You will lead and build a small, hardworking team. You have unlimited funding. You have a global brand and 25,000 sales people. And you have a launch date. What do you do now?
This is a unique opportunity to develop the mobile experience for our IoT product family where you enjoy the benefit of Meraki’s agile startup culture, while gaining the scale and resources of a global corporation such as Cisco. In this role, you will be responsible for bringing a simple concept or early prototype to market as quickly as possible. You will protect the idea of a Minimally Viable Product (MVP), while executing with the hunger of a small company seeking their next round of funding.
By using many market-leading technologies and infrastructure components already in use at Meraki, you will have the opportunity to build at a scale that would be impossible on your own. All of this is possible because you will be working with a diverse and incredibly talented collection of people. From developers to marketeers, sales people to executives, you will influence, motivate, and direct a wide variety of resources to achieve the collective goal.
WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING:
Becoming an industry expert in your field.
Taking a product concept from nothing to something.
Shipping the first MVP within 6 months of joining.
Defining, owning, and executing a 3 year roadmap for our mobile app strategy.
Ultimate responsibility for everything related to the IoT mobile app product.
You will be involved in everything. Your mission is to work out what will make the difference at any given time, and focus on positively impacting that outcome when there isn’t time to do everything.
Working with every department at the company.
Spending up to 20% of your time traveling to see customers and industry events.
WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:
An entrepreneur, a risk taker, someone who looks beyond tomorrow.
A leader with exceptional interpersonal skills capable of motivating a diverse team.
Someone with a curious nature with a love of new and emerging technologies.
Customer empathy, but with the critical thinking needed to ask the challenging questions.
An abstract thinker who can spot the patterns of high value customer problems.
Being able to distill complicated ideas into just the right number of words.
A story teller, a natural passion for the product, a sales person in disguise.
MVP execution. It doesn’t matter how good the product is if it doesn’t ship.
Experience in a customer-centric, cross-functional role such as product management, consulting systems engineer, technical marketing engineer, or founder.
Experience working with an app as the only product interface, or as the product itself.
Experience as a developer / network engineer.
A passion for data, sensors, and a world of IoT.
We know that technology can connect, empower, and drive us. Our mission is to simplify technology so our customers can focus on what's most meaningful to them: their students, patients, customers, and businesses. We’re making networking easier, faster, and smarter with technology that simply works.
At Cisco Meraki, we don’t just accept difference – it’s one of our key values. Everybody In means we listen to each other’s opinions. Everybody is accepted and valued here, and we are a team that works as one towards our goals. We recognize that diverse teams make the strongest teams, and we encourage people from all backgrounds to apply.
