  • Join us to work on the next-gen platform for zero-trust security!

    Who WeAre

    Cisco Tetration is passionate about providing a security solution to protect customer workloads whether they are running in data centers, in the cloud, or a hybrid of both. Tetration gives customers a unified platform to monitor workload activity and identify the activity patterns to build Application Dependency Maps. Building upon this information, Tetration allows customers to enforce security policies as close to the workloads as possible, in order to achieve micro-segmentation and zero-trust security.

    The Tetration team is seeking motivated Software Engineers to join the team. The team is responsible for platforms software for Tetration physical appliance, Tetration Virtual appliance as well as Tetration as a Service cloud offering. We work with C/C++, Python and Go and we go deep into Linux, TCP/IP networking, Virtualization and Kubernetes. We enjoy understanding complicated systems and integrating them in a way that makes our customers' life easier.

You will share in designing and implementing new features to enable Tetration platforms within new and existing environments. You will understand a sophisticated distributed system that is running inside Tetration and write end to end tests for it. You will help debug issues that come up in testing, as well as document, and present your work to colleagues and support engineers. In addition, you will have access to many experienced engineers who are always willing to help.

    You are an ideal candidate if you have a solid background in Linux, Networking and Systems development. But above all, you will succeed with us by having a strong appetite to learn and a high sense of ownership a commit to quality.

    Your day-to-day job will include

    • Understanding existing features and maintaining them in response to customer requests or bug reports
    • Delivering high quality code with tests and documentation
    • Writing and maintaining end-to-end tests for the platform features

    #WeAreCisco, where each person is outstanding, 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 were old (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but were 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 cant put us in a box!

    But Digital Transformation is an empty buzz phrase without an environment 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, multifaceted 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? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
