What You'll Do

Cisco is looking for a talented developer to add to our threat intelligence and incident response product team. Using Clojure, we develop data sources to services to 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.

Who You’ll Work With

Our ThreatGRID 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.

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.
