Support Team

Do the terms DHCP, OSI model, and TCP mean something to you? Excellent. Our top-of-the-line Support team seeks talented Network Engineers to join us in our San Francisco office. Our campus recruiting efforts are steered toward bright and passionate problem-solvers, to help support our rapidly expanding customer base across all of our product lines. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, offer co-ops, and recruit students who hold F-1 and H-1B visas.

New grads are granted immediate responsibility and are entrusted with handling real cases right away. We are looking for sharp individuals with a solid understanding of networking fundamentals, who are eager to be part of our dynamic and collaborative team. Our team has doubled in the past year, and we are looking to hire even more engineers in the coming months.

Upcoming Information Sessions and Career Fairs:

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, February 12

Purdue University, Feb 25

North Kentucky University, Feb 26

Rochester Institute of Technology, February 26

Wentworth Institute of Technology, March 27

Information sessions are generally hosted the day before the campus career fair, and offer students a chance to learn about Cisco Meraki products, ask questions, and network (hey hey) with members of the support team. Raffle winners at these events have also been rumored to score free access points and other Cisco Meraki gear.

On the day of the career fair, come visit the Cisco SF booth. Meet current employees, drop off your resume, and see if the position could be a good fit. After a first round of interviews, successful candidates are invited out to San Francisco for a final meeting. Spend a weekend in the Bay getting to know the area, all expenses on us.

Software Engineering

Over the past two years, we have tripled the size of our engineering team and have another 17 new hires starting this summer. Our group is growing so quickly that we’re still hiring!

We are looking for bright, proactive engineers who are working on projects of their own, who are driven by passion to go beyond what is required by school and work. Have something you’ve built that you’re proud of? Show us! We are fascinated by robotics, game design, and any other projects with which you may be involved. Share your passion and get discovered.

Upcoming Information Sessions and Career Fairs:

Harvey Mudd College, February 21

Rochester Institute of Technology, February 26

Come visit our booth at your campus career fair to learn more about the life of a Cisco SF Software Engineer. New events get added to our calendar all the time, so make sure to keep an eye on the Cisco SF engineering site, and take a look at some past campus events.

After first round interviews, candidates are invited out to San Francisco for a recruiting weekend. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet current employees, tour San Francisco, and really get a feel for what it would be like to work at Cisco SF. Check out past recruiting weekends and see if our kind of fun is to your fancy.

Enjoying catered lunch on our outdoor patio

We encourage prospective applicants to become involved with the tech talks and Meetups we host in our office. We periodically invite engaging speakers to come speak about the latest developments in the tech startup world. It’s a great place to grab some dinner, meet new people, and learn about new trends in tech.

Still completing your degree? Learn about our internship program for college students. Our interns get the chance to work with and learn from employees in our SF office, and many finish the program with full-time offers. Internships are available for both Engineering and Support roles.

Finally, keep an eye out for our virtual career fairs, which will give candidates who are unable to make the dates on our recruiting tour the chance to interact with current employees. We look forward to meeting you!
