Cisco Networking is an industry leader providing intelligent network solutions for organizations to securely connect users, devices, applications, and workloads everywhere. We empower organizations everywhere – from local libraries to global hotels – to focus on their mission and have technology that simply works. Cisco has been named #1 Best Company to Work For in the U.S. by Fortune in 2023!

What We Are Looking For

Industrial IOT (IIoT) network products support complex industrial devices (ex. cranes, conveyor belts, factory floor machinery, traffic lights system, power grid systems etc) stay connected and secure. As a IIOT designer, you will be working on designing networking and security use cases to simplify the scale and complexity required to run industrial operations.

In this role, you will develop and demonstrate deep domain knowledge, product expertise, and an understanding of complex customer use cases and deployment models. You’ll deeply understand the needs of our customers, set the vision for the product grounded in those needs, and partner with cross-functional teams to build it iteratively.

Our team's primary focus is on software, and we also find opportunities to collaborate with teams across the organization to 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, giving and receiving feedback early and often, sharing what we know, and learning from each other.


  • Through UX methodologies, drive early discovery work, using findings to craft short, mid, long-term delivery roadmaps, leading and designing with a team to bring it to life.
  • Design products: identify the right problems to solve, run and synthesize research, sketch and prototype solutions, make hi-fi visuals.
  • Earn trust with cross-function partners by seeking out their points of view, collaborating regularly and invite them into research and co-creation with the team and customers. Advocate for prioritization of design-centered product enhancements grounded in research and analysis.
  • Present persuasively. Be able to tell the story of a project and build prototypes that precisely articulate design rationale.
  • Provide direction to and mentor other designers; guide team to focus on the most important customer needs, difficulties and opportunities
  • Think beyond your team's goals and consider how your work affects others and how you can influence other teams’ work.
  • Influence the strategic vision and design of large, complex initiatives for a product, program or strategic effort of considerable size and scope.
  • Translate what may start as ambiguous business needs into clear customer-focused solutions.
  • Facilitate workshops, sketching and prototyping sessions; build documentation and templates that enable others to consume and contribute.

You're an ideal candidate if you have:

  • 6+ years of professional experience designing and delivering products in cross-functional teams from strategy to delivery.
  • Knowledge of the networking domain and IIoT concepts, technologies, and challenges, is a plus.
  • Experience working on technically complex B2B enterprise products
  • Aligned teams around customer-centered design decisions, using UX methodologies and tools (double-diamond, personas, journey mapping, dual agile, lean ux, prototypes), and influenced adoption by those who aren’t familiar with strategic UX engagements.
  • A proven track record of shipping large scale enterprise products.
  • Ability to see the bigger picture, while zooming in to rationalize and perfect the nuanced details.
  • Made complex problems and workflows feel simple and approachable.
  • Balanced strategic research and discovery with shipping often.
  • Persuasive storytelling and strong communication skills.
  • Lead and mentored junior UX designers, fostering a collaborative and innovative design culture within the team.
