Who You’ll Work With
The Customer Success Executive (CSE) role is a highly visible, strategic leadership role within Cisco’s Customer Experience (CX) organization. Join Cisco's Customer Experience (CX) team, a driving force behind our transition to a software and subscription-based business model. Partner with customer leaders, internal teams, and Cisco partners to redefine what customer success looks like in the digital age. 

What You’ll Do

Your primary focus will be to accelerate customer success. Key responsibilities include:

  • Strengthen Customer Relationships: Establish trust-based relationships with key customer contacts at multiple levels.
  • Customer Insight: Deeply understand customer business objectives, challenges, and the landscape they operate in.
  • Orchestrate the Journey: Coordinate Cisco Services, partners, and customer teams to create a seamless path to value realization.
  • Sentiment & Escalation Management: Address and resolve customer issues, ensuring a positive experience and clear communication.
  • Strategy & Alignment: Collaborate with Sales to develop customer success plans that align with both Cisco and customer priorities.

Who You Are
We're looking for someone who excels in:

  • Customer-Centric Approach: Consistent track record in driving customer success, adoption renewal and recurring revenue growth, particularly in a SaaS environment.
  • Relationship Management: Strong interpersonal skills to build and sustain relationships across various stakeholders.
  • Strategic & Tactical Balance: Ability to develop high-level strategies while also executing plans to fruition.
  • Team Leadership: Expertise in guiding cross-functional teams for positive customer engagement.
  • Effective Communication: Ability to articulate complex ideas in a relatable way to a variety of audiences.

Why 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 we’re “old” (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we’re 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 can’t 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? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That’s cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us! 

Message to applicants applying to work in the U.S. and/or Canada:

When available, the salary range posted for this position reflects the projected hiring range for new hire, full-time salaries in U.S. and/or Canada locations, not including equity or benefits. For non-sales roles the hiring ranges reflect base salary only; employees are also eligible to receive annual bonuses. Hiring ranges for sales positions include base and incentive compensation target. Individual pay is determined by the candidate's hiring location and additional factors, including but not limited to skillset, experience, and relevant education, certifications, or training. Applicants may not be eligible for the full salary range based on their U.S. or Canada hiring location. The recruiter can share more details about compensation for the role in your location during the hiring process.

U.S. employees have access to quality medical, dental and vision insurance, a 401(k) plan with a Cisco matching contribution, short and long-term disability coverage, basic life insurance and numerous wellbeing offerings. Employees receive up to twelve paid holidays per calendar year, which includes one floating holiday, plus a day off for their birthday. Employees accrue up to 20 days of Paid Time Off (PTO) each year and have access to paid time away to deal with critical or emergency issues without tapping into their PTO. We offer additional paid time to volunteer and give back to the community. Employees are also able to purchase company stock through our Employee Stock Purchase Program.

Employees on sales plans earn performance-based incentive pay on top of their base salary, which is split between quota and non-quota components. For quota-based incentive pay, Cisco pays at the standard rate of 1% of incentive target for each 1% revenue attainment against the quota up to 100%. Once performance exceeds 100% quota attainment, incentive rates may increase up to five times the standard rate with no cap on incentive compensation. For non-quota-based sales performance elements such as strategic sales objectives, Cisco may pay up to 125% of target. Cisco sales plans do not have a minimum threshold of performance for sales incentive compensation to be paid.
