What You'll Do

As an engineer at Cisco Defense Orchestrator, you will be working on one-week sprints in a fast paced team to deliver a slick, fast, and consisent security policy management experience across the entire gamut of Cisco devices to our customers. You will:

  • Participate as a technical contributor on a fast paced team of engineers involved in the development of Cisco Defense Orchestrator

  • Contribute to all phases of software development from requirement gathering through implementation, testing and maintaining multiple code modules

  • Meet aggressive project goals and schedules

  • Create innovative solutions for complex technical problems.

Who You'll Work With

Cisco Defense Orchestrator ( is a SaaS product deployed on the public cloud that enables Cisco security customers to manage their security policies simply, consistently, and effectively across their entire portfolio of firewalls and services.

Starting out in 2014 with zero lines of code as an Alpha project (Cisco-funded startup), wehave moved fast, releasing new features to our customers every week and going from 0 to over 500 customers (including many household names). Our product is built using a microservices architecture written in Java and Node.js, and an intuitive UI built on Angular. Our core developmentteam comprises

multiple scrum teams split across the UK, Israel, and the United States. Our scrum teams have a great degree of autonomy, and are encouraged to come up with creative solutions to complex problems. We work on one-week sprints, with fully automated CI and release into facsimiles of production multiple times a day. We do not believein siloes — every developer is responsible for ensuring her or his feature is tested at every level (from end-to-end to unit tests), and we operate in a DevOps environment where developers with interest in learning to run large, scalable cloud services are responsible for deploying and managing our production environmenton a rotational basis.

While we work hard, we do like to let our hair down together; with a spot of bowling, some fancy cocktails, or a good old fashioned pint down the local. While we often work to aggressive deadlines, werecognizethe importance of a work/life balance and are supportive of fitting your work around your life rather than the other way round.

Who You Are

Essential skills:

  • Technical proficiency in Java and/or core JavaScript
  • Experience with Test Driven Development — if a test doesn't exist, we believe the feature doesn't either.
  • Experience writing automated tests (preferred frameworks - Protractor and Selenium)
  • Experience with Git
  • Experience with Linux
Desirable skills:
  • Proficiency in one or more scripting languages, such as Shell, Ruby, Perl or Python
  • A Bachelor's degree in Computer Science with 3+ years of experience, or a Master's or PhD degree with 1+ years of experience
