Meraki Go is taking what Meraki does best and reinventing it for small independent businesses. We're applying a modern mobile app management approach to WiFi, Switching and Network Security. We're building tools and insight that help small businesses in their digital transformation journeys. The global market for small business networking is huge, with an annual spend of over $5B. By focusing on the customer and further simplifying the complexity of networking, we are building a product customers will love.
Day-to-day, you will be responsible for various activities, from funneling customer feedback into product design documents and collaborating with engineering on the resulting features, to investigating bugs and working with our global silicon vendors on solutions.
The product management team is comprised of individuals with a broad and diverse skill set. This is essential, as in this role you will be working with every department at Meraki. Your ability to tailor a complex technical message to a diverse audience will be critical. In one day you could be talking to hardware engineers, UX designers, lawyers, and sales people.
With speed and agility being important attributes of Meraki, teams are small with individuals capable of outsized impact. What you do matters, and with your team consisting of just a handful of people, you will see the outcome of your actions every day.
