We’re making networking easier, faster, and smarter with technology that simply works.

As Director of Product Management for Data Science and Analytics, you will partner with our central Data Science team and our product teams to empower our customers with new data powered products that simplify complex enterprise IT workflows.

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 on groundbreaking cloud managed hardware.

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