About ThousandEyes (part of Cisco)

The name ThousandEyes was born from two big ideas: the power to see things not ordinarily possible and the ability to collect insights from a multitude of vantage points. As organizations rely more on cloud services and the Internet, the network has become a black box they can't understand. Our Internet and cloud intelligence platform delivers the only collectively powered view of the Internet, cloud and SaaS platforms, helping enterprises and service providers work together to identify problems before it impacts revenue, damages brand reputation, or halts employee productivity.

In August 2020, Cisco Systems completed the acquisition of ThousandEyes, which now forms the ThousandEyes Business Unit within Cisco’s Network Services Business Group, and is a foundational component of Cisco’s growing Observability business.

About the Role

This is a regional role where you would be working standard working daytime hours, but the job would be performed over the weekend. You would be working 5 days a week of which Friday, Saturday and Sunday would be a part of it. The other two days would either be Wednesday and Thursday or Monday and Tuesday. We will build teams in Austin Texas, Mexico City Mexico, Krakow Poland and Sydney Australia to ensure we have 24x7 coverage.  This is a great opportunity for engineers who want to be part of the number #1  Great Place to Work and an awesome Saas technology like ThousandEyes.  

If you enjoy a variety in job responsibilities, this is the job for you.  A day may involve helping a customer identify network loss in an undersea cable, diagnose the cause of a route leak impacting significant portions of internet traffic, scripting an approach to monitoring a website's login flow, spinning up a lab environment to reproduce a strange set of behaviors seen in a customer's environment, saving a company hours of bridge time during a significant outage impacting their infrastructure by finding the smoking-gun in a network outage, or simply helping someone understand the way that our applications work.  The job is highly variable and requires both the ability to make data-driven decisions, and draw conclusions based on incomplete information.  We're looking for out-of-the-box thinkers who can complement and extend the already formidable talents of our Customer Enablement organization.

We Are Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Here’s how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do – you can’t put us in a box!

But “Digital Transformation” is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool.

An Insider's view of ThousandEyes (part of Cisco)

What are some social events your company does?

At ThousandEyes we celebrate our employees each month with many different events that have ranged from birthday celebrations to a Halloween costume contest and a field day at Zilker Park. Our goal is to create an environment where we are celebrating our entire team!

Christie

Workplace Services Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

ThousandEyes truly values its employees and that was clear to me from day one. I always thought that transitioning out of sales would be impossible without an MBA, however the opportunity was afforded to me at ThousandEyes.

Charles

Customer Success Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

One of our Sales DNA principles is "no limits". We demonstrate exponential thinking, we dream big, inspire our peers and act as the spark for change. I would say this is a common theme / trait across the tribe.

Luvlynn

VP, Inside Sales

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I believe ThousandEyes overall culture drives a positive work/life balance. Wellness is a DNA principle of ours, and it is truly taken to heart in all sense of the word. Top down, taking time away from work to spend quality time with family and/or doing what you love is encouraged and celebrated.
