About us

Cisco enables people to make powerful connections--whether in business, education, philanthropy, or creativity. Cisco hardware, software, and service offerings are used to create the Internet solutions that make networks possible--providing easy access to information anywhere, at any time. We also ensure that our employees have the tools they need to help our customers achieve their goals and shape the future of work.

The team in Ireland possess a wide variety of skills across many of our product offerings which responsibilities across our Dublin and Galway sites including cloud software development, user experience, product management, marketing, program management and sales. It makes for an eclectic mix of personalities and life perspectives! We have visionaries and engineers sitting along artists, entrepreneurs and organisers. It creates a unique culture where innovation and fun are the underlying foundations which bring us together in everything we do, whether that be developing software which is central to Cisco's $4.5Billion Webex Collaboration business, organising Sports and Social parties and events or working on Charity Drives with the local community.

What employees say

"It's obvious to me from day one that everyone here really enjoys being a part of the Cisco family. There’s something here for everyone, and Webex Teams is able facilitate that flawlessly. There’s a sense of transparency in this organisation that makes people at every level feel important and indispensable. Cisco prioritises the work life balance of its employees, that was something I found out quickly. They make sure that their employees can get their work done while enjoying a fulfilled and happy life. This is also true when it comes to the bad days. Sometimes things happen outside of work and you’re just not in the right frame of mind to be productive. You’re given the time you need to look after yourself, no questions asked. "  - Mary B.

What defines us

Culture isn’t merely a catchphrase at Cisco; it’s woven into everything we do. How and why we celebrate, for example. We plan a variety of parties and events each year to give employees meaningful occasions to engage with each other away from desks, deadlines, and to-do lists. Our events focus on specific themes, successes, and Moments that Matter - creating ways for employees to deepen connections and even friendships, with colleagues across the company. Above all, they foster unity, camaraderie, and a relaxed environment for our employees to have fun and be themselves. 

Cisco encourages employees to find new limits and challenge our boundaries. Through programs like our Stretch Assignments (where you can learn and grow new skills by helping other teams) taking bold steps will not only help you to grow but will likely help Cisco to grow too. We don’t believe in just daydreaming about what’s possible – we believe in boldly chasing those dreams down and making them a reality too.

What inspires us

At Cisco we are a company with heart, dedicated to giving back to our community and those in need – and you will have 5 extra days (separate from your paid time off) to do so each calendar year! This is a great opportunity to step away from the computer, and actively help your community in ways you are most passionate. 

Be Amazing community events are site specific events created and delivered locally. The CLB provides each of our sites with their own budget and latitude to create fun events in whatever way they think will engage employees the best. 

From healthcare options, to your birthday off, to paid family time off to performance management focused on development, Cisco emphasises  a culture that provides the employees with an innovative experience, where they continuously learn, live their passions and can be their best selves.

Career and jobs

Application tips

At Cisco, we believe fit is less about the right job and more about the right culture. It takes a lot of work and thoughtful, upfront exploration on both sides to find the right match for a workplace’s culture. The interview process is an important opportunity for our hiring managers, their teams, and the candidates to evaluate their chemistry. But at Cisco, what sets us apart for job seekers is our emphasis on getting to know them. 

We want candidates to know we’re proud of our people, we love to show it, and we want to bring on others who can match and continue our energy. We’re diverse creative thinkers who work together every day to bring innovative projects to life, and add life to our teams. So when it comes to building those teams, the candidates who stand out to us care deeply about doing their best work every day and, most important, doing that great work together.  When we share the same goals, motivation is the easy part. 

Our great workplace

Cisco is the worldwide leader in IT, networking and cybersecurity solutions. We help companies of all sizes transform how people connect, communicate and work.

As Cisco is global, so are most of our teams. It is not unusual to work with someone from another country or have your team based in different locations. The good news is that you will also feel incredibly connected (thanks to our collaboration tools like Webex) and you’ll never miss a beat. From meetings and brainstorming sessions to virtual coffees or lunches – we are committed to staying connected and getting to know each other and celebrate our different nationalities, languages, and cultures.  

We have Leaders who never micromanage – Everyone is aware of the company goals and each team and individual knows what must be done to help achieve them. We’re also trusted to be the ‘experts’ in our fields – which enables us to manage our time in a way that works best for us while getting the job done.
