What You'll Do 
Senior Data Scientist
San Jose, CA
You will have a multi-faceted role: starting from real use cases, you will cover the full product development cycle from first investigation to the development of novel and scalable prototypes based on machine learning algorithms until the release of the product, interfacing with a wide range of experts in the field. You thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment requires a unique blend of innovation and speed of execution. The role is for highly technical machine learning engineers who combine outstanding oral and written communication skills, an ability to quickly code up prototypes using a large range of tools, algorithms and languages and, most importantly, an ability to autonomously plan and organize their work assignments based on high-level team goals. Our technology stack includes Python, Scala, Haskell, C++ as well as a wide range of internal tools built on top of Docker, Kubernetes, Cassandra, Kafka, Spark, Hadoop, Pandas and a variety of front-end visualization technologies (D3.js, WebGL, HTML5).
 Who You'll Work With Our team is made of highly talented engineers with passion for innovation who turn wildly disruptive ideas into products that impact industry at large. We have built one of Cisco's next generation advanced threat detection system by combining cutting-edge machine learning algorithms and architectures with best-in-class networking technologies (with dozens of patents). Now, we are tackling our next challenge and we are looking for agile, pragmatic and talented engineers with deep expertise and hands-on experience in machine learning, software engineering and data science. If technology and innovation is your passion, Cisco is the place for you. Who You Are Desired qualifications * PhD in Engineering degree (computer science, robotics, mathematics, statistics, machine learning) * Strong background in classical machine learning and graphical models is a must, preferably with 3 to 15 years of industrial experience . * Knowledge of deep learning, reinforcement learning and natural language processing is a plus. * Hands-on experience of Linux and Shell scripting, ability to manipulate large-scale structured datasets. * Outstanding programming skills. Experience in functional programming, reactive and service-oriented architectures is a plus. * Experience with GPU computing (CUDA) and deep learning libraries (TensorFlow, Caffe, Theano, etc.) is a plus. * Excellent English spoken and written skills (C1 level) is a must. Why Cisco We connect everything: people, processes, data, and things. We innovate everywhere, taking bold risks to shape the technologies that give us smart cities, connected cars, and handheld hospitals. And we do it in style with unique personalities who aren't afraid to change the way the world works, lives, plays and learns. We are thought leaders, tech geeks, pop culture aficionados, and we even have a few purple haired rock stars. We celebrate the creativity and diversity that fuels our innovation.
