Why Cisco?

#WeAreCisco. We are all unique, but collectively we bring our talents to work as a team, to develop innovative technology and power a more inclusive, digital future for everyone. How do we do it? Well, for starters with people like you!

Nearly every internet connection around the world touches Cisco. Were the Internets optimists. Our technology makes sure the data traveling at light speed across connections does so securely, yet its not what we make but what we make happen which marks us out. Were helping those who work in the health service to connect with patients and each other; schools, colleges, and universities to teach in even the most challenging of times. Were helping businesses of all shapes and sizes to connect with their employees and customers in new ways, providing people with access to the digital skills they need and connecting the most remote parts of the world whether through 5G, or otherwise.

We tackle whatever challenges come our way. We have each others backs, we recognize our accomplishments, and we grow together. We celebrate and support one another from big and small things in life to big career moments. And giving back is in our DNA (we get 10 days off each year to do just that).

We know that powering an inclusive future starts with us. Because without diversity and a dedication to equality, there is no moving forward. Our 30 Inclusive Communities, that bring people together around commonalities or passions, are leading the way. Together were committed to learning, listening, caring for our communities, whilst supporting the most vulnerable with a collective effort to make this world a better place either with technology, or through our actions.

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! #WeAreCisco
