Product Manager Firestarter|Network Security|Bangalore

Cisco Systems Inc.
Bengaluru, KA 560002

What You'll Do

The team youll be joining is the Cisco NGFW Firestarter Product Management Team, which is part of Ciscos Security Business Group. In Firestarter, we work on enabling short-term revenue by working with sales to remove obstacles in deals.

Were driven, on point, tenacious, and steadfast. Its an outstanding opportunity to work with a world-class team in a fast-growing results-oriented environment while demonstrating one of the largest portfolios of security technologies to build and deliver new offerings.

Who You'll Work With

Have you ever been characterized as too pushy, too aggressive a product manager or an SE? If you smiled and nodded to that, this may be a job for you. Your first concern is winning deals and bringing in revenue. You are technical in nature (background in sales engineering or support is no drawback),

and known as a problem solver and solution finder.

You not only listen well, you cut through and understand the problems. In your current role, you helped save many a deal through

creative thinking, transparent communication, relentless hustle

, and detailed mentorship to engineering and sales alike. You dont believe in unsolvable problems, and where others say it cant be done you say let me figure out what we can do. What makes you a true product management super hero in this role is your keen sense for making business happen. You couple technical hacking with commercial hacking, determining discounts, purchase plans, interim solutions; always looking at your top line and your bottom line.

This role is fantastic for a seasoned negotiator, tenacious product manager looking to put business and revenue impact on his or her resume. You will live where the rubber meets the road: between the sales and engineering, with direct access to customers. You will communicate in feature business cases, keep a well-ordered stack ranked backlog, and build a track record of delivering super-targeted well-defined features that directly impact deals.

If this sounds like you come join us!

Who You Are

  • 5+ years in the network security industry Shown success in negotiating in a widely decentralized and multicultural environment
  • Demonstrated customer-centric requirement gathering, passionate about deal enablement
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, including data presentation, ability to present results across the organization

Why Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is outstanding, 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, ambitious steps, and take the 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!
