Software Engineer - DevNet

About Us

We are the Cisco Modeling Labs team in DevNet Ciscos Developer Program. We are developing a cutting-edge network simulation platform, building on many years of experience in the domain. We actively explore and incorporate many modern technologies across the networking, software engineering, and DevOps domains. Our users range from individuals, classrooms, and large companies. We are seeking candidates who are passionate about building high-quality software, are self-motivated and willing to learn new technologies, and who want to build first-class software products with a large user-base.

The team values the principles of lean and agile development and seeks to grow the team with people who share these values. We enjoy innovating and prototyping new features but this is a commercial product. So we understand the importance of rolling up our sleeves and developing unit testing, documentation, and reducing technical debt - to allow us to be able to develop larger new features in the future.

Our team is distributed across the globe, so it is important to both be able to work independently and to know when to seek feedback from the wider team, especially on design and architecture decisions.

While we are engineers, our principal aim is to develop a product that is valuable to our customers.
