As a Senior Application Security Engineer at Meraki, you will be a key member of a team that prevents, finds, and fixes vulnerabilities in our products, services, and enterprise. You will partner with teams across the organization to perform architecture reviews, code security reviews, and promote secure development practices. You will seek out opportunities to build security into development pipelines and collect the data you need to understand the security posture of our systems.

Meraki Security Engineers affect change across the entire stack, from the UI and backend to the device firmware. By acting as a guardian of our customers’ networks and deployments, you will have a direct, immediate, and significant impact on our customers and the hundreds of millions of users who rely on Meraki access points, switches, security appliances, cameras, and mobile device management solutions every single day.

At Meraki, we are passionate about building real products that our customers love! We believe in encouraging a positive environment by hiring, mentoring, and empowering inquisitive, effective, low ego people and providing equal opportunities for all employees to thrive.

Example projects for a Security Engineer:

  • Drive strategy for the security review function.
  • Design and implement solutions for integrating security services into our CI/CD pipelines, ensuring seamless and automated security checks throughout the development process.

  • Collaborate closely with engineers and leaders to prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities, providing guidance and recommendations for swift and effective resolution.
  • Partner with software engineers across product teams to enhance the security posture of our cloud technologies, refining deployment practices to establish and maintain robust security standards.

You are an ideal candidate if you:

  • Can read and write code in Ruby or Python and enjoy learning new programming languages
  • Thrive in finding and helping address security problems such as authentication, authorization and cryptography
  • Feel comfortable using Linux
  • Experience with enterprise cloud solutions and serverless applications
  • A BS/MS/Ph.D in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Security, Security Engineering, or a STEM field

Message to applicants applying to work in the U.S. and/or Canada:

When available, the salary range posted for this position reflects the projected hiring range for new hire, full-time salaries in U.S. and/or Canada locations, not including equity or benefits. For non-sales roles the hiring ranges reflect base salary only; employees are also eligible to receive annual bonuses. Hiring ranges for sales positions include base and incentive compensation target. Individual pay is determined by the candidate's hiring location and additional factors, including but not limited to skillset, experience, and relevant education, certifications, or training. Applicants may not be eligible for the full salary range based on their U.S. or Canada hiring location. The recruiter can share more details about compensation for the role in your location during the hiring process.

U.S. employees have access to quality medical, dental and vision insurance, a 401(k) plan with a Cisco matching contribution, short and long-term disability coverage, basic life insurance and numerous wellbeing offerings. Employees receive up to twelve paid holidays per calendar year, which includes one floating holiday, plus a day off for their birthday. Employees accrue up to 20 days of Paid Time Off (PTO) each year and have access to paid time away to deal with critical or emergency issues without tapping into their PTO. We offer additional paid time to volunteer and give back to the community. Employees are also able to purchase company stock through our Employee Stock Purchase Program.

Employees on sales plans earn performance-based incentive pay on top of their base salary, which is split between quota and non-quota components. For quota-based incentive pay, Cisco typically pays as follows:

.75% of incentive target for each 1% of revenue attainment up to 50% of quota;

1.5% of incentive target for each 1% of attainment between 50% and 75%;

1% of incentive target for each 1% of attainment between 75% and 100%; and once performance exceeds 100% attainment, incentive rates are at or above 1% for each 1% of attainment with no cap on incentive compensation.

For non-quota-based sales performance elements such as strategic sales objectives, Cisco may pay up to 125% of target. Cisco sales plans do not have a minimum threshold of performance for sales incentive compensation to be paid.
