Manager, Product Licensing and Operations

San Jose, CA 95113

Ciscos Security Portfolio has grown organically over many years and is comprised of a mixture of hardware, software, subscription and SaaS options. In addition, it is growing at a fast pace, a pace that requires an amazing Product Operations Manager to help us meet our goals!

With our complex portfolio we need you to help reduce resistance so that our growth can be maintained and increased.

The Manager, Product and Licensing Operations for the Security Business Group will be responsible for driving a simplification process across the Security product portfolio. They will be looking at the end-to-end process for pricing, configuring, quoting, selling and transacting our products and looking for ways to simplify, reduce time from order to entitlement and activation for customers, and making the purchase of additional technologies as easy as possible.

This will be both an individual contributor and management role, with responsibilities ranging from policy development and implementation, to relationship and cross-departmental project management, as well as day-to-day product and licensing operations.

The top three initial priorities for the role are:

  1. Hire the team and implement a centralized product operations function.
  2. Plan for and execute on a transition from Term and Content to Subscription Billing Platform for all subscriptions.
  3. Recommend and execute on a plan for simplifying offers, including consolidation of pricing metrics, pricing bands, and other areas of complexity in offers.

Your experience:

  • Deep understanding for quote-to-cash business system requirements for hardware, perpetual and subscription software, SaaS delivered offerings.
  • Expertise in working with engineering and cross-functional teams in a high technology company.
  • Experience with software licensing and entitlement.
  • Successful execution of multi-stage, complex projects.
  • Experience managing distributed teams.
  • Experience in technology product management, with background in security strongly preferred.

We Are Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Heres how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security company. A blockchain company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do you cant 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, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool.
