Who You'll Work With

Cisco Security Business Group (SBG) is at the forefront of developing solutions for addressing the security challenges of our customers. With annual revenue exceeding $2B, it is one of the fastest growing businesses at Cisco. As Cisco is transforming its business model aggressively to a software and recurring revenue model, security business is leading this journey with 40%+ YoY growth in software recurring revenue.

The Cloud Security group within SBG focuses on developing cloud delivered security solutions (SaaS based) in a platform centric approach. This group values and nurtures innovation in an incredibly powerful and high growth domain. The group was formed by combining some of the existing cloud assets Cisco had with two hugely successful acquisitions - OpenDNS and CloudLock. Our vision is to build the most complex security solutions in a cloud delivered way with utmost simplicity - disrupt industry's thinking around how deep and how broad a security solution can be while keeping it easy to deploy and simple to manage. We are at an exciting stage of this journey with 100% YoY growth, and looking for a hard-working, innovative, and productive engineering leader for our Product and Infra Engineering group to help us scale our business.

Business applications have moved to the cloud. Enterprise's critical infrastructure has been moving to public/private cloud. At the same time, the threat landscape has drastically changed with increased sophistication of attacks. The notion of traditional perimeter-based security is being disrupted. Since users, apps and infrastructure have all moved to cloud, security must too. Welcome to the team of geeks passionate about solving this very problem and making world a better placea secure place.

We have a highly scalable cloud infrastructure spread across 40+ data centers where we run our cloud security applications that operate at massive scale - 500B+ requests per day from 65M+ daily active users.

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 we are old (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we are 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 cannot 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!
