Who We Are

At Cisco Meraki, we are making IT easier, faster, and smarter by building technology that simply works. Meraki’s Dashboard drastically simplifies the process of deploying, configuring and running distributed networks, enabling customers to focus on what's most meaningful to them: their students, patients, customers, and businesses.

Do you want to work for an inspiring, positive company, with creative and collaborative colleagues? At Cisco Meraki, we're on track to be the most successful acquisition in Cisco’s history (and certainly the most fun)!

This role is unique in that you will be hands on throughout the process as you put your designs and our products to the test. Part of your role will also include technical enablement of your customer’s sales, operations, and marketing teams as well as support to automate provisioning tasks.

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.
