Application Security Developer (Senior Role) (Remote), CNS
Location: Los Angeles
Posted on: November 22, 2021
The Cloud Infrastructure Engineering team at Cisco drives the
technology that's transforming the way product teams secure their
networks, and more importantly, their users. As an Application
Security Engineer, you will be a key member of the Security
Engineering team, which is responsible for the design, development,
and operation of security services and components that engineering
relies upon to deliver solutions to our customers. This is a small
team that does big things. At its core, the Cloud Infrastructure
team provides Infrastructure as a Service for engineering in dozens
of our edge data centers.
Who You'll Work With
The members of the Security Engineering team build and operate core
security services for the CIE platform. We are a team that is
supportive of learning and experimentation. Our customers are other
engineers in the organization, who we value above all else. We
pride ourselves in helping them succeed by providing them with
solutions for their identity, secrets management, and PKI needs. We
work closely with the rest of the Infrastructure Engineering teams
to build core Internet infrastructure, security applications and
distributed systems at scale.
As a member of this team, you will collaborate with engineers to
develop solutions to extend and enhance the overall CIE platform
offerings. You enjoy looking for ways to solve problems for
multiple teams with a considerate eye towards what kind of solution
makes the most sense (i.e. that's not always writing more code) You
are pragmatic and thoughtful and deeply aware of the fact that
there's no such thing as 'perfect security', but rather a
continuous balancing of risk trade-offs that need to be adjusted
based on a changing threat landscape.
Some of the things you will work on
Support Cisco product teams by building libraries, services,
templates and tools that make it easy for people to build secure
systems by default
Participate in/drive threat modelling and risk management of our
infrastructure and products
Support internal Cisco customers by extending existing services and
creating new ones
Design, build and operate highly available security services at
scale, using golang, bash, and other languages/tools as fits the
Develop solutions for networking and orchestration problems with
availability, scale and latency in mind
Improve the performance and security of a variety of systems
alongside your team members
The team could be a good fit for you if some of these apply to
Experience building and operating a high-transactional, 24x7
Experience with a DevSecOps (or SecDevOps ;) ) working
Strong familiarity with security as it applies to systems
Experience with applications that span multiple data-centers and/or
Mid to senior level engineering experience with application
delivery platforms for load balancing, caching, compression,
application firewalling, reverse proxy, SSL termination, etc.
Familiarity with Infrastructure as Code technologies (e.g.
Experience with applied cryptography including PKI, SSL, PGP
Familiarity/experience with SOC2 would be a bonus
Undergraduate degree in Computer Science
or equivalent engineering experience
Our interview process
One of the aspects of job searching that's always nerve-wracking is
the interview process. To help reduce that stress, our process is
fairly straightforward and we aim to be as transparent as possible
with it. The process generally is as follows
Screening call with a Cisco recruiter
A 30-minute call with the hiring manager
4 hours of interviews with the team remotely
1 collaborative coding exercise
WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents
to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive
future for all.
We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in
their digital businesses. Some may think we're "old" (36 years
strong) and only about hardware, but we're also a software company.
And a security company. We even invented an intuitive network that
adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what
we do - you can't put us in a box!
But "Digital Transformation" is an empty buzz phrase without a
culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even
failure (if you learn from it.)
Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, give
our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is
built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take
difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a
dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.
So, you have colorful hair? Don't care. Tattoos? Show off your ink.
Like polka dots? That's cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are.
Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
