What You'll Do

We need a rain maker who identifies and drives net-new opportunities for Cisco within the Education vertical market. Using the resources Cisco brings to the market, you will find new decision makers, position our solutions and offerings, and connect non-IT decision makers with our account teams.  These relationships and opportunities will result in multi-million dollar deals for Cisco and a broader portfolio of wins for you.

You'll be workign in high-potential strategic and premier accounts, driving impact through key thought-leadership activities, supporting our account teams in having new executive relationships, and leading and managing key initiatives for the vertical.  You'll have the opportunity to be a subject-matter expert, uncover new best practices, and share successes both internally and externally.

Who You'll Work With
You'll be working with a team of incredibly passionate and collaborative education advisors who share your values and do what you do.  All of you are comfortable having non-IT executive conversations and finding new opportunities within our accounts.


Who You Are
You are an innovative leader with a strong track record of results: Identifying new opportunities where there otherwise were none and helping to grow and expand our business.  You're a subject-matter expert, a business development leader, and a program manager and driver.  You're detail oriented and a clear and very concise communicator.

At a minimum, you'll need to have a BA/BS with ten years of experience in business development and expertise in the education market.  Ideally, you have a strong understanding of Cisco and can hit the ground running.  You're not intimidated by a goal to deliver $30M in net-new pipeline from your engagements and programs.
