The Business Entity

We’re an agile, fun, passionate upstart culture within Cisco—balancing teamwork and integration with autonomy and innovation—to deliver the most effective solution to our customers’ problems. The unique mix of our disruptive approach to security and Cisco’s industry dominance exceeds what any other security startup could ever achieve on its own.

What You'll Do

We cover the full stack so you can start the day fixing a Javascript bug, hack on the API over lunch, and investigate database performance issues before heading home. Or, if you like, take a few days to focus on delivering a small feature that our tens of thousands of customers have been asking for and measuring exactly how often it's being used.

Who You'll Work With

You will join a dynamic, multi-talented Engineering team where new features are deployed to customers multiple times a week. We are Umbrella's proxy team and our mission is to improve the underlying proxy engine and the UI that drives Umbrella Security. We work on features big and small in order to build the best security solution in the world. This team does it all, so you'll never be bored, and you'll constantly be learning new technologies.

Who You Are

You're a Software Engineer that enjoys wearing many hats, a self-starter that's willing to jump headfirst into the codebase and start improving it immediately. This is a true generalist role, so if you've tried a few different web stacks and have your favorites, that's a good sign. Or, if you've got proven middle-tier experience and you're a go-getter, this would be a great opportunity to branch out. Our minimum requirements for this role:

  • Experience designing, implementing, and supporting large-scale transaction systems

  • Demonstrable Python, Java, C or C++ In-depth knowledge of object-oriented concepts, programming, and systems design

  • Understanding of various design patterns and Microservice Architecture

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills

  • Excellent analytical and troubleshooting skills

Desired Skills

  • Experience in an Agile environment

  • Experience building (and supporting) microservices

  • Amazon Web Services

  • Relational databases (MySQL, Amazon RDS)

  • Continuous Integration/Delivery tools (Jenkins, Docker, Chef, Ansible)
