Who You’ll Work With

Billions of times a day, computers around the world communicate with the Cisco Advanced Malware Protection Cloud and rely on the AMP product to protect them against advanced forms of malware.

Some malware is straightforward to identify, but antivirus has done that forever. Our customers need protection against malware that’s tricky to identify : Viruses that generate different binaries on every machine they infect Things that seem benign until you start looking closely at their behaviour Malicious programs that have invented new ways of hiding themselves To make the problem even more interesting : it may only become clear after a few days that a program or behavior was malicious.

Does that sound fun to you?

The AMP Data Team is responsible for running advanced malware identification algorithms on incoming event data streams and storing and indexing that data.

We index that data both for future detailed investigations of malware incidents, and to retrospectively detect previously unidentified malware in stored data.

We strive for sub-second processing latencies in our streaming platforms and databases as they handle data volumes of >

100TB / month and growing.

You will be tasked with maintaining and supporting a growing big data stack that includes technology such as :

  • Why Cisco

    WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Here’s how we do it.

    We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re old (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company.

    And a security company. A blockchain company. An AI / Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects.

    No other company can do what we do you can’t put us in a box!

    But Digital Transformation is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

    Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.

    We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

    So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are.

    Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us
