The Cloud Infrastructure Engineering team at Cisco drives the technology that's transforming the way product teams secure their networks, and more importantly, their users.

As an Application Security Engineer, you will be a key member of the Security Engineering team, which is responsible for the design, development, and operation of security services and components that engineering relies upon to deliver solutions to our customers.

This is a small team that does big things. At its core, the Cloud Infrastructure team provides Infrastructure as a Service for engineering in dozens of our edge data centers.

Who You'll Work With

The members of the Security Engineering team build and operate core security services for the CIE platform. We are a team that is supportive of learning and experimentation.

Our customers are other engineers in the organization, who we value above all else. We pride ourselves in helping them succeed by providing them with solutions for their identity, secrets management, and PKI needs.

We work closely with the rest of the Infrastructure Engineering teams to build core Internet infrastructure, security applications and distributed systems at scale.

About You

As a member of this team you will collaborate with engineers to develop solutions to extend and enhance the overall CIE platform offerings.

You enjoy looking for ways to solve problems for multiple teams with a considerate eye towards what kind of solution makes the most sense (i.

e. that’s not always writing more code) You are pragmatic and thoughtful and deeply aware of the fact that there’s no such thing as perfect security’, but rather a continuous balancing of risk tradeoffs that need to be adjusted based on a changing threat landscape.

Some of the things you will work on :

  • Support Cisco product teams by building libraries, services, templates and tools that make it easy for people to build secure systems by default
  • Participate in / drive threat modeling and risk management of our infrastructure and products
  • Support internal Cisco customers by extending existing services and creating new ones
  • Design, build and operate highly available security services at scale, using golang, bash, and other languages / tools as fits the situation’s needs
  • Develop solutions for networking and orchestration problems with availability, scale and latency in mind
  • Improve the performance and security of a variety of systems alongside with your team members
  • The team could be a good fit for you if some of these apply to you :

  • Experience building and operating a high-transactional, 24x7 production environment
  • Experience with a DevSecOps (or SecDevOps ;) ) working environment
  • Strong familiarity with security as it applies to systems engineering
  • Experience with applications that span multiple data-centers and / or cloud controllers
  • Experience with application delivery platforms for load balancing, caching, compression, application firewalling, reverse proxy, SSL termination, etc.
  • Familiarity with Infrastructure as Code technologies (e.g. Terraform, Ansible)
  • Experience with applied cryptography including PKI, SSL, PGP
  • Familiarity / experience with SOC2 would be a bonus
  • Undergraduate degree in Computer Science or equivalent engineering experience
  • Our interview process :

    One of the aspects of job searching that’s always nerve-wracking is the interview process. To help reduce that stress, our process is fairly straightforward and we aim to be as transparent as possible with it.

    The process generally is as follows :

  • Screening call with a Cisco recruiter
  • 30-minute call with the hiring manager
  • 4 hours of interviews with the team on-site or remotely (currently only remotely)
  • 1 collaborative coding exercise (not timed, not desired to take more than about 4 hrs of your time)
  • 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 musicians. We celebrate the creativity and diversity that fuels our innovation.

    We are dreamers and we are doers.

    We Are Cisco.
