I am currently in Cisco’s Secure Access and Mobility Product Group, and hiring. SAMPG is a fast growing Business Unit within Cisco, offering Cisco Secure ACS, Cisco NAC, and ISE (Identity Services Engine) to a high percentage of Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, retailers, hospitals, schools etc. With this infrastructure in place, employees and customers can BYOD (bring your own device) and get onto the network in a way that protects the network and attached resources, and directs users to portions of the network permitted to them based on who, where, what device, and selected aspects of the state of the device. This could result in anything from exclusion to limited guest access to detailed policy enforcement including remediation of non-compliant devices. Cost-effective and policy-enforcing, this service is in use on a global scale. If you want to be part of something that helps millions of people get about their business, and you care about privacy, security, and scalability, I want to talk to you. Candidates only — no agents, outsourcing companies, or others.
We have open positions in San Jose, California, Netanya Israel, Bangalore, India, and Boxborough, Massachusetts, at several levels of experience. We are especially interested in hiring very senior contributors who can play a defining role in establishing architecture and design of both new and re-envisioned functionality, and be technical leaders within the group. We are ready to move quickly on the right fit. If you are too, contact me: email@example.com.
10+ years of experience in Java back end development. Prior experience scaling always-on, SaaS or on-premises systems for realtime responsiveness at very high transaction volumes. Network or telco experience most relevant. Experience in making architectural improvements to existing systems required. Agile development success and commitment required. Familiarity with at least one no-sql db helpful.
High transaction volume, big data, high availability SaaS systems have been a key theme in my experience leading software product development, across several startup and IPO-stage companies over the past many years. Prior experience also includes large, and on-premises companies.
I am active in software architecture and design, but also strong in getting the inter-disciplinary team working well together. I have found Scrum a particularly good agile methodology for achieving this and am certified both as a Scrum Master and as a Product Owner, in addition to being certified in ITIL Foundations. Tooling aside, producing that synergy mostly has to do with getting business folks to understand what engineering can accomplish, and how to best communicate with them, and getting engineering to understand why it is important to accomplish what the business folks have identified, and how to be predictable in delivery.

I have worked for companies successful in several business domains: consumer services, IT services, financial services, open source code management, data mining and analysis, secure remote networking, multi-level eCommerce, natural language speech recognition, computer-telephony integration, personal information management, and software to develop application-specific integrated circuits for the US satellite program.
While spanning these different industries I have worked with technologies from computation in fortran, to back end servers in Java, to the latest ajax web-based GUI’s. Results produced by my teams have met with numerous forms of recognition, including that work we did at General Magic was made part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution for Outstanding Achievement in Information Technology.
