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.

Meraki MS is an enterprise-grade line of network switches that are entirely managed from the cloud. Our mission is to bring Meraki simplicity to the network switching market, leaving our users delighted with ease of install and with our robust monitoring to tackle problems and answer questions about their networks. We are looking for a test automation engineer who is as passionate about quality as we are. Your contributions will have a direct impact on the success of our team’s mission, not to mention our customers’ lives.

We encourage you to drop us a line even if you don’t have all the points below. That's a lot of different areas of responsibility! We will help you pick them up because we believe that great teams come from a diverse set of backgrounds.

What you will do:

As a member of our Firmware Test Automation team, you will rise to this challenge, partnering closely with firmware developers to deliver an outstanding experience for the users who depend on our product every day for safety, security, and business intelligence. You will work on upcoming and current devices, crafting imaginative automated simulations of the real-world environments and scenarios in which they are deployed.

At your disposal will be a full suite of cameras, equipped with powerful (and ethical) computer vision technology based on machine learning, with a passionate, supportive, personal-growth oriented team by your side.

  • Complete new product testbed operations to test products and software before market launch.
  • Develop and execute test plans for new features before they ship to customers.
  • Collaborate with our firmware engineers to implement test cases, understand test results, reproduce and investigate bugs.
  • Work with third-party vendors to test bug fixes and new driver patches.
  • Manually reproduce problems discovered during automated testbed operations and work directly with firmware engineers to investigate them.
  • Partner with automation engineers to scale, improve and maintain testbed operations.

You are an ideal candidate if you have:

  • 4+ years of coding/scripting experience with either Ruby or Python.
  • Expertise in configuring and debugging networking equipment and protocols, especially switching.
  • Expert knowledge of end-to-end testing of physical embedded devices.
  • 6+ years of software test and/or QA experience.
  • 4+ years of software development experience.
  • Experience with creating and carrying out system-level test plans.
  • Experience in analyzing system-level test results and identifying red flags within a test.
  • Experience with configuring and monitoring Linux systems using command line tools and utilities.
  • Experience hiring and leading teams of software engineers.
  • Leadership experience on projects involving substantial planning and coordination (either in a formal role or de facto).
  • Effective communication skills and proven track record of collaboration with others.
  • A passion for quality, an appetite for learning about software and systems, and an interest in breaking things to learn how to make them better.
  • A technical degree or equivalent experience with a great foundation in the basics of computer networking.

Bonus points for:

  • Experience with hardware test tools such as Ixia.
