Who we are
The Cloud Infrastructure Engineering team at Cisco drives the technology that's transforming the way IT departments secure their networks, and more importantly, their users.
As an infrastructure engineering manager, you will be a key member of the team, which is responsible for the design, development, and operation of the platform 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
This engineering team is a mix of Network, Systems, and Software Engineers who are passionate about automation and building at scale.
We don't stop at configuration automation, we also build self-healing networks and make optimal routing adjustments based on latency 100's of times a day, automatically.
We take great pride in running one of the top performing Anycast networks for DNS in the world (OpenDNS, now Umbrella). We work closely with the rest of the Security Infrastructure Engineering teams to build core Internet infrastructure, security applications and distributed systems at scale.
You're a technical manager that will guide a new team of software, network and systems engineers. This is an ideal opportunity for someone with management and technical skills to put their abilities to work in an exciting growth environment.
As an engineering manager of this team, you will manage, inspire and coach our engineers to develop a large scale VPN headend solution.
You understand the importance of collaboration to find the best solution. You know what IPsec, SSL VPN or GRE is. You have built or managed multi-
functional teams before and thrive in an agile environment.
Some of the things you will work on :
You will help us build and lead an amazing new team of engineers that will run and build a 24x7 high available and highly scalable cloud-
based VPN service. This service will be used by Cisco customers to connect to Cisco’s global cloud infrastructure. There will be many challenges as we develop this and you as a manager will use your technical and interpersonal skill to help us work through that.
As a manager, you will be the service owner. You will help us recruit team members, help prioritize features, drive the regular development of the technical roadmap to meet the needs of the team, partner teams and customers.
You will partner closely with other Infrastructure and product engineering teams; and will be responsible for managing the relationships with those teams.

You enjoy managing and building a multi-functional team that owns the entire stack. You have built or managed multi-functional teams before and thrive in an agile environment.
You value building interpersonal relationships and understand the importance of having team members that you can rally behind an initiative together.
You are interested in building large-scale cloud-based services. You know your way around a Unix terminal yourself, and have built or deployed applications using various cloud technologies yourself.
You love learning and paying it forward by teaching others. Small teams that do big things need big ideas and people interested in helping bring these ideas to fruition.
You are passionate about building cloud based solutions with security in mind. Our services are used by millions of users every day from around the world, this gets you excited.
You are familiar with the various VPN technologies and understand how to build cloud-based services at scale.

One of the aspects of job searching that’s always nerve wrecking 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 is as follows :
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.
We are dreamers and we are doers.
We Are Cisco.
