Who You'll Work For
Cisco's Cable Business Unit has the industry's most comprehensive Cable product portfolio: high-capacity CMTS routers, Remote PHY devices, HFC components, and other SDN based management applications. We continue to be the market leader in cable related technology development, and in product breadth and market share. We are also one of the most active participants in defining cable related industry standards in collaboration with CableLabs.
Our Cable team is currently responsible for the architecture, and the design and development of the next generation cloud-based CMTS product called cnBR. This system is built around most commonly utilized cloud native open source-based components (Microservices, Kubernetes, Docker, Kafka, Cassandra, ETCD, etc). It is designed to run on a generic server platform running Linux Host OS (i.e., Cisco UCS servers). The design and development effort encompass building the infrastructure, orchestration, automation, telemetry / health monitoring, including CMTS L2 DOCSIS layer control and data plane for real-time performance which adheres to the industry specifications.

Generate engineering documents such as functional and design specifications, test plans, and user consumable documents
Use Agile development methodology
Who You Are
Have strong programming skills in Go, Java, and/or C/C++

We Are 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. 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.
