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.
As the head of the Camera Frontend team, you will lead our efforts to deliver an outstanding experience for the users who depend on our product every day for safety, security, and business intelligence. Alongside your own small team of 3-4 creative and hardworking engineers, you'll partner with product managers, UX designers, and the rest of the software engineering organization to solve complex problems, harnessing a powerful technology platform to connect users to the footage and answers they're looking for. You will also be growing the team, retaining talent, providing technical direction and career development opportunities, and nurturing the team's core values of quality, teamwork, and inclusiveness.
At your disposal will be a full suite of cameras, equipped with powerful (and ethical) computer vision technology based on machine learning, with a passionate, supportive, personal-growth oriented team by your side.
We can’t wait to see where your imagination will take you.

- Guide and enable your team to build a codebase that we can support, and carry forward for many years - systems and designs that last
- Write performance evaluations and encourage the professional growth of everyone on your team
- Identify gaps in your team’s knowledge or ability to execute, and work with our recruiters to build out your team
- Be a part of the leadership of the larger MV team: weighing in on development priorities, projects going on across the team, etc.
