What You\'ll Do Our team develops Network Software stack for Routing protocols, Manageability protocols and solutions interacting closely with Core OS and System and works in close collaboration with Platform development teams to enable the Software stack on the existing and future platforms.
This team owns the charter on common software for Routing protocols like OSPFv2/v3, EIGRP, RIP, HSRP, VRRPv2/v3, GLBP, Multicast, manageability protocols including OAM, BFD, SLA and routing infrastructure RPM, PBR, Tunnel. Common software so developed spans across products in Service Providers, Enterprise and Data centers. In addition, team works on technologies including virtualization infra, Application hosting and Serviceability infrastructure software. Team also works on emerging technologies in data models, telemetry integration and routing innovations like Segment routing and Mobile-IP.
Who You\'ll Work With The Core Software Group (CSG) Platform Independent (PI) group is responsible for driving the PI software that works across Cisco\'s flagship routers and switches. We design and develop high-performance system software for various Cisco Platforms which includes Enterprise Switching & Routers, Datacenter Switches, and Service Provider Routing Platforms.
Who You Are We require creative and talented engineers with experience in developing high-quality networking products on schedule, with strong communication and collaboration skills, and a passion for innovation. In this role, you will be responsible for planning test activities, devising test cases and variations, designing test automation plans, manual execution of test cases and developing test scripts for new features, as well as maintaining existing features and areas. Collaborate with cross functional stake holders like system and solution test teams and development engineering in ensuring a deployable quality of the system and software. Work with customer interfacing teams in sourcing field knowledge into internal test processes, providing transfer of information, work with simulation/reproduction of problems reported and incorporate field learnings into internal test plans and processes. Exposure and understanding of IETF/public technical specifications.
Good experience in feature level testing and system level understanding of access, edge, core routing platforms and software stacks.
Test script development Experience in one of Python, TCL and/or associated environments
Excellent debugging, problem solving skills
Sound fundamentals in Operating Systems and Data Networking fundamentals
Strong Layer 2 expertise with hands-on experience in routing infra structure like PBR, ACL, Tunnel. Expertise in Layer 3 protocol like OSPF, IPV4/6 (unicast/multicast), VRRP, GLBP
Hands on experience test equipment like Spirent, IXIA, Sniffers, Packet captures (Wireshark) etc.
Exposure to Data Center technologies is added advantage.
Exposure to development of large/complex network devices including routing & switching systems.
We are thought leaders, tech geeks, pop culture aficionados, and we even have a few purple haired rock stars. We celebrate the creativity and diversity that fuels our innovation. We are dreamers and we are doers.
We Are Cisco #WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Heres how we do it.
We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security company. A blockchain company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do you cant put us in a box!
But Digital Transformation is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)
Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.
So, you have colorful hair? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool.
