What You’ll Do


As a Data Engineer, you are responsible for architecting, developing, scaling and maintaining our data pipelines and analytics infrastructure, covering a wide range of technologies, with a specific focus on high availability, scalability and security of our customer data. This position also consists in architecting, building, and launching new data models, systems and tools to enable our team to understand and consume data faster. You thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment that requires a unique blend of innovation, risk taking and speed of execution.


The role is for highly technical software engineers who combine outstanding oral and written communication skills, a deep expertise in large-scale and data-intensive cloud-based systems and, most importantly, an ability to autonomously plan and organize their work assignments based on high-level team goals.


We’re building large scale data processing and machine learning pipelines, both batch and streaming. Our technology stack includes Python, Java, Go as well as a wide range of internal tools built on top of Ansible, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Bigtable, Kafka, Spark, Beam and a variety of front-end visualization technologies (D3.js, WebGL, HTML5).


Who You’ll Work With


Our team is made of highly talented engineers with passion for innovation who turn wildly disruptive ideas into products that impact industry at large. We have built one of Cisco's next-generation advanced threat detection system by combining cutting-edge machine learning algorithms and architectures with best-in-class networking technologies (with dozens of patents). Now, we are tackling our next challenge and we are looking for agile, pragmatic and talented engineers with deep expertise and hands-on experience in data, cloud and highly scalable infrastructure. If technology and innovation is your passion, Cisco is the place for you.

Who You Are

You are a talented Data Engineer keen to build innovative solutions that have the potential to disrupt whole industries. You thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment that requires a unique blend of innovation, risk taking and speed of execution.

Desired qualifications

  • BS or MS degree in Computer Science or a related technical field
  • 5+ years of Java and/or Python development experience is required
  • Solid experience with dimensional data modeling and schema design for both SQL and NoSQL databases at scale
  • 5-10 years of industrial experience building and developing large-scale and data-intensive systems
  • Experience with batch and streaming processing platforms (e.g., Spark, Beam, Flink/Dataflow, HBase/Bigtable, Kafka)
  • Excellent English spoken and written skills (C2 level) is a must
