Talent Brand Manager & Social Media Specialist
Global Talent Brand Team
Lauren Grimaldo, while new to Cisco's Global Talent Brand Team is not new to Cisco. She started working as a logistics manager at the San Jose Customer Experience Center (CXC), back in 2014. Her career aspirations and newfound knowledge of Cisco's Human Resources Leadership Program led her to obtain her Master's Degree in I/O Psychology from Golden Gate University. Following the completion of her degree in 2018, she started a 12-week internship program that leads us to present day. After enduring a busy summer managing the @WeAreCisco Snapchat channel, Lauren helped make the case for why the Talent Brand team should put Snapchat to rest and focus on other social channels with more visibility, for example, Instagram.
A Bay Area native, Lauren received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of San Francisco in 2013. She is happy to reside in San Jose, CA because of the exposure to diverse culture and opportunity to give back, especially at local foodbanks. When not working or volunteering, Lauren is often spending time with her family and being an auntie to her three nephews and two nieces. She loves music and frequently attends concerts from various genres. Her favorite festival is Coachella Valley Music Festival in Indio, CA.
