The Pricing & Promotions Manager will lead a small team responsible for developing and driving Meraki’s approach to pricing & promotions globally. From a pricing perspective, this will involve facilitating competitive pricing assessments, price elasticity experiments, discount tracking and a variety of other metrics that would enable strategic decision making across the organization. This body of work will inextricably be tied to the work around promotions, which will require adopting a portfolio optimization mindset when it comes to the selection & continuous evaluation of promotions the team launches.

As leader of this team, the Manager will drive a culture of strong problem solving, coach a team of high achievers to hone their analytical skills, work closely with senior leadership to identify and assess key product challenges and strategically recommend pricing action where appropriate to address them. This team will collaborate closely with our Marketing, Channels, Sales, Finance, Business Operations and equivalent Cisco Strategy function(s) to drive a standardized approach to Pricing & Promotions across the organization. 

In addition to leading the team, the Manager will also work closely with cross-functional leaders in the organization to secure alignment on our Pricing & Promotions Strategy and also work with key Cisco leaders to ensure Meraki is embedded into broader Promotional efforts.

  • Build trusted relationships with Regional Sales & Business Unit Leaders in order to drive adoption of our Strategy around pricing & promotions
  • Ensure close collaboration with key Meraki functions to streamline execution and management of promotions
  • Coach the team team to drive best practice execution across problem solving & structuring, analysis, communications, and project management
  • Imbue the team with a data-driven approach to pricing & promotions

You are:

  • A data-driven individual, able to reconcile and make sense of data from multiple sources
  • Extremely detail oriented

  • Positive and have a can-do attitude and a sense of humor
  • Able to prioritize and accurately manage multiple projects with a high degree of organization
  • Resilient, optimistic, and passionate about our business results while never compromising team relationship 

What we’re looking for in you:
