The Cisco Security Management User Experience team helps design elegant, powerful, useful, and intuitive interfaces to Cisco security products to help customers manage, configure, and maintain Cisco Security solutions. The role of the interaction designer is to design, test, and specify requirements for user interfaces and user interaction models.

Design work will focus on (but is not limited to) graphical user interfaces for client applications.

Primary Responsibilities:

• Prepare user interface specification documents consisting of wireframes, conceptual models, process flows, navigational maps, mockups, and/or interaction flow diagrams.

• Synthesize input from product management, engineering, quality assurance, customer support, systems engineers, customers, and other interaction designers to design new features and refine and extend existing features.

• Provide design leadership for one of Cisco's Security Management products including the development of design specifications for complex feature development.

• Contribute to, define, and enforce a user interface style guide that will be the foundation for all future security management products.

• The ideal candidate will have strong visual design skills and experience rapidly prototyping visual designs for products that implement complex policies.

• 3+ years in a senior interaction design, user interface design, human factors engineering, or information architect position.

• Proven track record developing, delivering, and documenting high-quality user interface designs for technically complex applications. Knowledge of security management and system administration tools is a definite plus.

• Exceptional writing and communication skills.

• An understanding of network security products, Internet standards and enterprise networking topologies is highly desirable.
