Our portfolio includes wireless, security, intelligent insights – plus smart cameras and sensors.

What we're looking for

As a Senior Product Designer, you'll work with our innovative IoT team to help build experiences around Meraki's newest line of environmental sensors. Our environmental sensors system is powerful, secure, and doesn’t need on-premise servers –which makes it fast and easy to deploy one to hundreds of sensors per site. Collaborating closely with cross-functional partners, you’ll balance a strategic approach with lean design execution. You’ll get to understand the complex needs of customers, help to set the vision for the product grounded in those needs, and partner with a cross-functional team to build it iteratively.

Our team's primary focus is on software, but we also find opportunities to collaborate with teams across the organization and think about how to improve the entire customer journey. Meraki believes the quality of our products is dependent on the quality of our teams. We place a high value on nurturing the growth and development of everyone on our team. On the Design Team, we give and get feedback early and often, share what we know, and learn from each other.

Responsibilities:
  • Craft experiences for mobile and desktop designed to monitor events from sensors and present meaningful analytics.
  • Identify the right problems to solve, run and synthesize research, sketch and prototype solutions, design hi-fidelity screens.
  • Iterate based on peer feedback, user research, usability testing, analytics, and other data.
  • Collaborate with partners in product management and engineering to define problems and explore solutions. Build effective working relationships and bring the wider team into the design process.
  • Present persuasively. Be able to tell the story of a project and clearly articulate design rationale.
  • Advocate for design-centered product enhancements grounded in research and analysis.
  • Evangelize the impact of design with business partners.
You are an ideal candidate if you have:
  • 6+ years of experience.
  • Designed solutions for complex domains and workflows, understanding the complexities to make them simpler and more approachable.
  • Experience designing experiences around IoT devices, cameras, or sensors.
  • Experience designing across platforms, including fluency with mobile patterns.
  • Pushed to understand the user needs behind feature requests.
  • Balanced exploring a space and developing a vision with shipping often and iteratively.
  • Worked with PMs and developers to understand trade-offs and to ensure that the details are done right.

An Insider's view of Cisco Meraki

What are some social events your company does?

Meraki Chicago hosts several social events. Some current and past events include weekly yoga and meditation sessions and cocktail classes, cooking classes, drag bingo, talent shows, and more!

Javana

Operations Supervisor

What does your typical day look like?

Badge in the door nearest the espresso machine and make latte art in the form of the Cisco logo. Work can range from teaching customers how RF works to designing multi-site Meraki networks. When I'm not evangelizing customers, teaching Networking-101, or handling escalations, I make easy work of those foolish enough to challenge me at ping pong.

Zakariya

Systems Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

By simply just being around. In addition to the regularly scheduled one on one meetings I have with everyone, I make sure that my team knows I am always here to help, in any situation.
