Everything is converging on the Internet, making networked connections more significant 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

Our Enterprise sales organization seeks a seasoned and motivated Technical Solutions Architect to focus on Cisco's industry-leading Nexus 3K/9K, NCS 5500, Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), Cisco Network Assurance Engine (CNAE), and Tetration products. You'll help transform our to our Enterprise customers' data center infrastructure and help simplify their operational challenges.

The Enterprise segment is dynamic and fast paced. The segment continues to grow quickly, and Cisco's new 400G offerings will change the game for our customers. Only Cisco's data center portfolio can provide the full spectrum of unparalleled performance, automation, visibility, security and network assurance needed to succeed in the Enterprise space.

Who You'll Work With

Our team works with our product engineers and marketing, our sales force, and our partners. We help provide field input and direction into engineering, and drive product knowledge out to the field. We help our sales force, partners, and customers stay up to date on the latest product improvements, as well as understand the value, and unique advantages that come with the most complete and advanced networking products in the industry.

Who You Are

You know Data Centers, and you know what it takes to help customers achieve their business needs. You're seasoned with customer-facing presales engagements, and you easily explain technical concepts and subjects to a variety of audience levels with varied technical backgrounds, at the same time articulating the business value of those technical topics. Your ability to communicate effectively helps you effectively command a confidence in the technology, and help you influence others.

Our minimum requirements for this role:

  • 5+ years of technical presales experience.
  • Working knowledge of Data Center Networking environments
  • Ability to travel in order to meet client demands required.
  • Ensure success of customer proof-of-concepts (POCs).
  • Flexible, dependable, and capable of quickly learning new products and technologies.
  • Ability to motivate, train and conduct seminars to increase Data Center Networking revenues.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication, listening, negotiation and presentation skills.
  • Must be a self-starter effective in working independently and in a team setting.
  • 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.
