The Opportunity

We are looking for a curious, creative, dynamic, and inspirational product manager to lead and grow the Meraki Smart Camera AI Intelligence business. This is an outstanding opportunity to develop a strategically important new solution category for Cisco and drive innovation.

Join us in shaping the future, where your leadership and drive for innovation can transform today's innovations into tomorrow's billion-dollar enterprise.
