What You'll Do:
It used to be that high-speed packet forwarding was performed in dedicated ASIC designs. These days we are looking to make those ASICs more general and programmable. The Datacenter team is looking for an expert Senior Design Engineer to drive existing projects and engage in new development of our Nexus 9K family.
Cisco DataCenter develops high-performance switches for the data center and for the cloud. You will be working with the team that develops the ASICs at the heart of each of these switch products. There are only a very few teams worldwide that implement such devices. Every time you access the Internet, chances are, your data's been through one of our switches.
Who You'll Work With:
You’ll be part of a team within Cisco’s Data Center Networking Group, focusing on developing high-performance networks for the Data Center and Cloud. We’re a small team of software experts building the SDK to configure custom silicon switches, which form the backbone of the Data Center.
Who You Are:
You will collaborate closely with the ASIC team and other software teams to bring switches to production, working across chip generations, network topologies, and protocols. There are only a few teams worldwide that implement switches at this scale, and we take pride in the impact of our work. Every time you access the Internet, chances are, your data's been through one of our switches.
Knowledge and Skills:
- L2/L3, multicast and tunneling forwarding features
- L2/L3 data path features, including traffic management: queuing, shaping, policing, QOS
- Ethernet MAC layer, SerDes, and Auto-Negotiation standards
- Chassis based designs with system-level code
- Quality and reliability
We connect everything: people, processes, data, and things. We innovate everywhere, taking bold risks to shape the technologies that give us smart cities, connected cars, and handheld hospitals. And we do it in style with unique personalities who aren’t afraid to change the way the world works, lives, plays and learns.
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.
