Who You'll Work With

We are building a best-in-class team of hardworking, results-oriented problem solvers with the aim of enabling better data-driven decisions and thereby building business impact. We operate as a startup: work hard, learn every single day, focus on doing measurable and impactful work; and have lots of fun along the way.

Who You Are

You thrive in a multi-tasking, strategic, forward-thinking role where governance and policy thinking are always top of mind. You bring the capability to look beyond today and bring that vision of tomorrow into a roadmap. You have superb communication skills and the ability to lead and influence across all levels of the organization.

  • Ability to implement user-friendly processes to provision appropriate access to various teams and individuals, with a balance in data privacy and security, regulation compliance, and enabling efficient product development based on key learnings from prior experience within, or in partnership with, these critical functions
  • Experience in transitioning a team from Waterfall to Agile framework and owning the success metrics for delivery.
  • Communicate and coordinate with multi-functional internal partners to embed data governance controls and policies across the enterprise.
  • Ability to communicate at all levels with utmost efficiency, both written and verbal, with technical and non-technical, multi-functional teams

We Are Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Heres how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do you cant 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, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool.
