The scope and definition of networks is being redefined as more devices - sensors, machines, vehicles, etc. - are being connected. The Internet is becoming the "Internet of Everything", and "Things" are driving an explosion in the number of connected devices as well as the volume of data: The "Internet of Things" or "IoT". The IoT Software Platform team is building the next generation infrastructure to handle this. The scale required to connect, manage, secure, and move data from these devices in a useful way is unprecedented and is going to require significant innovation to meet the challenge. The IoT Software Platform team’s mission is to meet these challenges.  

The Team
Cisco is building a world-class team to build the IoT Software Platform, and as member of that team, you’ll collaborate with people who have deep experience in large scale, high performance, highly distributed systems. Our team is powered by people, and our people are empowered, have visibility into customer needs, and everyone is encouraged to experiment and engage in learning that produces results. Our leadership is deeply technical, and has a proven track record of delivering innovative technology. We consider Agile to be a culture, not a process. Test-driven development is a baseline, and we apply behavior-driven development when it makes sense. We leverage open source where it makes sense and lead or contribute to these communities. If this sounds like a place you can thrive, and you believe that untested code is broken code, that working code trumps Power Point slides, we want to talk to you.
