Who We Are
Cisco doesn't always elicit the image as a hot software company to work for; this organization is changing that. We are working on Cisco's world-class product to connect all of Cisco's products through one cloud-based customer center. We will be enabling our partners and customers to see how their Cisco products are working for them, how they can increase the value of their purchases, learn about knew opportunities, engage with specialists to tackle their specific problems, and more. The CX Application Engineering organization is building elegance into everything we do, from our customer's user experience to how we collaborate as a team.
What You'll Do
You will build the "front door" for the entire CX Cloud Platform, crafting a user experience for Cisco's customers. Your day may begin with answering technical questions for the team and reviewing the code base. After lunch, you meet with the back-end technical leads about the latest product proposals; technical architectural limitations arise so you engage the product manager and UX designer. Bringing some design alternatives to the table; a healthy debate ensues where a solution is found entailing a more customer centric design that is also technically sound! Then the next day you are taking a class on Cyber Security and defensive programming.
Who You'll Work With
You will be part of an innovative Applications Engineering team responsible for overhauling the way customers and partners interact with Cisco. Our team develops forward-looking applications, solutions and services across cloud, desktop, and mobile platforms. This is an outstanding opportunity to be part of a team that is driving an innovative technical roadmap for next generation applications and cloud services in big data analytics, machine learning, and sophisticated visualization.
Who You Are
You are a technical leader who pushes the boundaries on engineering and design because it isn't about having code that works but having beautifully written code that produces a sophisticated user experience. You might have taught yourself how to code without going to college for it! You continuously grow your depth of knowledge on modern development practices and frameworks, as well as developing prototypes; this makes you a sought out technical leader. Mentoring new engineers to tackle difficult projects is inherent to you. While you have extensive knowledge of how things work, you are also humbled by those with different perspectives and the incredible value they add to your work.
You Are Highly Capable Of
- Building high performance, high availability front-end applications in a continuous integration environment with tools such as CircleCI, WebPack, Cypress, AWS CodePipeline and CloudFront
- Rooting out and resolving issues in one or more of the following Cloud Services; AWS, Azure, Google Cloud
- Writing and verbally communicating complex technical details to all levels of internal technology teams, non-technical business teams, and executive management
- Operating in and expanding upon Lean/Agile principles and actively adapting the processes to fit the needs of the development lifecycle
- Crafting system architectures, documentation, implementation, and deployment, of front-end projects
You May Be Good At
- Mobile development, iOS and Android
- Serverless technologies like AWS Lambda, Fargate, Stepfunctions
- GitHub, Circle CI, Atlantis, Terraform
- Java/J2EE, Springboot
#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.
We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we're "old" (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we're also a software company. And a security 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, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication 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!
