    Meraki is making IT easier, faster, and smarter. As a business unit of Cisco Systems, Meraki is the fastest growing cloud-managed networking team in the world with products and technology architecture that are changing the face of enterprise networking and making cloud-managed IT a reality. Cisco Meraki is on track to be the most successful acquisition in Cisco's history (and certainly the most fun). Our office makes working here pretty special too. If you're looking for a company that really commits, how about our onsite gym with weekly fitness and yoga classes, and paid time off to volunteer and give back to the community? All in all, what truly makes Meraki special are the people - people who keep the culture strong and make working here exciting, meaningful, and rewarding.

    Ideal candidates will have senior executive presence, excellent relationship building skills, strategic and analytical mindsets, and strong organizational skills to drive projects to completion. Furthermore, candidates should serve as thought leaders for the organization, proactively providing recommendations and helping identify strategic market opportunities for Meraki.

    Every single day is truly unlike the one before and your appetite for collaboratively solving problems, passion for impact, and unparalleled desire to be part of a growing team will help guide the strategic direction of the business!
