Senior Software Engineer TD&R | Clojure
What You Will Do
The Cisco SecureX engineering team is looking for an experienced, passionate Senior Software Engineer with energy and passion for technology and security. Using Clojure, we develop data sources and services to support analytics, front-end development, and data visualizations. We focus on simple (but not too simple) solutions, crisp abstraction and composition of services, and the pervasive application of functional programming.
You will be an integral part of our solution delivery team with the following responsibilities:
- Work closely with other developers to understand the threat data and write software to manipulate that data appropriately. More specifically, given a large sensor network, and a common language for collecting signals from those sensors, what can we infer? What are the criteria for determining relative significance? There are open, interesting problems, the solution of which can profoundly improve the security of our customers.
Who You'll Work With
Our team is distributed across North America and Europe. We work mostly from home and occasionally come into the office - if necessary. We very much value verbal and written communication skills, sociability, and pride in carrying out duties and discharging responsibilities with exuberance and alacrity. When you work with us, you’ll be part of a highly empowered collaborative team that cultivates team self-empowerment, self-organization and decision-making.
You will be part of an established but fast-growing organization that continues to thrive in the security industry. We draw on the best of agile themes and techniques of the past 30 years—continuous integration and deployment, testing, flexible collaboration with globally distributed team members via chat and video, and gradual, deliberate optimization of process in the name of keeping projects and releases flowing smoothly, in order to provide an excellent product to our customers. We are surrounded by talented QA, UX, support, documentation writers, and management - we hold ourselves to high standards. If you enjoy working with a group of creative, talented and enthusiastic individuals on problems at the intersection of data design, transparency and interaction, then this is the place for you.
Who You Are
You have proven experience in designing and delivering technical solutions and moving features to production. You are excited to work in the complex and expansive InfoSec problem domain. You have a passion for data engineering and Clojure as a solution domain. You have a good awareness of the balance between experiments, designs, and working code to be a multiplier for the rest of the organization.
- Have 8+ years industry experience, BS in Computer Science, or related field
- Excellent communication skills, both written and spoken
- Strong programming, debugging, and problem-solving skills
- Knowledge of Clojure
- Knowledge of software development practices and tools
- Experience in design and delivery of commercial software solutions with cloud-based architectures and containerized services
Strongly Preferred Skills
- Experience with Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, Kafka and Redis
- Background or trainings in information security (SANS, NICCS, STIX)
- Experience in Distributed Systems or Event-Driven Architectures
What We Offer
Unlimited experience in a high-profile and rapidly evolving field, working directly with some of the most talented developers, incident responders, and reverse engineers in that field. The opportunity to work on one of the largest Clojure code bases—and teams—in the world, with a group of friendly, inquisitive colleagues.
#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, , even creativity, and yes 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!
