The Business Entity
We’re an agile, fun, passionate upstart culture within Cisco—balancing collaboration 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 surpasses what any other security startup could ever achieve on its own. 
What You'll Do
You will build the core security features and functionality of our Next Gen Cloud security product (Umbrella) and build distributed Web proxy systems at scale. Our environment processes 2,000,000+ requests per second, across 25 datacenters and cloud providers. Our approach is twofold; first Umbrella, our cloud-delivered network security service, blocks advanced attacks including malware, botnets, and phishing threats, while our predictive intelligence engine uses machine learning to automate protection against newly-discovered threats before they can reach our customers. Today, we handle more than 80 billion daily Internet requests from 65 million+ users around the world. Our global network has proven reliability and adds no latency. We protect each and every one of our customers' devices globally without any hardware to install or software to maintain. 
Who You'll Work With 
The team is passionate about securing the world and building cutting edge user experiences. You will be surrounded by passionate, intelligent and creative people that are determined to disrupt the Internet Security industry with innovative ideas, world-class research and unrivaled products and services. It's a place where the best ideas are quickly transformed into products, features, campaigns and company-wide practices so it won't be long before you witness the results of your hard work. But don't just take our word for it. We've seen nearly 100% year-over-year usage growth.
Who You Are 
As the Engineering leader, you have a passion for developing the team that will deliver security features to our customers in a very Agile environment and by working closely with the business, product management and engineering.  You have vision that demands business insight, technical acuity and the ability to think and communicate at various levels of abstraction. You can manage, motivate, lead and gain the respect of a highly technical engineering team.  Our minimum requirements for this role:  
* Minimum of 5 years of management experience 
* Experience working on a high transactional, 24x7 production environment 
* Experience with Security as it applies to software, system and network engineering
