Automation Test Engineer at Cisco, Prague

Job Category: Automation Test Engineer at Cisco
Job Type: Full Time
Job Location: Prague

What You’ll Do

You will be developing tests against distributed physical, virtualized, and cloud environments. You are someone who enjoys owning the creation of automation solutions and tools, with the freedom to contribute to the technology decisions of the organization. You will have the opportunity to create test frameworks that ensure built-in quality exists from the first line of code to the last. We all enjoy building systems to run tests across all levels of the software from functional to integration to an end to end system. 

We want you to be as creative as possible to break complex systems and drive quality for our network security products. You will look to apply lean startup principles to validate the growth and value potential in all that we do. Technologies like Scala, Java, Golang, Python, React, Cucumber, Gherkin, Selenium, Docker, AWS and other Enterprise Commercial software may be knowledge areas where we start. Our destination will change based on what we learn. You will be an active learner and work with your team to deliver innovative security software solutions (not writing shelfware) for our customers.

Who You’ll Work With

The Stealthwatch Engineering organization is a highly collaborative team that is a part of the world’s largest security organization. You will work with energized and capable people that focus more on outcomes for our customers. You will have the opportunity to work in a diverse and thriving work culture that fosters team empowerment, self-organization and decision-making. 

You will be part of an established but fast-growing organization that continues to be a leader in the security industry. Our testers are key members of small Agile software development teams that work on security analytics and network monitoring tools that can function both on-prem, in the cloud or in a hybrid solution.

Who You Are

You are the key advocate and driver in guiding the team and organization on how to integrate quality practices and patterns. You work with others on the team to expand our quality view and culture. You are able to create test scenarios based upon user stories in partnership with team members. You actively research how the system is put together to improve testing strategies. You have the ability to automate test cases using Ruby, Javascript, and/or Python – both UI driven testing (Selenium) and API tests. You can work with leadership and other test team members to create and enforce quality standards. You posses an inner level of confidence that allows you to lead some days and follow others based on what is needed for the desired outcomes. You are an active learner on a journey with no set destination. You have the ability to derive quality metrics from the development environment.

Minimum Qualifications (decent knowledge – equivalent of two years of focused usage):

  • software testing experience with emphasis on automated testing
  • working in test environments that require networking and TCP/IP skills
  • working with the Linux OS
  • using test automation frameworks (e.g. Cucumber, Gherkin, Turnip, Junit, etc.)
  • using relational or other (noSQL) databases

Why Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we’re also a software company. And a security 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, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication 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. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
