What You'll Do

Here at Cisco, you will be empowered to make a difference, establish a reputation, and position yourself for continued growth. This role is focused on driving a technical strategy and development for IoT hardware and software products - on prem and in public/private cloud. The primary project responsibilities will be on driving full stack OT solutions for asset tracking and fleet management.

The primary functions of this key leadership position are to partner with technical stakeholders within both engineering, product management and field teams. You will lead the technology direction, facilitate key technical decision points, and take the architecture specifications into working engineering outcomes.

We are looking for an individual to balance strategic process thinking and "rolling up their sleeves" to problem solve. A successful candidate must be able to challenge the status quo by demonstrating a willingness to re-invent current processes and embrace change as a challenge.

A "go-getter" approach.

  • Collaborate with multiple engineering groups in Cisco networking, security and mobile wireless, who are responsible for developing the infrastructure and products that define a complete IoT solution.
  • Align technology to business strategy, and actively drive a technical direction throughout the organization

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.
