What You'll Do
You will be part of Corporate Development, Cisco’s strategic organization that leads Cisco’s venture arm, Cisco Investments, as well as global M&A.

We currently have an active portfolio of $2B with over 80 direct investments around the world, and we also hold Limited Partner positions in over 35 funds globally. Having invested in over 200 companies and completed more than 180 acquisitions, the team has unparalleled experience and visibility across the tech industry and Cisco’s leadership team. The role will be part of the Datacenter team, which is focused on the transition occurring in the enterprise datacenter, driven by the evolution of the software defined datacenter and the complexity of a hybrid/multi cloud environment.  In executing against that strategy, the team has recently made investments in startups such as Cohesity, Datos.IO, Springpath & Guardicore.
