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 IT and security easier, faster, and smarter with technology that simply works. Meraki’s firmware containers team is a growing, quality-focused team reimagining the architecture that governs the code running on millions of physical devices in customer networks.

As a Senior Backend Engineer on MX VPN team, you will collaborate with firmware and other Backend/SRE engineers to architect, design, and build a large-scale system running a Meraki VPN service. Meraki VPN enables secure connections between over a million network nodes and our customers rely on our products to serve tens of millions of people. With the large footprint that we have, quality is our highest priority. MX VPN team is responsible for delivering a simple to use but very powerful, scalable, and groundbreaking cloud-managed VPN service to customers. With help from product managers and firmware engineers, you will construct intuitive but powerful systems that will be used by VPN customers.

What you will work on:

  • Solve challenging architecture problems to build scalable and extendable systems.
  • Work with firmware engineers and PM to build intuitive and powerful workflows to handle containers
  • Coordinate and align knowledge and opinions between firmware, SRE, and dashboard developers.
  • With the help of other senior engineers, implement sophisticated backend systems to handle MX SDWAN & Security solutions.
  • Identify and solve performance bottlenecks in our Backend architecture.
  • Take complete ownership from conception to production release by leveraging your ability to influence, facilitate, and work collaboratively across teams.
  • Lead, mentor, and spread best practices to other specialists on the team.
You are an ideal fit if you:
  • 4+ years of experience writing professional production code and tests for large scale systems
  • 4+ years of experience in Backend technologies (Ruby on Rails, Scala, Go).
  • Can implement efficient database design and query performance in a relational database (Postgres)
  • Experience with Container solutions (Kubernetes)
  • Strategic and product-oriented approach with a desire to understand users
  • Outstanding communication skills

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.
