About Cisco Meraki

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 hospitals to airports.

Our devices are some of the most popular in the world : there are over 7 million devices online globally. This popularity comes with large scalability challenges : our backend handles more than 10 billion requests to our devices 24 / 7 / 365.

About the role

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to build the Config Team. You will be designing new services and systems, working on scalability and resiliency challenges, and helping us build a new team.

It’s a great chance to join at the very beginning of a team, shape its culture and define the roadmap of Config and the wider Backend Services team.

Our main focus is to make these backend services highly scalable and fault tolerant.

What you will do :

  • Work with engineers, product management, and other engineering leaders to set the technical vision for the team and the wider Backend Services organization.
  • Play a key role in building the Config Team, encourage best practices, code quality metrics and standards as well as define SLAs / SLOs for the set of services you own.
  • Enable the team to make decisions to refactor monoliths into microservices, extract APIs and re-usable components and help us move towards containerization.
  • Partner with our recruiters to build a diverse and inclusive team
  • Mentor and coach junior and senior engineers through technical and non-technical challenges
  • Encourage thoughtful and creative ways to recognize achievements on the team
  • Lead performance, compensation, and promotion review processes
  • Provide thoughtful counsel as a member of senior engineering leadership
  • Assist with engineering-wide initiatives (offsite, training, process evolution) several times per year
  • About you :

  • Experience managing teams of more than 5 engineers
  • Experience building teams and making decisions on recruiting and organization design
  • Experience writing code for large-scale SaaS environments
  • Experience partnering with Product Management to balance technical tradeoffs with user needs
  • Know your way around one of the languages we use : Go, Ruby, Scala, C / C++. You embrace the idea of being language-agnostic
  • Experience with SQL and any RDBMS is a plus
  • The ability to meet technical challenges by seeking domain expertise and asking the right questions
  • The empathy, emotional intelligence, and communication skills to lead a diverse and distributed group of engineers at varying stages of their careers
  • We encourage you to drop us a line even if you don’t have all the points above. That's a lot of different areas of responsibility! You don’t need to have a background in computer networking either.

    We will help you pick them up because we believe that excellent engineers come from diverse backgrounds.
