In addition to the broader Product Management team, you will need to collaborate effectively with sales, engineering, program management and customer success teams. This position is ideal for someone with strong customer-facing experience, while also effective in coordinating with engineering teams and representing the customer and their requirements.

We are seeking a Product Management leader to lead a geographically distributed team of product managers responsible for Ciscos SD-WAN software strategy, roadmap prioritization and enablement. In this role, you are in the unique position of managing and shaping the software strategy for a product portfolio that includes both Viptela platforms and Cisco's leading ISR/ASR and Catalyst 8K platforms. This is an opportunity for a product manager with proven effective leadership to drive results for one of Ciscos most exciting technologies.

#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!
