Job Title: Senior Network Engineer
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.

Role & Responsibilities

As a member of the IoT engineering team, you will:

* Participate in the design and engineering of core wireless network nodes related to the fulfillment of mission-critical wireless data services.
* Expert level knowledge on internetworking technologies and thorough understanding of networking protocols.
* Directly responsible for initial design, configuration, deployment and support of Wireless Packet Gateway and GGSN platform. Will also perform appropriate level of research and development for future growth and enhancements of wireless packet core platforms.

* Knowledge of 3GPP wireless technologies and in-depth understanding of end to end connectivity and IoT services, IP core, cloud and virtualization architecture, Voice, Wi-Fi, LPWA technologies such as NB-IoT and LoRA. Excellent understanding of IoT solutions components.
* Strong knowledge of virtualization technologies like VNF, VNFM, NFVI, MANO, etc
* Knowledge of RHEL and Openstack implementations strongly desired.
* Drive towards continuous improvement through process automation and knowledge sharing.
* Contribute across the broader team on initiatives to expand knowledge, research and development for future growth and enhancements of wireless data network platforms.
* Define and develop architecture framework based on industry standards and create actionable solutions for practical, implementable architectural vision and framework tailored to customer requirement.
* Create professional quality engineering design documents and presentation material targeted for product management and various engineering disciplines.
* Knowledge and experience with “Platform as a Service” and “Infrastructure as a Service” environments or other application development platforms.

Minimum Qualifications

* BS /MS in Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent with 8 years of experience.

* Expert subject level expertise in wireless engineering principles and concepts.
* Advanced networking knowledge (OSI Layers, Network Topologies, Current and Upcoming IoT Technologies, etc
* Expert level experience with design and engineering of Cisco products. - CCIE preferred.
* Experience building highly scalable solutions.

* Must be motivated, self-directed and a self-starter
