About the job
Cisco's Workforce Experience Design team is on a mission to create the best work experience, leading with human-centered design, to create an engaged and productive environment for all Cisconians. We strive to enable every employee to be at their best every day, from removing the barriers to collaboration to discovering new connections and communities. We are a global leader in technology, networking, and innovation, and we believe that helping our customers and partners begins with helping ourselves!
As a UX/Product Design Lead, you'll be defining key initiatives and roadmaps for our new design team and ensuring execution through best-in-class practices. As an individual contributor, you will help manage the portfolio of solutions we provide to Cisconians; prioritizing delivery of capabilities and experiences that resolve problems, fulfill employee needs, and enable success. You will collaborate and consult with leadership and stakeholders, offering guidance and suggestions, and challenging proposed solutions that fail to align with our core mission and values. You will ensure the design work for prioritized solutions is effective and staffed efficiently in addition to supporting leadership in investigation, communications, and approaches. You will ensure design team excellence through implementing initiatives based upon team needs, metrics planning and review, training and mentoring, building community, interceding as needed on key projects, and demonstrating practice excellence. You'll mentor and lead other designers in their craft, and help the team continuously learn and grow!What You'll Do:
#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 we're "old" (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we're 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 can't 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? Don't care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That's cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
