Posted on: May 6, 2024

Job Description:

At Cisco Meraki, we know that technology can connect, empower, and drive us. Our mission is to simplify technology so our customers can focus on what's most meaningful to them: their students, patients, customers, and businesses. We're making networking easier, faster, and smarter with technology that simply works.

The modern world runs on the internet, and the internet cannot exist without its underlying infrastructure. Meraki makes setting up, managing, and maintaining that infrastructure easier than it has ever been before. Meraki enables connectivity everywhere from neighborhood cafes to education institutions to global hospitality groups operating thousands of sites.

The Opportunity:

You are an inspiring innovator, mentor, and coach, conversant and passionate about the intersection of secure software development and a great customer experience. You lead by example and demonstrate excellence in collaboration and communication across engineering teams, with an interest in creative problem solving and a consistent track record for leading and directly chipping in to transformational changes that impact security. You are proficient at writing code and deploying it into a distributed architecture. You are also an effective spokesperson and champion for engineering teams, passionate about mentoring and developing engineers. You are an inspiring leader and a thorough problem solver who is equally comfortable and capable interacting with technologists as with senior business executives with the ability to articulate the value and risks of the proposed solution. You value simplicity at scale and are dedicated to maintaining a culture of quality, reliability, security, and focused execution.

  • Design, build consensus, and contribute to the implementation of critical authentication and authorization systems across cloud engineering teams
  • Work with PM, engineering, UX and other partners to set product vision and define roadmaps and goals spanning multiple organizations or teams
  • Help nurture a culture focused on the best possible customer experience
  • Work with security and compliance teams to find practical ways to reduce risk and achieve compliance goals
  • Partner with senior engineers and leadership to guide best practices
  • Work in distributed architectures and with data structures and algorithms
  • Build and deploy critical, 24x7 solutions in a SaaS environment
  • Lead and/or participate in office hours, give talks, and generate documentation and training to grow engineers' skills
  • Architect and validate solutions to address security challenges
  • Problem solve, debug, and fix elusive bugs with advanced development skills

    We are looking for:

    • You have 12+ years of related experience and are recognized as a strategic problem solver in internal and external forums, with extensive technical, market, and business expertise.
    • Experience with modern application development methodologies (CI/CD, Agile/DevOps)
    • Familiarity across the stack, with a particular interest and deep expertise in the intersection of fullstack development and security
    • Experience with OAuth, SAML, and cloud security primitives like SSL and token exchange
    • Ability to get consensus and set technical direction within a large engineering organization
    • Expert in building from scratch and/or evolving large web applications
    • Adaptability combined with the experience to identify and evaluate opportunities for improvement
    • Passionate about solving real customer problems and have experience prototyping, shipping, and iterating on new products
    • A strong sense of usability and attention to the users of a system (whether developers using a framework or customers using the product)
    • A focused, organized approach to development, testing, and quality.

      We work with a mix of languages and technologies at Meraki including Ruby (and Rails), JavaScript/TypeScript, Scala, Go, and other languages. We know that everyone's tech stack is different and that skills translate. If you've used comparable technologies and like learning new things there's a good chance you're an ideal fit for the team.

      Bonus points for experience in:

      • Working with the compliance requirements of large organizations
      • Building libraries to enable secure development

        .75% of incentive target for each 1% of revenue attainment up to 50% of quota;

        1.5% of incentive target for each 1% of attainment between 50% and 75%;

        1% of incentive target for each 1% of attainment between 75% and 100%; and once performance exceeds 100% attainment, incentive rates are at or above 1% for each 1% of attainment with no cap on incentive compensation.

        For non-quota-based sales performance elements such as strategic sales objectives, Cisco may pay up to 125% of target. Cisco sales plans do not have a minimum threshold of performance for sales incentive compensation to be paid.
