As the fastest growing cloud-managed team in the world, our products and technology architecture are changing the face of enterprise networking and making cloud-managed IT a reality.

We’re seeking a Senior Digital Marketing Manager to join our Digital Marketing team to help run and optimize our paid digital advertising efforts in our in-house growth agency.

You have experience managing projects from concept to completion.

An Insider's view of Cisco Meraki

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.


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.
