Who You'll Work With and What are we building next?

The next generation of NOS architecture - hardware and software that aligns with SDN, is highly modular and programmable, supports modern software principles and distributed system constructs, and works at hyper-scale.

  1. Strong experience in growing & leading teams developing routing and infrastructure software for real-time network operating systems
  2. Experience in leading large projects across multi-geographic teams

How do we work?

"Fast, Agile and Perfect"

Customers are now demanding features turned around in weeks, see them work in their labs and deploy them in an Agile manner; enhance the implementation based on field feedback and so on. You need to be excited about understanding the requirement, design and code them to deliver a quick early drop and be agile to refine it based on real field feedback to make it ready for deployment. In all of this, the top focus is a must on the aspect of quality, so that our Customers do not lose time and money during their deployment and Operations.

"Outcome-based and Customer focus"

Cisco wins when the customer wins and makes money, after deploying your new implementation! This needs very close Customer engagement right from understanding their requirement/deployment scenarios, iteratively seek feedback both ways and pro-actively and quickly turn around any questions or issues customers find - to enable them to deploy and win quickly!

"Empowered Teams, Fun and Open Culture"

Each team decides collectively on the best options to help the customer situation in an empowered manner. We celebrate Customer wins and milestone achievements and relish our hard work that made it happen! - Many times with the Customers.

Engineers have the flexibility to work across multiple technology components with soft-component ownership that enhances their learning potential.

What You'll Do and WIFM - What's in It For Me?

1. Build your leadership & expertise on the best-in-class modular, fully distributed, highly available, highly secure network operating system and routing platform

2. Work directly with top and worldwide customers like Service Providers, Web/OTT, Cloud/DC providers, large enterprises, and learn how the world of Edge and Core networking is evolving

3. Evolve IOS-XR into the new Virtualized world and be part of the journey of driving the Customers towards enabling of Virtualized Cloud-based Network Services

4. Lines between networking software (NOS) and application software are blurred since networking is just another application in modern times. Differentiate yourself by going above and beyond plain app software development.

5. Become an Agile expert
