How we work?

"Fast, Agile and Perfect"

Customers are now demanding features turned around in weeks, see them work in their labs and deploy them in an Agile manner; enhance the implementation based on field feedback and so on. You need to be excited about understanding the requirement, design and code them to deliver a quick early drop, and be agile to refine it based on real field feedback to make it ready for deployment. In all of this, top focus is a must on the aspect of quality, so that our Customers do not lose time and money during their deployment and Operations.

"Outcome based and Customer focus"

Cisco wins when the customer wins and makes money, after deploying your new implementation! This needs very close Customer engagement right from understanding their requirement/deployment scenarios, iteratively seek feedback both ways and pro-actively and quickly turn around any questions or issues customers find - to enable them deploy and win quickly!

"Empowered Teams, Fun and Open Culture"

Each team decides collectively on the best options to help the customer situation in an empowered manner. We celebrate Customer wins and milestone achievements and relish our hard work that made it happen! - Many times with the Customers.

Engineers have the flexibility to work across multiple technology components with soft-component ownership that enhances their learning potential.

Engineers are encouraged to up-skill by various means like: develop prototypes for innovations and new trends, contribute to open source communities, participate and deliver tech-talks.
