Security Development Intern

  • Responsibilities

    The modern world runs on the Internet, and the Internet cannot exist without its underlying infrastructure. Meraki makes setting up, managing, and maintaining that infrastructure easier than it has ever been before. Meraki enables connectivity everywhere from neighborhood cafes to education institutions to global hospitality groups operating thousands of sites.

    The Security Development team is responsible for building secure "paved path" libraries and components for consumption by partnering teams, secrets and certificate management and architecture review for AWS based systems. As an intern, you will get hands-on experience in secure coding concepts, IaC tooling and vulnerability management automation.

    Meraki believes that the quality of our product is dependent on the quality of our engineers. We place a high value on nurturing the growth and development of everyone on our team. We foster an open and supportive workplace where everybody is given the opportunity to succeed.

    Example projects of a Security Development Intern:

    • Build new features in our Secrets/Certificate management system

    • Improve automation logic within our vulnerability management pipeline

    • Assist in replacing legacy systems/components with more secure and scalable alternatives

    You are an outstanding applicant if:

    • You are pursuing a technical degree or have equivalent experience with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of computer science and information security

    • You have familiarity with Python, AWS, Terraform and Git.

    • You're interested in security concepts such as cryptography, authentication, authorization, or security protocols

    • You strive to build rich and dynamic features by expanding current tools or by creating entirely new components

    • You can expertly work beyond the boundary of single languages or technologies to identify complex bugs

    • You would flourish within a small engineering team and are excited to tackle open-ended problems

    Intern Program Overview:

    Meraki Security Development interns will join our Security Operations team for 12 weeks and will have the opportunity to work on small starter projects within our Security Development team, such as integration and implementation of new tools, and once up to speed spending the majority of the program on a larger project, such as building the infrastructure for a new service. Projects are cross functional, which allow insight into new technologies and concepts which will help encourage professional growth within engineering, and allow a sense of ownership within the team.

    Meraki's engineering teams place a high emphasis on mentorship. Each intern is matched 1:1 with a mentor who provides continual feedback and guidance throughout the duration of the program. Mentors help with introductions to other team members, overviews of tools and processes, and provide a seamless integration into Meraki life.

    • The option to work 100% remote

    • Housing assistance

    • Social events inside and outside of the office
