WHAT YOU'LL DO
You will collaborate on the creation of our functional safety strategy as well as setting the tone for our functional safety culture. You will actively participate in systems engineering at our Austin site and mentor in-house hardware designers, while owning the team's compliance with functional safety standards. You will shepherd products through safety compliance testing. Your efforts will enable the team to ship the next generation Cisco DC microgrid technologies by ensuring their compliance with applicable functional safety standards. Most importantly, your innovations will directly impact the Common Hardware Group's contribution to Cisco's NetZero goals by developing core technologies that will get re-used throughout Cisco's portfolio.
WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH
You'll be working with a dedicated team that has delivered groundbreaking products such as Catalyst 9200 and 9300 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Ethernet Switches and Catalyst 9300 StackPower. This team includes both hardware and embedded developers who have helped Cisco ship millions of units worldwide to connect and power networks. You will have guidance from the field via sales and marketing to help guide your design. You will also work with our award-winning supply chain and manufacturing teams to ensure a smooth product launch.
WHO YOU ARE
You have the experience or the strong desire to grow your ability to:
Design reliable, manufacturable hardware circuits from scratch while following functional safety design process
Collaborate with software teams
Carefully plan, document, and supervise the implementation of functional safety requirements
Perform Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA).
Strongly advocate for safety above all else, even when it places the delivery schedule at risk
Communicate effectively with teams in an office-first hybrid work environment, through a variety of both online and offline collaboration methods as appropriate for the challenge at hand
For this senior design role the minimum qualifications are:
Proven experience in functional safety compliance, with experience designing hardware and software for a product that follows with at least one of the following standards: IEC 61508, ISO 26262, EN 50128, ISO/IEC 62304, IEC 62061, IEC 60880, ISO 13849, MIL-STD-1629A, IEC 61025, IEC 60812.
BSEE and at least 8 years of applicable work experience OR an MSEE and at least 4 years of applicable work experience
Bonus points for experience with functional safety in any of the following contexts:
Power over Ethernet (PoE) or similar remote powering systems
Systems reliant on wireline networking communications technologies such as IEEE 802.3 Ethernet or related technologies like Power Line Communications (PLC)
AC and DC building-scale powering technologies and their related safety subsystems, (i.e. Circuit Breakers, Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI), Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI), etc.)
#WeAreCisco. We are all unique, but collectively we bring our talents to work as a team, to develop innovative technology and power a more inclusive, digital future for everyone. How do we do it? Well, for starters - with people like you!
Nearly every internet connection around the world touches Cisco. We're the Internet's optimists. Our technology makes sure the data travelling at light speed across connections does so securely, yet it's not what we make but what we make happen which marks us out. We're helping those who work in the health service to connect with patients and each other; schools, colleges and universities to teach in even the most challenging of times. We're helping businesses of all shapes and size to connect with their employees and customers in new ways, providing people with access to the digital skills they need and connecting the most remote parts of the world - whether through 5G, or otherwise.
We tackle whatever challenges come our way. We have each other's backs, we recognize our accomplishments, and we grow together. We celebrate and support one another - from big and small things in life to big career moments. And giving back is in our DNA (we get 10 days off each year to do just that).
We know that powering an inclusive future starts with us. Because without diversity and a dedication to equality, there is no moving forward. Our 30 Inclusive Communities, that bring people together around commonalities or passions, are leading the way. Together we're committed to learning, listening, caring for our communities, whilst supporting the most vulnerable with a collective effort to make this world a better place either with technology, or through our actions.
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! #WeAreCisco
