The Cisco Meraki team is seeking an experienced and driven Product Manager to lead product management activities for our public developer platform (APIs and developer tools) and ecosystem (partner integrations and App Marketplace). Your team covers product areas such as the developer experience with our API as well as partner and customer experiences with our App Marketplace. You will drive the strategy to expand the capabilities of Meraki’s cloud management APIs, developer tools, key partner integrations, and App Marketplace, and collaborate with product teams across the company (wireless access points, network security appliances, intelligent video cameras, and more).

Meraki is changing the way the industry thinks about networking, and you will lead the charge to continue the evolution. You will team up with forward-thinking engineers and excited customers to help ensure that we have the best user experience and the most advanced cloud platform in the industry. You will work closely with the executive team to establish a winning strategy, and collaborate with our extraordinary sales, marketing, and partner teams to ensure market-adoption and rapid growth.

You will have a significant impact on one of the fastest growing connected hardware companies in the world, reach a global customer base, and work at the cutting edge of large scale cloud managed IT.

Every day is truly unlike the one before. Your penchant for approaching problems with creative solutions, sincere passion for engineering, and ambition to be part of (and lead) an innovative and inspiring team, are the tools you’ll need to be a Meraki Product Leader.

What you'll be doing:

  • Define the strategy for the Meraki developer platform (REST and Webhook APIs, developer tools) and ecosystem (partner integrations and App Marketplace)
  • Discover and prioritize customer use cases and requirements to expand our products to new markets
  • Work closely with our elite engineering teams to continue to simplify our best in class user experience
  • Define product strategy, roadmap, positioning, and pricing
  • Team up with our rapidly growing sales teams and partners to solve customer problems
  • Define and drive discrete components of a cross-product unification strategy across all layers - engineering, sales, marketing and product

What we're looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience in a Product Management role, including 2+ years with app marketplaces and cloud based APIs or developer platforms
  • Industry experience in Computer Networking, IT Service Management (ITSM) or IT Operations Management (ITOM), and an interest in networking, cloud, and emerging technologies
  • BA/BS in Computer Science, Information Systems, Engineering or related degree
  • Technical background in cloud infrastructure and agile software development
  • Have worked cross-functionally on large projects with multiple engineering teams
  • Strong sense of customer empathy to care deeply about top customer problems
  • Able to easily communicate complicated concepts to non-technical people
  • Ambitious, can-do attitude with an intuitive understanding of product quality
  • You love solving technical problems in creative ways

Bonus points for:

  • MBA or a related advanced degree
  • Certified in Scrum/Agile methodologies
  • Experience working at a SaaS or PaaS enterprise company
