The Business Entity

The Internet is becoming the “Internet of Everything”, and “Things” are driving an explosion in the number of connected devices (sensors, machines, vehicles) as well as the volume of data: The “Internet of Things” or “IoT”. The IoT Software Platform team is building the next generation infrastructure to manage over 10 million devices and terabytes of data per second.

The scale required to connect, manage, secure, and move data from these devices in a useful way is unprecedented and is going to require significant innovation to meet the challenge. The IoT Software Platform team’s mission is to meet these challenges.

The Team

Our all-star team comprises of diverse engineers and leaders who have led both successful start-up acquisitions and enterprise security and software teams. We consider Agile to be a culture, not a process. Test-driven development is a baseline, and we apply behavior-driven development when it makes sense. We leverage open source where it makes sense and lead or contribute to these communities.

You: We are looking for team members to help define and build the IoT Software Platform. You will have visibility into customer needs and we want you to experiment and engage in work that produces results. If this sounds like a place you can thrive, and you believe that untested code is broken code, that working code trumps Power Point slides, we want to talk to you.

We want you to help contribute to our culture. We will take team learn and play fieldtrips and you will have resources for multiple mentors. These positions are based in Cisco's San Jose campus where you will work with the engineers, partners and customer’s deployments and POC projects. Many campus benefits include newly remodeled gym with person training and a full healthcare facility with physicians, dentists and optometrists on staff.
