Full Stack Desktop Software Engineer, Collaboration Technology Growth Team
What You'll Do
Cisco's newly-formed Growth Team is on a mission to find new users and delight customers for our flagship messaging and video-conferencing product, Spark. We are laser-focused on improving Spark's user experience - from initial awareness and onboarding, to day-to-day usage and support. We conduct experiments and use insights from data to drive our decisions.
On the Growth Team, you will work alongside a group of Designers, User Researchers, Data Scientists, Product Managers, and other Growth Engineers to design & execute experiments that will be seen or experienced by millions of people in a fast, collaborative process.
As a full-stack growth engineer, you will design, build, test, and release changes to the Spark product and our marketing tools. In this highly versatile role, your day-to-day work will directly impact large areas of the product and challenge your technical expertise as you develop across our front-end Windows client, back-end micro-services, and the tools we use to communicate with and understand our users.
Who You'll Work With
We are a creative, diverse, and data-driven team, focused on continuous learning about our customers' behaviors. We care deeply about the customer experience, and cherish the insights we uncover through our experimentation and analytics. We constantly partner with product, marketing, and support teams to run A/B tests, share knowledge, and use data to inform and influence roadmaps and business decisions.
Our tools empower us to move fast and dive deep - building and deploying tests to anticipate and rapidly respond to our customer's needs. We measure in days, not weeks, and monitor our experiments' results in real-time. We operate on evidence, evolving as we learn from our experiments.
Who You Are
