ThousandEyes (part of Cisco)

Senior Data Engineer, WAN Insights

Job description

Who We Are

The name ThousandEyes was born from two big ideas: the power to see what’s not ordinarily possible, and the ability to collect intelligence from vantage points as diverse and global as the Internet. As organizations depend on cloud services, the Internet has become their defacto network connecting cloud applications to users. Our Internet and cloud intelligence platform is like a ‘Google maps of the Internet’, providing the only collectively powered view of digital experiences end-to-end. We enable our customers made up of the world’s largest and fastest-growing brands, to identify problems before they impact revenue, brand reputation, or employee productivity.

In August 2020, Cisco Systems completed the acquisition of ThousandEyes, which now forms the ThousandEyes Business Unit within Cisco’s Network Services Business Group, and is a foundational component of Cisco’s growing Observability business.

About The Role

ThousandEyes is looking for a Data Engineer to help us scale our recommendations engine and our first use case, WAN Insights. WAN Insights is the cornerstone of Cisco’s Predictive Networks vision.

In this role you will be contributing to expanding and improving our distributed data processing pipeline and platform. From ingesting large volumes of data to helping our data scientist tackle the scalability challenges, this role offers both breadth and depth. You will often connect cross-functionally and be a reference person when it comes to good software engineering practices and distributed data processing.

Our mission is changing the approach to network optimization: from reactive to preventive. We want to improve the user Quality of Experience by adjusting the network proactively, before any disruption is experienced. If connecting with multiple data sources and making sure your jobs live up to the terabytes challenge to deliver on this mission doesn’t scare you, rather it excites you, then we want to hear from you!

  • Understanding of non-basic networking concepts and trends, e.g., SD-WAN, SASE.
Why Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do –you can’t 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, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colourful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us.

We recognize that diverse teams make the strongest teams, and we encourage people from all backgrounds to apply.
