Meraki – Why Work For Us?

undefined

The Cisco Cloud Networking Group is the team behind Cisco Meraki, the industry's leading cloud networking solution that brings the benefits of the cloud to enterprise networks. 

Cisco Meraki includes a complete portfolio of wireless LAN, switching, security appliances, and mobile device management, all centrally managed from the cloud. Unlike traditional hardware-centric networking solutions, Cisco Meraki is built on intelligent software and rich cloud-based services, simplifying customers' day-to-day operations and enabling the adoption of new applications and devices. 

The Cloud Networking Group was created by Cisco's 2012 acquisition of Meraki - a company that began as the brainchild of MIT PhD students and grew into the leader in cloud networking. Today, the Cloud Networking Group continues to grow explosively, building new products on the Meraki platform, and expanding sales into new markets. 

The group is headquartered in Cisco SF, a center for software innovation based in a brand-new site overlooking the water in San Francisco's Mission Bay. The Cloud Networking Group is hiring top talent in software engineering, sales, sales engineering, technical support, marketing, and operations

While Internet-enabled devices and web applications are constantly improving, enterprise networks have remained unchanged. Costly, complex, inflexible, and unreliable, traditional infrastructure too often fails to meet the exploding demands of modern networks.

In 2003, a group of graduate students at MIT set out to build a simple, scalable, and cost-effective wireless network to blanket Cambridge, MA. They succeeded, and in the process, invented a new network architecture that used the power of cloud computing to make truly plug and play large scale networks. Realizing they were on to something big, they left MIT, moved to California and started Meraki, now part of Cisco.

Today, we offer a complete enterprise-class networking solution that is easy to use, affordable, and gives administrators the visibility and control they need to manage an explosion of iPads and web applications. Cisco Meraki products are used in over 20,000 customer networks, from Starbucks and Stanford University to schools and small businesses.

The Cisco Meraki team is made up of the best and the brightest: Computer Science PhDs from MIT and Berkeley, marketers from Apple, top sales reps from Salesforce.com, Riverbed and Aruba, and an operations team once responsible for the iPod. We offer great benefits, competitive salaries, and free lunches. But what really sets us apart is the opportunity to work on a team that is growing rapidly: where we wear many hats, learn on the fly, and are rewarded for our efforts with happy customers and even faster growth.

We currently have open positions in engineering, sales, product management, marketing and technical support. We’re looking for people who take pride in doing excellent work, are excited to build a business, work hard, and can both teach and learn from those around them. If this is you, we’d love to hear from you!

    Pros

    People, Culture, Office is best in San Fran, Food, Great product, Hires/promotes within

    Cons

    Comp packages , loosing key sales reps in last year, territory splits due to growth, compensation is under market value

    Advice to Management

    Up the OTE to keep the people who have bled for the company around. It's becoming harder to blow out your number with massive growth and territory splits and a up in OTE needs to reflect this.
