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 networking easier, faster, and smarter with technology that simply works!

Meraki's SRE Cloud Platform team is responsible for building and scaling the cloud that supports millions of Meraki devices across the world. Meraki’s customer base has grown by a factor of 2-3 every year, serving more than 4 billion HTTP requests per day across eight data centers. Our customers depend on the Meraki cloud to monitor their critical infrastructure of network switches, security appliances, wireless APs, and security cameras. We embrace the *nix way, automate away tedious tasks and build infrastructure as code.

In this role, you're going to have the unique opportunity to architect, build and support our platform as a service (PaaS). You will be part of an engineering team that is based out of Meraki’s San Francisco headquarters and will bring your expertise to a team passionate about automating and supporting production grade hybrid cloud infrastructure based on Kubernetes/Mesos. You will make crucial decisions about how to handle and scale complex, high-performance distributed systems. You will have visibility and impact across all of Engineering.

Be prepared to join a team that contributes to and evangelizes practical engineering standards. We are a team of incredible out-of-the-box thinking engineers who take pride in helping and collaborating with our engineering teams to solve problems which help them be more efficient!

Responsibilities:
  • Design, implement and operate highly available and scalable on and off-prem orchestration platform (PaaS) that allows development teams to deploy and run their services.
  • Influence architectural decisions with focus on security, scalability and high-performance.
  • Build end-to-end documentation and instrumentation of our platform to ensure visibility, automation, self-healing and resiliency throughout the stack.
  • Collaborate with other engineers on the team to foster sound engineering principles and represent our engineering values
  • As a senior member of the team, you'll use both technical and relational skills to lead large scale projects to completion.
  • You'll provide additional support for other cloud technologies (eg: OpenStack).
  • Take part in a 24x7 on-call rotation.
You are an ideal candidate if you:
  • You enjoy mentoring and coaching other specialists, and leading large technical projects
  • You can do both sides of DevOps: troubleshoot, write and review code in various object oriented languages, but also know your way around a Linux server or a SQL database.
  • You come with prior experience in public cloud (AWS, GCP or others), automation tools such as Ansible and Terraform as well as container technologies (Docker, Kubernetes or similar)
  • You can take on complex technical issues, and design robust, scalable systems.

Keywords: Site Reliability Engineering, DevOps, System Administration, Software Engineering, containerization, container orchestration, Kubernetes, docker, mesos

An Insider's view of Cisco Meraki

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.
