Cisco UI/UX Designer - Duo Security in Austin, Texas

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 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.

Our team is our superpower. We run the spectrum from artists to analysts, low-key to high-energy, and bring together a diversity of skill sets, experiences, and perspectives to solve what we consider to be the world's most pressing geopolitical challenge — redefining the security industry as we know it. Together we build solutions that are easy, effective, trustworthy, and enduring. And that’s why we are the most loved and trusted company in security.

About the team...

Our team is creating a meaningful impact in a world of data breaches and hacked passwords. We also have a lot of fun doing it. We love learning from our customers through our research practice. Our project work and design systems span mobile and web interfaces. The team is highly collaborative and works closely with engineers and product managers. We are at an exciting moment in our growth. Now, as part of Cisco (Duo was recently acquired), we have the resources and reach of a global company while we keep our super fun culture.

The modern workforce is more mobile than ever before. Users and devices can connect from anywhere — so companies must protect them everywhere. A zero-trust security model establishes trust in users and devices through authentication and continuous monitoring of each access attempt, with custom security policies that protect every application.

The Duo Policy team is on a mission to support our customers zero trust needs by ensuring they are able to define and set up policies easily and effectively.

Security doesn’t have to be scary or complex. Design is at the core of Duo's mission: Democratize security by making it simple, effective, and easy to use.
