What You'll Do

Come join a dynamic team that practices and innovates on the latest in cloud-based software development practices, including continuous delivery, continuous integration, test-driven development and PaaS-based devops. Our team is developing the next generation, cloud-based collaboration and mobile applications for Cisco, with a head start of a 50M+ user base and nearly all Fortune 500 companies. The office is located in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco – with easy access from freeways, Caltrain and various ferries, or our conveniently located facility in San Jose, you’ll be part of an innovative team of software developers, user experience designers, and product owners who are changing the way people collaborate.

For years, Cisco's vision has been to change the way the world works, lives, plays, and learns. Our vision is more relevant today than ever. We made the Internet what it is today. First, we focused on creating connectivity. Now, we're entering the Internet of Everything transition—an era where we'll help create unprecedented value by connecting the unconnected.

The Internet of Everything is a global industry phenomenon that is driving the biggest market transition for Cisco and our customers. This includes the intelligent connection of people, process, data, and things. It's where everything is converged on the Internet, making networked connections more relevant and valuable than before. To help us bring this vision to life, join us in our exciting journey.

Who You'll Work With

We are a small team, recently formed within Cisco, looking for client software developers to join us in building a next-generation collaboration suite for enterprises and consumers. Our product spans from mobile to desktop to web to custom hardware devices on the front end, and a scalable, robust cloud deployment on the back end.

Who You Are

Role Description

You will work on a team of developers implementing the Android experience for our collaboration product, working with product managers to define and scope customer requirements, and with other developers across client and server teams to deliver those features. The successful candidate will impact the project through solid technical leadership and will also appreciate expanding their horizons by wearing multiple hats.

Across our whole team, we practice a form of agile development called “continuous delivery”, allowing us to release updates to both server and client components on a daily basis. To achieve this, everyone on the team is responsible for contributing to the automated tests that allow us to release with confidence. The resulting process is extremely agile, allowing both our team, and the successful candidate, to achieve greatness.

We are looking for people with specific skills, but ultimately, experience with technology FOO or acronym BAR is not as important as pride in delivering a great product to millions of users. We are serious about building a great product, but our culture is one of supportive teamwork and fun.

Join a small team doing big things.
