What You’ll Do

As a Senior Software Engineer, you are responsible for developing, scaling and maintaining our cloud software infrastructure, with a specific focus on data-intensive technologies. You work in close collaboration with a team of data scientists and networking experts, supporting them with best-in-class software development methodologies and design patterns. You are a highly technical software developer, who thrives in a fast-paced, dynamic environment that requires a unique blend of innovation, risk taking and speed of execution.


We’re building large scale data processing and machine learning pipelines, both batch and streaming. Our technology stack includes Python, Java, Go as well as a wide range of internal tools built on top of Ansible, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Bigtable, Kafka, Apache Spark, Apache Beam 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 cloud technologies and highly scalable infrastructure. If technology and innovation is your passion, Cisco is the place for you.


Who You Are


You are a talented Software Engineer with several years of commercial experience augmented by good academics. You will be naturally curious, a problem solver and be keen to join an organization that is working on top-secret projects with the potential to disrupt whole industries.
