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.

As the lead of our wireless protocols software team, this person will build groundbreaking networking software, with a wide range of advanced features, that will make a huge impact on the wireless industry. This individual will lead a team of 6-7 engineers, providing them technical mentorship as well as planning the team’s roadmap. This person's purpose is build and support wireless technologies (Wi-Fi 6/6E, BLE, ZigBee) and networking features that enable a best-in-class wireless experience on Meraki wireless access points.

A Manager of Wireless Software will:

  • Collaborate with Product Management and Hardware Engineering teams on wireless software roadmap definition and influence high-level architecture for new Meraki products
  • Collaborate with other teams at Cisco on integrating networking features such as IPv6, DNS-based security using Umbrella, and Network Based Application Recognition(NBAR) on Meraki products
  • Champion design, implementation and integration of next-generation wireless/IOT technologies including Wi-Fi 6E, ZigBee and Openthread
  • Plan and track wireless software feature roadmap, updating the rest of the team on schedule changes
  • Mentor junior engineers and encourage the professional growth of everyone on the team
  • Identify gaps in the team’s knowledge or ability to execute, and work with recruiters to build out the team
  • Collaborate with the leadership of the larger MR team: weighing in on development priorities, projects going on across the team, etc.
An ideal candidate is:
  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field
  • 2+ years of leadership experience on projects involving meaningful planning and coordination
  • 5+ years of software development experience using C/C++
  • 5+ years of strong hands-on experience in one or more wireless technologies (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee) and the TCP/IP suite of protocols
  • A strong understanding of operating systems and multi-threaded programming
Bonus points for:
  • Knowledge of Linux internals and Yocto
  • Knowledge of web technologies: databases, high-level languages (Python, Ruby, JavaScript), and frameworks (Rails, React)
  • Contributions to IEEE 802.11/Wi-Fi Alliance/Bluetooth SIG wireless standardization initiatives
  • Experience managing agile projects and using agile methodologies such as scrum and/or kanban
