Duo Security, now a part of Cisco, is the leading provider of Trusted Access security and multi-factor authentication delivered through the cloud.
Duo's mission is to make security simple for everyone. We were born from a hacker ethos and a desire to make the Internet a secure place. We believe in empowering people to follow their passions inside and outside of the office and enable every employee to bring their whole self to work.
We're a diverse crew of makers and builders, skaters and coders, filmmakers and DJs, teachers and students brought together by a shared belief in adding value to the world. This diversity allows us to bring an empathetic approach to solve some of the most complex global business and security challenges faced today.
What you'll do...
As an engineer on the Zero Trust team, you will work on web services that will support our top-tier products. You will be involved in multiple cross-team initiatives, across both Duo and Cisco as a whole.
You will help people throughout the world keep their computers safe, by integrating multiple security products. This will enable IT admins to gain a much more cohesive view of their devices and their posture.
In addition, you will help increase customer adoption by improving deploy time, and ease-of-use by a factor of 10.
This is a new product initiative with significant greenfield opportunities. You will help us develop, deploy, and maintain this service.
We emphasize software craftsmanship and apply it to our development practices. You will collaborate on technical direction, review code, and be an owner over the quality of our software.
Skills you have...
  • Leverage source control to maintain large projects
  • Built and maintained multiple web or native desktop applications

  • You're able to connect multiple products and teams to solve large problems
  • You seek, appreciate, and can act-upon user feedback
  • Write performant, maintainable, testable code

  • You are a user of cloud hosting services (like AWS or Azure)
  • You love automation - particularly CI/CD
  • You have used automated configuration tools like Ansible, Puppet, or Chef to deploy products.
  • Prior experience deploying cloud services, monitoring, alerting, and handling escalations
  • You have experience supporting a high-availability SaaS environment
  • You love working with Python
  • You are familiar with asynchronous programming patterns like in Node, .NET, and Python's asyncio and Twisted
  • You have knowledge of network security, encryption, authentication, and authorization
  • You have a solid understanding of security best-practices in web development

3 Reasons why you should apply...
  • You thrive having the autonomy to operate in a meaningful problem space solving real problems for real people.
  • You work best in teams of high-performers who are passionate about a common goal.
  • You revel in the opportunity to do it all; from desktop to web, to production deployment!

This job may not be for you if...
  • You only code alone and aren't willing to mentor and be mentored.
  • You lack a real passion for writing high-quality secure software that is backed by an equally mature approach to testing.
  • You stress under the ambiguity of a problem and default to others to provide you with the answers.
  • Your first instinct is to point out why something can't be done rather than focusing on what the customer problem is.
  • You tire at the thought of a steady, deliberate pace in both a product and company.

An Insider's view of Duo Security

How does your team reward individual success?

It can be as quick as some karma in Slack. We do team appreciations at the start of team meetings and Cisco has connected recognition which allows individuals to recognize the great work someone has done along with a monetary award, from $25 on up! We also celebrate life with team members, for example throwing a virtual baby shower!

Hector

Senior Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our cross-functional team of data scientists, software engineers, and designers, as well as product and security experts is building an intuitive adaptive authentication system. We’re moving past basic rule-based approaches to create a dynamic experience that people will love for keeping them secure while staying unobtrusive.

Brian

Head of Data Science and Engineering

What are some things you learned at the company?

Early on, I thought that success in the security industry was attributed solely to people's ideas or intellect. Since then, I've learned that the most important thing to have in any industry is empathy. Without empathy, you can't build a product that people will love or a place that people will want to work. Empathy is a foundation for success.

Olabode

Senior Data Scientist

What is your vision for the company?

My overall vision is to provide mechanisms for the business to build simple, safe and secure products that our customers and partners intrinsically trust. It is my belief that when we empower our teams and stakeholders to creatively work together instead of falling on process and procedure for the sake of it, our creativity opens to new heights.

Amanda

Head of Product Security

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success for us is taking the road less traveled to achieve better results, meaning we look for teammates who bring perspectives from all walks of life and who are not afraid to use their voice. We believe this combination results in good outcomes because we end up paving our path to success with a diversity of thought.
