At Cisco Meraki, we know that technology can connect, empower, and drive us. Our mission is to simplify technology so our customers can focus on what's most meaningful to them: their students, patients, customers, and businesses. We’re making networking easier, faster, and smarter with technology that simply works.

The camera team is a growing, fast-moving team building security cameras with a unique edge-storage architecture, disrupting an industry where innovation is rare. The Meraki MV security camera system is powerful, secure, and does not rely on any on-premise servers, making it easy to deploy and scale from one to hundreds of cameras per site.

As a Mobile Engineer at Meraki, you will help build features for Meraki’s mobile app, a companion to Meraki’s dashboard. The Meraki dashboard is a simple but powerful application in an industry where unfriendly command line interfaces are the norm. Dashboard provides rich visualizations that allow our customers to manage and deploy their networks and cameras easily, rapidly identify and resolve issues, and scale their lean IT networks to large deployments because all the configuration lives within the cloud. The mobile app augments this experience for users who are away from their desks.

You will be working on the Meraki MV Camera team, building out mobile features for viewing and searching through video, creative and intuitive interfaces for camera configuration, and intelligently notifying users of events.

Example projects of a mobile camera engineer:
  • Build powerful video monitoring and search tools for mobile security personnel
  • Collaborate with UX designers and analyze user feedback to identify frictional workflows, then build tools to streamline those processes
  • Enable security camera installers to deploy and configure many cameras, efficiently and painlessly
  • Focus on the end-user experience - thoughtfully craft a fluid and intuitive interface for quickly finding video or images of interest
  • Work with other mobile developers at Meraki on internal frameworks and refine our app infrastructure to augment productivity
You are ideal for this role if you have:
  • A bachelor's degree or equivalent experience in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field
  • 6+ years of software development experience
  • 4+ years of experience in JavaScript or JS Frameworks (React Native, React, Angular, node)
  • Experience prototyping, shipping, and iterating on a new product or complex feature
  • Have the ability to influence, facilitate discussion, and work in partnership with other teams
  • Strategic and product oriented mindset with a deep desire to understand users
  • Aren't afraid of rolling your sleeves up and working in all layers of the stack
  • You flourish within a small engineering team and are excited to tackle open-ended problems
Preferred:
  • 2+ years of building connected mobile apps
  • React-Native or React experience
Bonus points for:
  • Knowledge of multimedia and streaming video fundamentals (HLS, h.264 etc)
  • Experience working with media-rich user interfaces - images and video
  • You have previously worked with Ruby on Rails and React or similar full-stack technologies

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.
