What You’ll Do
The old Republic is gone, the Empire is defeated, but the New Republic still faces tremendous challenges. The Force is strong with Cisco as we become a software company, an AI company, a cloud company, a security company - all powered by our network.  Will you be the one to take up your light saber to defend against Siths, the New Order, and all others that would challenge the path of the light? With your knowledge of the Force, you will provide sound advice to the younglings and potential new recruits to the Jedi Order.

Who You’ll Work With
Work with the best people, you will. This IS the culture you’re looking for. You can join such industry leaders as Yoda and Mace Windu to capture the latest market transition of Force of Things (FoT). 

Who You Are
You’ve got experience maintaining intergalactic peace and prosperity through use of the Force to make decisions based on wisdom. You have a desire to resolve conflict through peaceful methods only utilizing Jedi skills for self-defense. You have a thorough knowledge of the galaxy and you love to tinker (on droids, pod racers, or trash compactors). You enjoy sharing your knowledge and providing training to Jedis still in their apprenticeships.

Our minimum requirements for this role:
  • Completed the five Jedi trials.
  • Trained at the Jedi Academy of Coruscant.
  • You have the ability to influence people and move things (with your mind).
  • Built your own lightsaber from Kyber crystals harvested on your own.
  • Minimum midi-chlorian count of 7,000 (required by the council to train).

Why Cisco?
We embrace the Force, and while we may have been around since the original trilogy, we’re not Obi-Wan’s Cisco any more. We invented the network – and even THAT uses the Force to adapt, predict, learn and protect.

But we’re not just droids. We’re sentient beings, from all planets and all walks of life. You can’t bring peace to the universe without working together in a culture of civility and hope. We close our eyes and let the Force guide us as we take risks – we do or do not. There is no try. Never tell us the odds.

Chewbacca hair? Don’t care. Tattoos featuring the rebel alliance symbol? Rock your ink. Star Wars fan? You’ll fit right in. Be you, with us. #WeAreCisco

As much as we would love to offer a paying job to all you amazing Jedi Knights, the above is not a real paying role at Cisco. However we are always looking for fantastic talent of the humankind, and we are hiring here on Earth. Thank you and May the 4th be with you!
