Location: St Leonards

Cisco seeks a Network Engineer Intern to work within APJ Customer Proof of Concept (CPOC) organization based in Sydney, Australia. The Intern would be working closely with the APJ CPOC team to deliver product and/or solution validation engagements that will aid in closing out sales opportunities.

The engagement involves preparing the required testbed for engineers to work on and support the ongoing maintenance and enhancement of the network infrastructure.

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses.
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, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

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!
