At Cisco customers come first and an integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships and working with them to identify their needs and provide solutions that support their success.

The concept of solutions being driven to address specific customer challenges has been with Cisco since its inception. Husband and wife Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices located in different buildings but were unable to due to technological shortcomings. A technology had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols; and as a result of solving their challenge – the multi-protocol router was born.

Since then Cisco has shaped the future of the Internet by creating unprecedented value and opportunity for our customers, employees, investors and ecosystem partners and has become the worldwide leader in networking – transforming how people connect, communicate and collaborate.

Softwire Technology is a bespoke software development house based in Kentish Town in North London.

At Softwire we develop complex systems to support businesses. We have created several large web applications, such as the Lonely Planet Shop site and the BBC Music Events site. We also develop enterprise mobile and tablet applications such as the Yudu Media Publishing platform.

We take on graduates who have a keen interest in programming, but not necessarily any experience. A typical day with us can involve anything from designing a new piece of software and talking to the client to understand the requirements, through coding the features to working out support and test strategies so that the softwire is working correctly when it’s needed.
