Social Media Manager

| Chicago

Most everyone is a social media manager in 2019. The tools are part of everyday life and have reshaped the way the world communicates. Surrounded as we are by all this technology, certain fundamentals remain: we’re all humans, fundamentally chasing the same things: among them, connection, recognition, to be heard. At Cisco Meraki, we care deeply about the experiences our customers have as they interact with our technology and our business. Social tools give us the privilege to be where our customers are online, so we can listen, engage, and communicate, making a positive contribution to the customer experience.

If you’re passionate about connecting with others, if you feel a sense of responsibility for every interaction, if you love nothing more than making someone’s day, we may have just the job for you. Cisco Meraki is seeking its first Social Media Manager to facilitate social media strategy and execution, and to drive our online presence in thoughtful, authentic, human ways.

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.
