billion daily Internet requests from 65 million+ users around the world. Our global network has proven reliability and adds no latency. We protect each and every one of our customers' devices globally without any hardware to install or software to maintain.
 
Working at OpenDNS means being surrounded by passionate, intelligent and creative people that are determined to disrupt the Internet security industry with innovative ideas, world-class research and unrivaled products and services. It's a place where the best ideas are quickly transformed into products, features, campaigns and company-wide practices, so it won't be long before you witness the results of your hard work. But don't just take our word for it. We've seen nearly 100% year-over-year usage growth.

About the Team
You have the opportunity to join a fast-moving, multi-talented Engineering team where new features are delivered to customers multiple times a day. We call ourselves the A-Team, and our mission is to improve the OpenDNS customer experience in hundreds of small ways that add up to the best security solution on the planet. We cover the full stack, so you can start the day fixing a Javascript bug, hack on the API over lunch, and investigate database performance issues before heading home. Or if you like, take a few days to focus on delivering a small feature that our tens of thousands of customers have been asking for, and measuring exactly how often it's being used. This team does it all, so you'll never be bored, and you'll constantly be learning new technologies.

Roles and Responsibilities
We're looking for a Senior Software Engineer that enjoys wearing many hats, a self-starter that's willing to jump headfirst into the codebase and start improving it immediately.  This is a true generalist role, so if you've tried a few different web stacks and have your favorites, that's a good sign. Or, if you've got solid middle-tier experience and you're a fast learner, this would be a great opportunity to branch out.

Minimum Qualifications
*	Experience designing, implementing, and supporting a large-scale customer-facing web property or service
*	Demonstrable PHP, Python, or JavaScript skills
*	In-depth knowledge of object-oriented concepts, programming, and systems design
*	Understanding of MVC/MVVM patterns and Service-Oriented Architecture
*	Excellent oral and written communication skills
*	Excellent analytical and troubleshooting skills

Desired Skills
*	Experience in an Agile environment
*	Experience building (and supporting) microservices
*	React, ES6
*	Amazon Web Services
*	Relational databases (MySQL, Amazon RDS)
*	Continuous Integration/Delivery tools (Jenkins, Docker, Chef, Ansible)
