What you’ll do: 

  • Handle the development of technical content and make content decisions for assigned programs 

  • Help to provide and maintain the “creative vision” of web programs by resolving and implementing the program’s technical copy and architecture 

  • Help to develop and implement audiences for communications, delivering the right content, at the right time, to the right person, in the right way demonstrating new/innovative automation wherever possible 

  • Use data analytics to monitor, analyze and measure efficiency of digital efforts to supervise and ensure efficient impact

  • Stay up to date on points of view from leading industry analysts and key influencers in the market 

We are seeking high energy and qualified candidates who possess the following skills and experience

  • Interest in working with development organizations, sales, marketing, and channel teams 

Who you'll work with: 

You will work cross functionally with the Customer Experience, Sales, Marketing, and IT organizations, developing and implementing technical content that will support the customer in successful implementation and use of Cisco products.  

#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!
