VIEW JOBS 10/16/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-01-14T00:00 What You'll Do You will join a team crafting the future of cybersecurity. Cisco has a broad portfolio of cybersecurity products and solutions and we are looking for smart, fast, creative product marketers to help communicate the outcomes and benefits of the portfolio to customers and prospects. With a bias towards action, you will collaborate with sales, product managers and engineers to understand our technology and build compelling content to amplify the benefits of the entire Cisco security portfolio including network, endpoint, and cloud, and specifically as it relates to our Network Access Control produce Identity Services Engine (ISE). Our security products work together to tackle customer problems faster, they are coordinated with our networking portfolio to drive security into the fabric of our customers' networks and via open APIs, they collaborate with hundreds of technology partners to help integrate security response. You will act as an evangelist for cybersecurity within Cisco, training sellers, partners and fellow marketers on the benefits of Network Access Control as part of the portfolio. You will be the voice of the customer inside Cisco, crafting written material, visual assets videos and other deliverables to communicate the stories. Who You'll Work With You will work as part of a team that has had delivered outstanding results in helping align sales, engineers, and ISE product managers around the common purpose of making our customers safer through the deployment of multi-product security solutions built around NAC. You will be in the product marketing team and maintain a reciprocal working relationship with business development, sales, product management, channel sales, field marketing, and engineering. Who You Are You will be an expert product marketing manager with security knowledge who relishes a challenge. You will: * 3-5 yrs Product Marketing in the Security Space * Draw business benefits from technology * Engage through compelling communication * Understand Cisco security portfolio * Learn about new capabilities and customer problems * Collaborate with remote and geographically dispersed teams * Initiative and self-discipline to prioritize and lead multiple projects to completion * Strong analytical and problem-solving skills * Creative writing skills that are engaging, entertaining and detailed * Experience of working directly with customers in a consultative manner Why Cisco Cisco is making bold moves in cybersecurity. With over $5B in acquisitions in the last 4 years, we're investing heavily to secure the future. We work closely with security product managers, engineering, technical marketing, sales, and sales engineering teams focused on Cisco's security solutions. We securely connect everything: people, processes, data, and things. We innovate everywhere, taking bold risks to shape the technologies that give us smart cities, connected cars, and handheld hospitals. And we do it in style with unique personalities who aren't afraid to change the way the world works, lives, plays and learns. We are thought leaders, tech geeks, pop culture aficionados, and we even have a few purple haired rock stars. We celebrate the creativity and diversity that fuels our innovation. We are dreamers and we are doers. 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 the 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. Cisco Systems, Inc. San Jose CA
