Associate Systems Engineer Job Description

The Cisco Sales Associates Program (CSAP) is one of the most highly coveted early-in-career development programs designed specifically for top university graduates from around the world who aspire to become the next generation of sales leaders at Cisco. This year long program provides world class, hands-on educational and experiential training that will develop our Associate Systems Engineers (ASEs) to become successful Systems Engineers in the Cisco Sales Organization.

If you are passionate about leading-edge technology, have strong interpersonal skills, thrive on solving problems, and want to collaborate with highly talented people globally then apply today for an Associate Systems Engineer (ASE) position at Cisco.

The ASE role enables you to advance your career rapidly by providing the training and resources needed to become successful in an industry-leading sales organization.  During the first three months of the program ASEs will expand their sales and business acumen, increase their technical knowledge and develop executive presentation skills, as well as learn about Cisco’s architectures, solutions, products and competitors. ASEs learn using technical case studies, customer simulations, and a blend of instructor-led and self-paced training delivered in state of the art virtual classrooms that leverage Cisco technologies including TelePresence and WebEx.

Throughout the next nine months of the program, in parallel with certification studies and virtual learning, ASEs will move into an engineering role where they will get on-the-job experience interacting with customers and partners and will be mentored by Cisco seasoned engineering professionals.
