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 engineer, you will be a key member of the Compute Virtualization 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 Compute platform provides Infrastructure as a Service for engineering in dozens of our "edge" data centers.
Who You'll Work With
The experience of members of the Compute team cuts across all layers of the stack. We are a team that is supportive of learning and experimentation. Our customers are engineers in the organization, who we value above all else. We pride ourselves in seeing them succeed by leveraging our platform. We work closely with the rest of the Infrastructure Engineering teams to build core Internet infrastructure, security applications and distributed systems at scale.
As a member of this team you will collaborate with engineers to develop solutions to extend and enhance the services offered by the platform. You will work through the entire lifecycle of a feature from its conception to development to operation.
Some of the things you will work on
Design, build and operate highly available, distributed compute services used by engineering
Collaborate with software and infrastructure engineering teams to design solutions to enable them
Learn the ins and outs of supporting a cloud platform running 24x7 production services
Deploy applications worldwide
Fine-tune configuration and improve the performance of a variety of systems alongside with your team
The team could be a good fit for you if several of these apply to you:
Enjoy troubleshooting systems and applications through the entire stack
Are interested in building solid applications in a variety of languages (Golang, Python...)
Know your way around a unix terminal
Have built or deployed applications using cloud technologies (AWS, Google Cloud, Docker Cloud...)
Are passionate about building solutions with security in mind
Like working collaboratively with a team and making friends in the process
