What Youll Do

You're a Senior Product Manager and have a real passion for solving customers problems. You thrive in a fast-paced environment, and you look forward to joining a collaborative team of high-caliber experts. Youre not just looking for a job, youre looking for a creative team where you can make a large impact. Youre ambitious and set high expectations for yourself, you take ownership and sweat the small stuff. You flourish with constructive feedback, you insist that facts drive decisions, and you deliver results that matter.

  • Own a constantly-groomed roadmap and work in an Agile process in partnership with Engineering and management

  • Act and think independently, track and analyze all components of the platform, and manage customers engagements
  • Mentor a team of junior product managers and technical marketing engineers

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.
