Why Cisco
In Lysaker, near Oslo, you find Cisco Webex Devices R&D Center. We make the best video conference systems in the world whether youre at your desk, in the meeting room or in the Boardroom. We make both hardware and software and develop all parts of Webex Devices under the same roof - from idea to design, mechanics, industrial design, user experience, machine learning and artificial intelligence. By making both hardware and software ourselves, we're in an amazing position to be creative and innovate with our products. We simply create whatever we need.

Our products help people connect and collaborate all over the world. They are used by freelancers, small businesses, universities, governments, multinational corporations, powerful political leaders and even by Queen Elizabeth II.

We are looking for a new Agile tester to join our development team. Our team develops the next generation collaboration technology and cloud services.

What you will do:
Are you a person who likes to get stuff done, enjoys exploring technology, and is always looking for ways to improve it? Do you enjoy writing code, but dont necessarily see yourself as a full-time software developer? Perhaps this is a role for you!

We are a team of 350+ highly engaged, skilled and fun multidisciplinary engineers, and we need to talk to each other, show empathy and work together to develop fantastic products. In this role, you will be a key driver for great user experiences and quality for products used and relied on by millions every single day. As a person, you are more than happy to ask questions and to provide feedback both positive and negative constructively.

Who you are:
As embedded in one of our scrum teams, you are going to be in the middle of all of the exciting technology and ideas that are developed here. You will have close and everyday contact with software developers, product owners, UX designers, as well as other stakeholders and therefore, good interpersonal skills are key for your success in the role.

The responsibilities include qualitative and exploratory testing during the sprints, picking apart user-stories and questioning design, digging through logs and troubleshooting technical problems and probably most important of all: understanding our users and their needs. Our automated acceptance tests are written in Python, so any experience with Python (or similar languages) and developing meaningful tests is a plus.

Our dream candidate has:
  • Relevant education (bachelor's or higher)
  • 2+ years of working experience in a similar role
  • An interest in product development and team dynamics
  • An urge for continuous product and process improvement
  • Great interpersonal skills
  • A knowledge-sharing mentality
  • A willingness to learn and adapt 
If this sounds like you, we are eager to hear from you!

Why us?
At Cisco Webex Devices R&D Center you can have your cake and eat it too. You will get the creative vigor of a medium-sized company with close colleagues and proximity to the decision-makers. At the same time, you will have access to the resources of one the largest technology companies in the world.

We believe that happy people can make anything happen. Thats probably why we were ranked #1 Worlds Best Workplace in both 2019 and 2020. We have a culture of recognition and believe that flexibility in the workplace is the key to a good work-life balance.

In addition to a competitive salary, insurance, and other benefits, we offer:
  • a unique opportunity to work from home using the technology you develop
  • a Cisco Fun group dedicated to creating great memories
  • a Cisco Play group that organizes yoga and weekly bootcamps
  • an in-house fitness center to strengthen your body and relieve your stress
  • six weeks holiday to make sure youre well rested
  • five (paid) days for volunteer work to make the world a better place
  • a day off on your birthday because you deserve it
and of course, free ice cream on warm summer days!
