Business Development Manager

Cisco Systems Inc.
Seattle, WA 98104
 Cisco works with a wide range of partners to deliver value to our end customers. We need a strong business, technical and strategy leader to help us ensure that we identify the optimal way to integrate with our partners, as well as drive the appropriate legal and business negotiations to ensure success for all.

What You'll Do

You will be responsible for driving the lifecycle of integration of Cisco technology and products with key, high-value partners to deliver amazing experiences for our users. This starts with identifying the potential areas in which integration makes business sense and delivers meaningful value, then working through how this integration can happen with the appropriate peer Product Manager and Engineering owners, and finally structuring the agreements and go-to-market offers and programs to deliver the joint value to customers. Ultimately, by driving this type of integration, you are helping to amplify the value that the Cisco Collaboration portfolio is able to provide our customers.

Who You'll Work With

You will work with the teams throughout the Collaboration business, larger Cisco, and our partners in order to engage Subject Matter Experts to bring to life the ideas you identify. This is a group of experienced and talented Product Managers, Engineers, Marketing and Sales experts from across Cisco and our partners around the globe. Your specific team will be staffed by a blend of experienced and new-to-role Business Analysts and Strategy Planners.

Who You Are

You must be someone that loves hard problems and fast-paced innovation. At Cisco Collaboration, we work with such a wide variety of partners, customers and users that no two problems, or even days, are the same! Our day-to-day is a blend of innovation, measured risk taking and high-speed work. To be successful, you'll want to be an independent thinker as well as collaborator. You must be passionate about contributing to a larger picture, and helping to coordinate the chess pieces to make sure we play our best game. You must also be able to prioritize among multiple projects and be an exemplary communicator, standout colleague and strive for self-improvement.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • 7+ years of proven strategic thinking & leadership and market analysis experience, including management/leadership experience
  • Experience working in massively cross-team projects and with demanding customers and partners
  • Must demonstrate strong communication and team collaboration skills including conflict resolution
  • Experience with Product Management and/or Engineering desired, though not necessary

Additionally, a successful candidate for this role will possess the following skills:

  • to brainstorm the potential ways in which we can jointly create value for our customers
  • to ensure that legal contracts and other partnership processes are adhered to
  • Cross-team and company engagements can be difficult

#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 were old (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but were 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 cant 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? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
