This role will be the Meraki technology expert on these deals; passionately advocating for a modern, cloud-delivered model, architecting secure WiFi and campus switching networks, proposing more modern and secure WAN alternatives, and making the case for up and coming IoT use cases for Public Sector customers in Mexico that include verticals such as Government, Higher Education and Healthcare. This role is unique in the sense that you will have to present creative solutions to complex problems, using not only technical skills but by understanding in depth the customer’s challenges.
