Aside from being a master storyteller, you are
- Passionate about marketing
- Comfortable with the challenge of learning new things and working cross-functionally
- Finding simple and effective ways to communicate solutions to customers
- Taking a structured and proactive approach to developing messaging and positioning
- Highly proactive, skilled at independently initiating, leading and measuring projects

- At least 7+ years of total product marketing experience in enterprise
- At least 3 years of product marketing or product management experience in networking, or security.
- A proven track record (supported by samples of work) of creating content, incorporating messaging and storytelling, while distilling down complex concepts into simple succinct compelling messages for multiple audiences (sales, customer, partner)
- You possess strong writing and presentation skills- you build simple, clear content targeted for social, visual, written and multi-media consumption.
- You are comfortable presenting to small groups, internal partners, and external communities.
- You have a bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Business / Marketing or equivalent experience. MBA or master’s degree is a plus.
- Flexible to travel, once or twice a year – when it is safe to do so.
#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!
