What You'll Do
Cisco has been operating a number of large cloud properties based on OpenStack and other virtualization technologies. The use of these clouds includes large, external facing SaaS platforms (e.g. Spark) and managed private enterprise clouds (e.g. Metacloud).

The next phase of Cisco's cloud journey is to use its experience with large cloud deployments, to combine it with new technologies (e.g. Docker, K8S), leverage new in-house innovation (e.g. Mantl), and technology from recent acquisitions (e.g. Cliqr, Piston) along with Cisco's unique capabilities at the network and hardware level (e.g. UCS, ACI) to create the Next Generation Data Center.

The organization is positioned for maximum innovation velocity by adopting optimal organizational, operational and development methodologies (e.g. service architecture, don't build cathedrals, iterate, partner for feedback, fail-fast, DevOps). Our ambition is to create multiple, modular cloud stacks that allow enterprise workloads to consume infrastructure in an elastic, federated API-driven service model while leveraging the best-in-class hybrid cloud orchestration and deployment automation technology.

Cisco Cloud Foundation will automate any and all deployment and management processes from bare metal through virtualization, containerization, storage, security, identity management and all other data center and service components, up to and including the dynamic deployment, scaling and life cycle management of single or hybrid cloud workloads. Cisco's cloud stacks will offer unique capabilities due to Cisco's expertise at the network level that we will weave into all layers of the stacks and expose in the same API-driven fashion as everything else in the stacks.

Who You'll Work With
Cisco is building the next generation of the Cisco Cloud and Cisco Cloud Platform. This is your chance to be part of the team that accelerates Cisco's cloud journey. We combine Cisco technologies with the best Open Source technologies to build and operate a world-class cloud.
