Cisco Meraki

Location: California, San Francisco, California

Job Type: Full time


Engineering Manager, Corporate Engineering (Salesforce), Remote in the U.S.

At Meraki, we make IT easier, faster, and smarter with technology that simply works! Our team is a fast-growing engineering organization that focuses on building internal business systems to make Merakians more efficient.

As an engineering manager at Meraki, you will provide architectural leadership, review code and designs, and introduce engineering processes as well as automation such as Devops in Salesforce, and integration tools such as MuleSoft, and Ruby on Rails.

We are also looking for a strong mentor, nurturing a collaborative environment where your team can do their best work. In this highly technical role, you will make your own direct contributions to project discussions but your primary focus will be on team execution and employee development.

You will make an impact by:

  • Holding regular one-on-ones with your team, ongoing coaching and mentorship, writing performance evaluations, and career planning.
  • Helping your team navigate decisions between cloud-based versus in-house solutions and open-source products versus proprietary ones; striking a balance between self-learning, formal training, conferences, and on-the-job training.
  • Working with your senior engineers to identify and scope areas for improvement, ensuring we have scalable and extremely reliable platforms as well as other teams—including Sales, Marketing, Ops and Support—to deliver on projects important to the business.
  • Collaborating with peer managers to prioritize and complete critical business projects, maintaining collaboration with the rest of engineering to make sure your team stays consistent on processes, knowledge sharing, and innovation.

You are an excellent candidate if:

  • You are excited to work closely with others to help them achieve their best. (Ideally, you have demonstrated ability directing a team either as a people or technical leader)
  • You have 6+ years of experience developing systems for large-scale production environments with 2+ years Salesforce development experience.
  • You have experience building rapidly growing systems that balance time to market, usability, reliability, and technical debt.
  • You are never satisfied by just seeing something work. Your curiosity drives you to peek behind the curtain to gain a deeper understanding of what’s going on and continuously improve.
  • You are experienced with a variety of tools that help you manage, understand, and debug large and complex distributed systems such as sales, marketing, operations and finance systems.
  • You have a BS/MS/Ph.D in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field.

Example projects:

  • Cross functional/departmental projects on Salesforce, altering the way we sell and license Meraki products.
  • Integration projects connecting Meraki to other systems across Cisco, always keeping in mind performance, security, and reusability.

Bonus points for experience with any of the following:

  • Formal project management with scrum certification in Agile Methodology.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills.
  • Technologies:, MuleSoft, Ruby on Rails, ERP, Full Stack development (Java/C#) or Marketing automation tools.

We encourage you to drop us a line even if you don’t have all the points above. That’s a lot of different areas of responsibility! We will help you pick them up because we believe that great teams come from a diverse set of backgrounds.
