Who We Are

Within Ciscos Security & Trust Organization (S&TO), our security engineering team develops and delivers foundational security, trustworthy technologies and related services.  This portfolio of technologies & services spans multiple security domains, including cryptography, software signing, hardware & software attestation, anti-counterfeit, device certificates, secrets & key management and cloud security technologies.

Broadly deployed across Ciscos offer portfolio & infrastructure, our security portfolio enables customer differentiating, pervasive security with a secure by default posture.

What You'll Do

Engaging in a highly cross-functional manner across both Ciscos security engineering, and business unit (BU) teams, the Product Manager will help define, guide and evangelize our portfolio of security technologies & services. Additionally, with security expertise and insights, as a Product Owner you will embrace responsibility for a security portfolio & roadmap, co-leading engineering teams, prioritizing activities, features and investments, aligned to BU client need and business value.

Specifically, within our portfolio of security technologies, you will own responsibility for our Digital Signing program, essential to Ciscos trusted software foundation, including the technology, tools, process and policy which underpin its reach and success.  You will help transform our signing program so that we provide one voice to our clients, clear technology guidance, unified service offerings, streamlined support, as well as policy compliance.  These responsibilities span multiple technology areas within our security team including signing services & tooling, and the hardware/firmware specific signing and encryption technologies which enable and facilitate broad deployment.

A portfolio owner with technical vision and business insights, you will help define and drive strategy, gap analysis, collateral, roadmaps and MVPs, as well as broad, systematic adoption of our security technologies & services.  You will collaborate and influence across Cisco business unit offer teams to enable broad adoption of our security portfolio, while gathering feedback and recommendations for features and future investments.

This critical, high visibility role blends security domain technical expertise, business acumen, and people influencing soft-skills.

Who You'll Work With

With keen interpersonal skills, the Product Manager will earn the trust and respect of our BU clients and collaborators, and influence via demonstrated expertise in security, software signing, applied cryptography, and secrets & key management.  Using a co-development model, approachable style, and a client-centric perspective, you will enable Software assurance & Digital Image Signing solutions, benefiting both Cisco offer teams and our end-customers.

Additionally, with your security and industry insights, you will help define, shape and drive the future direction of our Digital Signing security portfolio. You will partner closely with our development engineering team, and broadly across Ciscos security community and offer BU teams, as well as with a range of Ciscos security-sensitive customers. To accomplish your objectives, you will routinely engage from the individual contributor through executive levels.

We Are Cisco

#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. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!

We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment. Please contact us to request accommodation.
