Meraki MS is an enterprise-grade line of network switches that are entirely managed from the cloud.

  • Select and follow appropriate agile and other software development principles so your team consistently delivers high quality, working software.
  • Write performance reviews and encourage the professional growth of everyone on your team.
  • Identify gaps in your team’s knowledge or ability to execute, and work with our recruiters to build out your team.
  • Be a part of the leadership of the larger MS team: weighing in on development priorities, projects going on across the team, etc.

You are an ideal candidate if you have:

  • BS degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or equivalent experience.
  • 6+ years of relevant work experience in system software development in the networking domain, especially switching.
  • Interested in a leadership role because it allows you to work closely with others to help them achieve their best. Ideally you have at least a year of experience leading a team.

  • Experience building rapidly growing systems that balance time to market, usability, reliability, and technical debt.
  • Disciplined approach to development, testing, and quality.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills.
  • Ability to adapt to changing situations.

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 engineers come from a diverse set of backgrounds.
