 Why Cisco

Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what you need and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals. Cisco DNA is the open, software-driven platform that turns that vision into reality. Virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, all in one architecture.

Cisco is once again pioneering the next age in networking. Today, we are building teams that are expanding our technology solutions in the mobile, cloud, security, IT, and big data spaces, including software and consulting services. As Cisco delivers the network that powers the Internet, we are connecting the unconnected. Imagine creating unprecedented disruption.

We connect everything - people, process, data and things. We innovate everywhere to create fresh ideas and possibilities. We make a meaningful difference that will benefit everyone - our people, our customers and the world around us.

Our technology changes the way the world works, lives, plays and learns. But our edge doesn't come from technology. It comes from our people. We're looking for the kind of people who take smart risks, thrive in diverse environments, inspire their colleagues, and are committed to having an impact on the world. Whether you create technology solutions that redefine business or build connections that strengthen the community, you can make it happen at Cisco!
