The modern world runs on the Internet, and the Internet cannot exist without its underlying infrastructure. Meraki makes setting up, managing, and maintaining that infrastructure easier than it has ever been before. Meraki enables connectivity everywhere from neighborhood cafes to education institutions to global hospitality groups operating thousands of sites.

The Security Features team is responsible for turning state-of-the-art network security concepts into intuitive, easy-to-use, customer-facing features helping small businesses, schools, and large corporations protect themselves in an ever-evolving security landscape. As a Security Features Software Engineer at Meraki, you will play an essential role in helping Meraki customers diagnose, remediate, and altogether prevent attacks from occurring on their networks. You will have the opportunity to work in any part of the Meraki stack collaborating with other developers, UX designers, and product management. Together, we can stay ahead of threats and help customers best protect their devices. Meraki engineers put the customer experience first, own projects from beginning to end, and are empowered to make impactful decisions.

Meraki believes that the quality of our product is dependent on the quality of our engineers. We place a high value on nurturing the growth and development of everyone on our team. We foster an open and supportive workplace where everybody is given the opportunity to succeed.

Example projects of a Security Features Software Engineering Intern:

  • Diagnose and resolve performance bottlenecks in our intrusion prevention system

  • Implement new file identification and malware scanning techniques

  • Improve backend infrastructure to handle millions of security events

  • Design new user interfaces to help customers identify individual intrusions and ongoing trends

You are an outstanding applicant if:

  • You are pursuing a technical degree or have equivalent experience with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of computer science

  • You have familiarity in either object-oriented languages like C++, Java, or C# or familiarity in a web framework like Ruby (Rails, EventMachine), Python (Django, Flask), or Node.js (Express)

  • You're interested in security concepts such as cryptography, authentication, authorization, or security protocols

  • You have understanding of common protocols in OSI layers 3 through 7 (IPv4/6, IPSec, TCP/UDP, DNS, HTTP, TLS)

  • You strive to build rich and dynamic features by expanding current tools or by creating entirely new components

  • You can expertly work beyond the boundary of single languages or technologies to identify complex bugs

  • You would flourish within a small engineering team and are excited to tackle open-ended problems

Intern/Co-Op Program Overview:

Meraki interns and co-ops join the team for 12 and 16 week programs, respectively, and are placed directly onto subteams. During the program, interns/co-ops have the opportunity to work on a small starter project, such as integration and implementation of new tools, before spending the majority of the program on a larger project, such as building the infrastructure for a new service. Projects are cross functional, which allow insight into new languages and technologies, help encourage professional growth within engineering, and allow a sense of ownership within the team.

Meraki's engineering teams place a high emphasis on mentorship. Each intern and co-op is matched 1:1 with a mentor who provides continual feedback and guidance throughout the duration of the program. Mentors help with introductions to other team members, overviews of tools and processes, and provide a seamless integration into Meraki life.

Intern/Co-Op Benefits:

  • Furnished housing in San Francisco for duration of program

  • Competitive salary

  • Weekly social events inside and outside of the office (Giants games, Exploratorium tickets, friendly soccer games)

  • Lunch and dinner daily

  • Customized laptop and desk setups

  • Medical, dental, and vision coverage plans
