What You'll Do

You're a Lead/Sr Data Scientist, with strong and practical knowledge on data- mining and statistics who will ideally have experience in machine learning. You're smart, hard-working who see problems as challenges and strive to meet them. You will have a highly technical, yet multifaceted role: starting from real use cases, you will analyze complex, large and diverse data sets in support of the development team in charge of releasing the product, and you will collaborate with a wide range of experts in the field, reporting directly to a Cisco Fellow.

You come with a high degree of ownership who can bring solutions to the table. Your work assignments will be based on collaborative team goals. You thrive in a dynamic environment that requires an unusual blend of innovation and speed of execution.

Our technology stack includes Python, Java, Scala, C++ as well as a wide range of internal tools built on top of Docker, Kubernetes, Cassandra, Kafka, Spark, Hadoop, Pandas and a variety of front-end visualization technologies (D3.js, WebGL, HTML5).

For this position, you are highly “hands-on” with a deep technical expertise and experience in building distributed and scalable data-pipelines for ETL & Machine Learning and analyzing large heterogeneous datasets to build data pipelines from high scale (and potentially noisy) datasets. You also need to have outstanding oral and written communication (presentation) skills since you will work well with other data scientists and machine learning engineers in the team, but also other teams of networking domain experts.

If technology and innovation is your passion, Cisco is the place for you.

Who You'll Work With

We are forming a team of highly talented engineers for a confidential and strategic project with high visibility on Machine Learning & Networking and working with Fellows and Principal Engineers.

As a team, we have built one of Cisco's next-generation advanced threat detection system by combining ground breaking ML algorithms and architectures with best-in-class networking technologies (with dozens of patents). Now, we are aiming our next challenge!

Who You Are

Desired qualifications

  • PhD in Engineering (computer science, robotics, math, statistics, machine learning)
  • Experience building data pipelines for production systems at large scale.
  • Hands-on expertise of Python for ETL tools and data analysis (Numpy, Scipy, Pandas, Scikit-learn, Matplotlib, Jupyter, PySpark)
  • Knowledge of UNIX environments (Ubuntu), scripting skills (e.g., awk, shell)
  • Self-motivated, strong sense of ownership, good teammate.

Experience with the following technologies is an added advantage:

  • Analytics, visualization and dashboards (Grafana/Kibana, InfluxDB, Bokeh, D3.js, etc.)
  • Streaming data pipelines (e.g., Kafka, Apache Spark, Apache Beam)
  • Big-data stores (e.g., Apache Cassandra)
  • Data processing workflows (Luigi, Apache Airflow )
  • Microservices architectures and container technologies (e.g., Docker, Kubernetes
  • Experience with training and evaluation machine learning algorithms is a plus.
  • Excellent English spoken and written skills is a requirement.
  • 8 to 15 years of industrial experience
