What You’ll Do

This position is the embodiment of Big Data, Data Analytics and Data Operations. You’ll be part of a distributed, dynamic team with broad responsibility across design, development and operations. You must be the type of person who has a track record in building and shipping products, comfortable eating your own dog food and wearing many hats in the process of planning, designing and delivering the platforms, tools and services to customers. This role is highly technical and includes hands-on development work, guiding other experienced Engineers and Operations staff, designing and reviewing designs, work-flows and data storage and data indexing solutions. While this role is not a direct management role it manages technology and solutions and requires exceptional technical judgement based on actual operational experience. The most important attribute in this role is the ability to quickly grasp complex problems and technologies and pragmatically map solutions to those problems and communicate designs to Engineering teams building those solutions. Strong analytic and presentation skills are also required.

Who You’ll Work With

Cisco Customer Experience (CX) is a multi-billion dollar world-wide business. The CX Platform Development team builds and deploys software systems that directly support Cisco’s CX offerings. Our team is composed of hundreds of Engineers across the US, Europe, China and India. Our journey is about shifting from Enterprise Software Development model towards a DevOps-based Software as a Service (SaaS) model fully leveraging big data, machine learning and distributed data analytics. We are adopting cloud technologies and deploying into a hybrid environment consisting of public cloud, Cisco data centers and on customer premises. Billions of dollars hinge on our team’s efforts.

Who You Are

This role has overall responsibility for the design, development and operations posture for our data storage, data analytics, and data retrieval systems. Technologies include Hadoop/HDFS, distributed block storage, distributed databases like etcd and Cassandra, and distributed streaming engines like kafka. It’s unlikely that a single candidate will have in-depth understanding of every single technology but they must be very strong in several, emphasizing big data solutions. This role is not focused on SQL solutions. A strong background in Oracle is nice to have but not a key value for this role without substantial other data system technologies as well.

This role requires string technical skills as well as strong communication and collaboration skills. The data repositories will cross organizational boundaries and likely technological ones as well. This role will require a forward thinking perspective with the ability to know where and when to compromise to balance short term goals with strategic objectives.

Minimum Qualifications:

10+ years experience building, deploying and operating complex distributed system software
Significant experience with Big Data processing – using Hadoop at a minimum
Must have significant data operations and software development experience (5+ years minimum)
Must have a Systems background – experience with complex interlocking systems is vital
Very strong understanding of cloud technologies – has deployed more than one solution on the cloud
Very strong understanding of networking and complex networked software systems
Hands-on experience with modern distributed systems: Kubernetes, Cassandra, Hadoop, MongoDB
Significant experience with SQL database systems, including Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, etc.
Experienced with modern cloud-based software tools and approaches (Git, CI/CD, automated testing)
Expert-level troubleshooter of software, databases, and networking
Bachelor degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience
Still hands-on – able to contribute code as well as design systems
Exceptional written and spoken communication skills and Executive presence
Detail-oriented personality who does not lose sight of the big picture
Entrepreneurship self-starter who inspires others with their work ethic and drive
