What You'll Do

As a senior backend engineer on the Investigate team, you will be a key contributor to the Cisco Umbrella Investigate product. You will build and maintain distributed systems while extracting data from a variety of sources. Our team works to pipelines to transform data to extract the most meaningful insights from it. API experience is helpful in order for our customers to interact with this intelligence. We use a wide variety of data sources to provide the best experience to our customers, from telemetry from our DNS resolvers, results from running algorithms developed by our researchers, to the results of running potentially malicious files in a sandbox to see how they behave.

Who You'll Work With

Cisco Umbrella enables you to securely embrace the cloud and better run security for the way the world works today. It protects users against threats anywhere they access the internet and secures your data and applications in the cloud. Cisco Umbrella Investigate is the interactive view on our threat intelligence, and this team builds and maintains it - ensuring impactful insights are right at our users' fingertips.

Who You Are

You enjoy working with AWS and JVM based languages and have proven experience over the past 8 years. Please have experience with Kafka or other streaming applications. The team uses Docker for development and deployments and uses many kinds of databases such as sql, hbase, elastic search, and redis. Most important, please enjoy designing, building, and troubleshooting distributed systems.

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’re “old” (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we’re 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 can’t 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? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
