Digitization Office University Program

Life at Cisco

We connect everything: people, processes, data, and things. We innovate everywhere, taking bold risks to shape the technologies that give us smart cities, connected cars, and handheld hospitals. And we do it in style with unique personalities who aren’t afraid to change the way the world works, lives, plays, and learns.

We are thought leaders, tech geeks, pop culture aficionados, and we even have a few purple-haired rock stars. We celebrate the creativity and diversity that fuels our innovation. We are dreamers, and we are doers. #WeAreCisco.

What is the Cisco Digitization Office?

The Cisco Digitization Office is at the heart of Cisco’s digital transformation. As an industry leader, Cisco has helped to build the Internet and transform our customers' businesses, resulting in the creation of a $50 billion company. For us to continue being an industry leader, we must evolve our business, and the Cisco Digitization Office strategy is at the core of this transformation. Our Cisco Digitization Office strategy is a four-year journey to transform Cisco from a product and transactional company to a product and software company with an industry-leading recurring revenue model. As an intern, you will be involved in delivering this strategy, from working across different functions and analyzing data to feeding into the global strategy.


Who we look for

Our Digitization university program is a 12-week summer internship available for undergraduate and MBA students. We're looking for entrepreneurial, proactive, and self-directed candidates who are interested in developing innovative solutions to solve some of our most complex business challenges. In this role, you'll work both creatively and analytically in a collaborative and problem-solving environment with teams all around the world, giving you a connected, global experience.


Disrupting Cisco from the inside out

Digital transformation is hard work. Cisco must reimagine the customer experience, aligning people, processes, and technologies behind it. Digital technology is disrupting all markets and businesses, and the reliance on mobile technology is driving a seismic shift in the personal and professional lives of individuals. Consumers are engaging with organizations in new and different ways, and many of today's businesses need to become digital businesses. To stay relevant, global companies must act on new market opportunities sooner and launch new products and deploy emerging technologies more quickly. But speed is hard to come by for most global enterprises. Isolated silos—across finance, human resources, procurement, and sales, among other areas—create endless complexities and rigid boundaries that are time consuming to navigate.

The Cisco Digitization Office is defining, evolving, and executing Cisco's digital strategy, fundamentally transforming how Cisco does business. As a Cisco Digitization Office team member, you will have the opportunity to work across all aspects of Cisco's business—operations teams IT, HR, sales, finance, and legal—to drive strategic digital objectives.

"Working in the CDO is like being part of a start-up in a global organization. Everyday brings new challenges and your role is constantly evolving."
