Last month Webex helped nearly 600 million people meet, call, message, connect, discuss, and brainstorm. But there's more work to do. How will teams stay connected? How do we get more done with fewer meetings? How do we scale team culture when separated by a screen?

We're looking for a research lead to help shape the future of collaboration and imagine the workplace of the future.

Who you are:

  • An experienced, rigorous mixed methods researcher, skilled in both qualitative and quantitative methodologies with 10+ years of experience
  • A manager with 2+ years of experience leading inclusive teams, creating a sense of community, establishing psychological safety and supporting a growth mindset among researchers
  • An advocate and influencer with proven experience impacting product direction who can drive clarity across multi-disciplinary and cross-functional teams
  • An empath who understands how a few extra clicks can wreck a worker's productivity and acts as the voice of the user throughout the product development process

What you'll do:

  • Work with product teams and executives to develop research strategies to help define the future of collaboration
  • Manage and mentor a diverse, distributed, curious team of design researchers
  • Create efficient feedback loops between our customers and product teams using in-depth interviews, concept validation, moderated and unmoderated testing, surveys and workshops.
  • Proactively seek out ways to improve the experience of our customers and create new opportunities for our business.

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security 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, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication 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. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
