Innovation Senior Manager, Data & Analytics

Cisco Systems Inc.
San Jose, CA 95113

What You'll Do

We need a forward-thinking team player who can drive innovation at Cisco in data, analytics, and artificial intelligence, to continuously improve the technologies, tools, and approaches we use, to identify the most impactful use cases for these technologies, and to help Cisco continue to pivot towards new, data-first operating models that focus on software, subscriptions, and services.

You will use your innovation mindset and an iterative approach to craft the evolution of Cisco's operating models based on developing a detailed understanding of both the approaches of leading players and winning formulas of other successful business model transformers in the industry, using your experience from a leading SaaS business. You will use your problem-solving and communications skills internally at Cisco to build a network of internal partners across operating units, to identify their needs and opportunities, and to help them get to the next level of decision-making based on data. You will build on your professional network in and beyond Silicon Valley to connect with startups, venture capitalists, universities, leading vendors, and other corporates; identify the best governance, emerging technologies, and potential partners for Cisco; and work towards incubating these at Cisco hand in hand with your Cisco-internal network of partners.

Who You'll Work With

You will join Cisco's Data & Analytics Office, a team of high-caliber professionals passionate about data and analytics, and excited to help Cisco transition to an increasingly strong culture of data-directed decision-making.

Who You Are

You are an entrepreneur at heart, passionate about technology and innovation. You are a structured problem solver who can communicate clearly, concisely, and in simple terms. You ask "why" to understand the root cause. You put structure to your thinking. You make simple the complex. You are willing to take risks to explore new opportunities and know how to validate the potential and feasibility quickly. You love to work in multi-functional teams. You can navigate a large corporation and get others passionate about following your lead.

Our Minimum Requirements for this Role are:

  • BS/BA, 8+ years total experience with two years or more spent at a top management consulting firm.
  • You have had significant exposure to a SaaS business.
  • You have, at minimum, a basic understanding of enterprise data, analytics, and artificial intelligence.

We Are Cisco

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

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security 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 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, 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? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool.
