The Cisco Meraki Product Management (PM) team is seeking a highly motivated and creative Technical Marketing Engineer (TME) to support product management activities for the MT team. This groundbreaking family of environmental sensors uses Meraki’s cloud infrastructure to allow for smarter spaces and safer environments for our customers. As the drivers of the vision for each product line in Meraki’s expanding portfolio of cloud-based IT solutions, the Product Management team is comprised of individuals with a broad and diverse skill set—everything from strategy and analysis to technical troubleshooting (plus bike repair and cooking!).

Cross-functional communication is a must, as product teams work with just about every team in Meraki’s San Francisco HQ office, and beyond. Within the PM team, TMEs provide the technical backbone and are instrumental to the overall functionality and success of each product. As the most trusted advisor to the product manager, the TME is fundamental to a product's success. TMEs are responsible for a variety of work, from funneling customer feedback into real product features and bug fixing/triaging to working with global silicon manufacturers in Taiwan.

This product and this team are in the exceedingly rare position of being able to change a multibillion-dollar industry. By focusing on simplicity, we are enabling the mass-scale adoption of IoT sensor technology in a way that has never been done before.

With speed and agility being important attributes of Meraki, teams are small with individuals capable of outsized impact. What you do matters, and with the direct product team typically consisting of just a handful of people, you will see the outcome of your actions every day.

An ideal candidate has:

  • Experience working with a variety of people and groups within an organization (internal/external customer support, channel partners, sales or systems engineering)
  • At least 2 years of industry experience (IT administration, technical marketing/sales/support, or similar)
  • Familiarity with the fundamentals of Linux systems administration and scripting languages like Ruby, Python, Javascript, or similar
  • Fundamental understanding of, and hands-on experience with network technologies like DHCP, DNS, network topologies, etc.

Bonus points for:

  • A BS/MS in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related technical field
  • A curious nature and desire to tinker: you want to pull things apart to see how they work
  • Love of new and emerging technologies
  • Being able to distill complicated ideas to just the right number of words
  • Experienced with technical writing and querying data using tools such as Salesforce/SQL
  • An understanding of the fundamentals of environmental sensor technology
