Why you'll love Cisco

We change the World, you will become passionate about your employer and the brand you represent. Everything is converging on the Internet, making networked connections more meaningful than ever before in our lives. Our employees' groundbreaking ideas impact everything. Here, that means we take creative ideas from the drawing board to dynamic solutions that have real world impact. You'll collaborate with Cisco leaders, partner with mentors, and develop incredible relationships with colleagues who share your interest in connecting the unconnected. You'll be part a team that cares about its customers, enjoys having fun, and you'll take part in changing the lives of those in our local communities. Come prepared to be encouraged and inspired.

What You'll Do

As a Project Manager in the CX Global Enterprise Services (GES) organization, you will be responsible for Transaction and Subscription Projects whose lifecycle can span weeks or years. The Project Manager will manage the execution of network technology consulting projects for Cisco strategic accounts, with focus in areas such as network migration, design, and transformation. The Project Manager will provide leadership to diverse and talented project teams during the execution phase of consulting projects in all technologies with focus often around Data Center, Security, Wireless, Collaboration, and/or Route/Switch. The position requires customer obsession with extensive partnership with clients to understand business objectives, delivery execution, and management of projects to ensure quality, within scope, on-time, on-budget completion. Resource may be responsible for multiple, concurrent, large-scale Enterprise projects. Customers will be geographically dispersed throughout the Southern US and some travel may be required.

Who You'll Work With

Are you ready for the next wave? Here, you'll be managing large or strategic, or multiple large deployments for our enterprise customers while you work hand in hand with some of the brightest people in Cisco.

These projects utilize existing or new Cisco technologies, multiple third party vendors and cross multiple functions, have high organization visibility and may include multiple locations or Regions. You will be managing multiple critical projects in tight time frames for mission critical network deployments for some of Cisco's most exciting customers.

Who You Are

You manage customer-facing network technology (design, implementation and support) projects for Cisco customers. You apply your Project Management Profession (PMP) certified knowledge and experience to ensure high customer satisfaction fulfilling our customers' requirements. All five project processes are leveraged to ensure predictable and successful outcomes. You'll identify and resolve complex problems that impact strategic direction for our customer and Cisco. You will work with a high level of network expertise across multiple organizations. Independence and a "take-charge" approach are welcomed as our customer expects the best from Cisco.

  • We Are Cisco

    #WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Here's how we do it.

    We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we're "old" (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but we're also a software company. And a security company. A blockchain company. An AI/Machine Learning 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, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment 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.
