What You'll Do

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Cisco Product Legal team directly supporting the Cisco Security Business Group. Cisco Security provides security solutions to protect our customers’ networks, cloud environments, endpoints and email through a unifying platform, the Cisco Security Cloud.

We’re looking for someone who can:

  • Manage legal requests from multiple internal clients, while prioritizing key work for your business;
  • Work closely with product managers to support your products all stages of the product lifecycle, from inception to end of life;
  • Draft product legal collateral such as privacy disclosures and product specific terms;
  • Dive into understanding and counseling your business partners on privacy, responsible AI, regulatory, and intellectual property matters and collaborate with legal subject matter experts in these areas;
  • Assist your business partners with defining strategy and key terms for strategic partner, alliance, joint marketing, design partner and other similar agreements;
  • Become adept at quickly making fast, sound legal judgments to facilitate nimble business execution;
  • Communicate clearly and succinctly, both orally and in writing, on a range of legal issues; and

Desired Skills for this role:


  • Excellent business judgment, advocating for acceptable legal risk to enable business outcomes;
  • Customer and client-centric approach, with a strong sense of ownership in implementing legal deliverables in a timely manner;
  • Strong writing, with the ability to discuss complex issues in a clear and simple manner both in writing and orally;
  • Focused attention to detail and ability to work independently but not afraid to ask for help when needed;
  • Strong organizational skills; and
  • Experience and familiarity with data privacy and cybersecurity laws.

Your Minimum Qualifications:


  • Bar admission in any jurisdiction with good standing, with a minimum of 3 years of relevant product counseling or comparable experience.

Our Legal Department

We are a team of 500+ Legal and Compliance professionals in 25+ countries committed to fostering an inclusive and collaborative environment as we work together to drive Cisco’s success. We serve as trusted advisors to the business – problem solving, navigating complexities, and enabling transformation along the way. We use technology to make life easier – demonstrating Cisco’s innovative networking and collaboration tools to enable flexible, hybrid work. And we adopt the responsibility to be a force for good – donating our time and expertise through pro bono and community impact initiatives.

Why Cisco


#WeAreCisco. We are all unique, but collectively we bring our talents to work as a team, to develop innovative technology and power a more inclusive, digital future for everyone. How do we do it? Well, for starters – with people like you!

Nearly every internet connection around the world touches Cisco. We’re the Internet’s optimists. Our technology makes sure the data traveling at light speed across connections does so securely, yet it’s not what we make but what we make happen which marks us out. We’re helping those who work in the health service to connect with patients and each other; schools, colleges, and universities to teach in even the most challenging of times. We’re helping businesses of all shapes and sizes to connect with their employees and customers in new ways, providing people with access to the digital skills they need and connecting the most remote parts of the world – whether through 5G, or otherwise.

We tackle whatever challenges come our way. We have each other’s backs, we recognize our accomplishments, and we grow together. We celebrate and support one another – from big and small things in life to big career moments. And giving back is in our DNA (we get 10 days off each year to do just that).

We know that powering an inclusive future starts with us. Because without diversity and a dedication to equality, there is no moving forward. Our 30 Inclusive Communities, that bring people together around commonalities or passions, are leading the way. Together we’re committed to learning, listening, caring for our communities, whilst supporting the most vulnerable with a collective effort to make this world a better place either with technology, or through our actions.

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! #WeAreCisco
