What You'll Do

As Director, Data Strategy and Science, you will lead a global, thirty-five-person team to produce business insights that inform product and sales decisions for Cisco’s $5B collaboration portfolio.

Your team prepares data from dozens of sources including financial, customer, product usage, and ticketing systems. They ensure quality and integrity, develop Tableau workbooks, and deploy custom portals. Predictive analytics and enabling easier ad hoc analysis are needed. It’s going to be messy, but data architecture is going to be high on your list.

Who You'll Work With

Our DS2 team has been in place for a few years. Most of the team is in San Jose with the remainder in Asia. It’s a great group who work together well and trust each other. In many cases, they’re a service team to stakeholders throughout the organization. You’re going to change that (to some degree) by providing a more consultative approach.

This means you’ll also be flexing your business muscles and building your own relationships across business units (with VP/GMs and their operations leads), customer success, sales, finance, and IT. An ability to prioritize requests and operate transparently will serve you well.

Who You Are

You have demonstrated that you occupy the small intersection in the Venn diagram of getting things done and large organizations.

Qualified candidates will aim high and shoot straight; meaning you are strategic in your vision and tactical in your delivery. Candidates will also:

  • have deep domain knowledge in systems, data governance, and BI
  • be a recognized expert in the field (published, presented at conferences, etc.)
  • have led businesses to leverage evolving best practices
  • have managed a team of managers
