About Meraki

Meraki is making IT easier, faster, and smarter with technology that simply works. Meraki’s Dashboard drastically simplifies the process of deploying and configuring distributed networks, enabling customers to debug networking issues in real time from anywhere. Our customers aren’t limited to those who buy Meraki equipment, we measure our success by the experience of everyone who interacts with our product, from other teams across the organization to the end users of our customers’ networks.

About the Team

The camera team is a growing, fast-moving team building security cameras with a unique edge-storage architecture, disrupting an industry where innovation is rare. The Meraki MV security camera system is powerful, secure, and does not rely on any on-premise servers, making it easy to deploy and scale from one to hundreds of cameras per site.

The Opportunity

As a Mobile Engineer at Meraki, you will help build features for Meraki’s mobile app, a companion to Meraki’s dashboard. The Meraki dashboard is a simple but powerful application in an industry where unfriendly command line interfaces are the norm. Dashboard provides rich visualizations that allow our customers to manage and deploy their networks and cameras easily, rapidly identify and resolve issues, and scale their lean IT networks to large deployments because all the configuration lives within the cloud. The mobile app augments this experience for users who are away from their desks.

You will be working on the Meraki MV Camera team, building out mobile features for viewing and searching through video, creative and intuitive interfaces for camera configuration, and intelligently notifying users of events.

Example Projects of a Mobile Camera Engineer:

  • Build powerful video monitoring and search tools for mobile security personnel
  • Collaborate with UX designers and analyze user feedback to identify frictional workflows, then build tools to streamline those processes
  • Enable security camera installers to deploy and configure many cameras, efficiently and painlessly
  • Focus on the end-user experience - thoughtfully craft a fluid and intuitive interface for quickly finding video or images of interest
  • Work with other mobile developers at Meraki on internal frameworks and refine our app infrastructure to augment productivity

You are ideal for this role if you have:

  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field
  • 2+ years of mobile software development experience
  • 4+ years of software development experience
  • Experience in mobile app development with two or more of the following (React Native, native Android, native iOS)
  • Experience building connected mobile apps
  • Experience prototyping, shipping, and iterating on a new product or complex feature
  • Have the ability to influence, facilitate discussion, and work in partnership with other teams
  • Strategic and product oriented mindset with a deep desire to understand users
  • Aren’t afraid of rolling your sleeves up and working in all layers of the stack
  • You flourish within a small engineering team and are excited to tackle open-ended problems

Bonus points for:

  • Knowledge of multimedia and streaming video fundamentals (HLS, h.264 etc)
  • Experience working with media-rich user interfaces - images and video
  • You have previously worked with Ruby on Rails and React or similar full-stack technologies
