OpenDNS is now part of Cisco Learn More



Cisco Umbrella is a great place to work

We’re not going to boast about our catered lunch 3x per week, the healthiest snacks in Silicon Valley, or our happy hours. We will boast about the fact that we are changing the face of network security and having fun doing it. We pride ourselves on being a meritocracy, where the best ideas win. We get the pleasure of working with the best and brightest in the industry— developing, marketing, and selling world-class security products with a focus on learning along the way. Here are some perks that we believe set us apart:

  • Tuition assistance

  • Volunteer time off (Time2Give)

  • Annual chili cook-off

  • Create your own club

  • Waffle Wednesday

  • Acme bread delivered fresh daily

  • All you can eat snacks

  • Beer fridge stocked by Healthy Spirits

  • Ben and Jerry’s ice cream truck in the summer

  • Board game nights

  • Lunch 3 x week

  • Lunchtime running club

  • Monthly birthday celebrations

  • Quarterly happy hours

  • Monthly volunteer events

  • Open Your Mind - Employee Development program

  • Ping pong table and tournaments

  • Selection of various breakfast items

  • Toastmasters club

  • Weekly Meetup group

  • Yoga on the rooftop

Some of our awesome benefits

  • Time Off to Relax
    We work our butts off. That’s why it’s important to get away to clear your mind from time to time. 20 days of PTO and 10 company holidays make that easy.
  • Insurance
    We’ve got you covered from your head to your toes. Medical, Dental and Vision.
  • Supplemental Insurance
    We’ve got you extra coverage if you need it, from your head to your toes.
  • Total Rewards
    In addition to competitive, performance-based pay, we offer annual bonuses, a stock incentive program, long-term savings packages, and an employee stock-purchase program. We also have an employee recognition program!

Chris Dorros - Infrastructure Engineering

On Security Engineering, my team and I help ensure our infrastructure and product security are rock solid! It’s been incredibly exciting to help grow Cisco Umbrella from scrappy startup to a market leading product. We get to work on some very innovative technology, but at the end of the day getting to work with the exceptional people at Cisco Umbrella is what makes me excited to show up each day.
