At Meraki, we’re simplifying IT. Our cloud teams build and maintain our cloud applications, which run millions of networks, cameras, and sensors across the globe. Our customers use the Meraki web dashboard and programmable APIs to monitor, configure, and automate critical IT infrastructure that serves tens of millions of people every single day. Cisco collects extensive amounts of data from devices all over the world. We write millions of data points each second globally every day. With this data, we power Dashboard and a rich set of programmable APIs that allow our customers to gain insight into the state of their networks.

In this role, you will lead the team of engineers responsible for the platform upon which Meraki’s Dashboard runs. This team owns Ruby, Rails, and the containers in which they run. This team’s primary customers are other engineers. Their role is to improve the developer experience working within our ecosystem by:

  • Providing secure, up-to-date containers for Ruby-based services, including Dashboard
  • Modernizing Ruby and Rails
  • Guiding teams on best practices to simplify upgrading Ruby and Rails
  • Modernizing internal service frameworks
  • Automating as much of that as possible

As a manager at Meraki, you will provide architectural leadership, review code and designs, and help guide product direction. You will be a strong mentor, nurturing a collaborative environment where your team can do their best work. This is a highly visible and strategic program, and the opportunity is here to build something beautifully simple that engineers love.

Example projects as an Engineering Manager:

  • Holding regular one-on-ones with your team, ongoing coaching, mentorship, career conversations, and compensation planning.
  • Planning and tracking timelines for your team, ensuring efficient execution, and addressing relevant partners when things change.
  • Working with our recruiters on targeted hiring efforts.
  • Working with senior engineers on your team to figure out the best path toward modernizing our platform.

You are an ideal candidate if you:

  • Are interested in a leadership role because it allows you to work closely with others to help them achieve their best. You have led teams of more than three people and are looking for an opportunity to explore a new domain while nurturing the continued growth of a team.
  • Have demonstrated ability building systems that maintain a balance between time to market, usability, and technical architecture
  • Have a track record of technical leadership and a desire to explore management
  • Are adaptable and versatile, but also understand the business necessity of schedules and estimates.
  • Have experience with Ruby on Rails
  • Product/project management skills and an understanding of how to balance product requests against internal priorities

Bonus points for experience with any of the following:

  • Mentoring individuals at different stages of their career
  • Networking technologies
  • Experience upgrading platforms while full scale development continues

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 managers come from a diverse set of backgrounds.
