Who You'll Work With

Cisco Web Security
Our team is responsible for re-architecting the platform of the Web Security Product. We are agile practitioners and drive all of our code through tests. We collaborate heavily from the start of any feature with our QA Engineers. We follow the DevOps working model; this means we are responsible for our components all the way from design to writing the first line of code through to delivery into production and beyond. We are working towards achieving continuous delivery; so your code won't linger long before it gets into production. Most importantly, we like to think of ourselves as a relaxed and communicative bunch of individuals who are fun to work with.

We expect you to participate and actively shape the way that we design new user experience, and develop and maintain code in order to achieve high standards, rich user interfaces and constantly strive to improve. If you are team focused, love to collaborate, discuss ideas with your peers and encourage debate, we strongly advise you to apply!
