What You'll Do

The Cryptographic Services organization is looking for a highly motivated Engineer to be a member of our team, providing support for our specialized cryptographic key management infrastructure, the critical piece behind Cisco's growing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and cryptographic services. We support a wide variety of internal Cisco teams needing key management, certificate authority, software signing, and other cryptographic services. Teaming with other specialists, you will update existing services to meet new business requirements, as well as partner with internal clients across the company to develop and build new solutions for emerging technology. As an engineer supporting critical services, providing after-hours on-call support during critical issues is necessary.

Who You'll Work With

We are a centralized group of architects, developers, engineers and project/program managers that specialize in building applied cryptographic solutions, delivering key and certificate management capabilities to the company, as well as enabling the business to deliver enhanced services to Cisco's customers. From encryption to anti-counterfeit to software-signing to information rights management to product licensing, this group of hardworking individuals provide critical security services across the breadth of Cisco's internal and external functions.

Who You Are

You are an experienced individual with the desire and initiative to expand your skills in a highly critical and sophisticated environment. You have prior experience in IT or Information Security environments and a track record of prioritizing multiple tasks.

At minimum, we require

  • 5 years experience working in a large Linux environment
  • Experience with scripting languages (Python, bash, etc)
  • Ability to resolve application and operating system issues
  • Excellent documentation skills (readme, how-to, wiki)
  • Ability to work across cultures and timezones

Additional skills and experience we would consider a plus:

  • Experience with Configuration Management (Ansible, Puppet, Saltstack, Chef, etc.)
  • Experience with Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment tools (GitLab, GitHub, Artifactory)
  • Basic understanding of Public Key Infrastructures (PKI)
  • Knowledge of Hardware Security Modules (physical or virtual)
  • Knowledge of key management servers (physical or virtual)


Why Cisco

#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 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 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? 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! 

Cisco Covid-19 Vaccination Requirements
The health and safety of Cisco's employees, customers, and partners is a top priority. Our goal is to protect and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 infection for strong business resiliency during the pandemic. Therefore, Cisco may require new hires to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 if the role requires business-related travel, meeting with customers/partners (including visiting third-party sites on behalf of Cisco), attending trade events, and Cisco office entry, unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law, and in countries where COVID-19 vaccination is legally required. The company will consider legally required accommodations/exceptions for medical, religious, and other reasons as per the requirements of the role and in accordance with applicable law.
