What we're looking for

Lead Product Designers help envision and create outstanding experiences, while leading and mentoring other designers. Youll envision experiences for configuring, monitoring, and capturing insights from smart spaces and intelligent IoT platforms. Collaborating closely with cross-functional partners, youll balance a strategic approach with lean design execution. Youll get to understand the complex needs of target audiences, help to set the vision for products grounded in those needs, and partner with cross-functional teams to build iteratively.

Our team's primary focus is on software, but we also find opportunities to collaborate with teams across the organization to improve the end-to-end customer journey. Meraki believes the quality of our products is dependent on the quality of our teams. We place a high value on nurturing the growth and development of everyone on our team. On the Design Team, we give and get feedback early and often, share what we know, and learn from each other.


  • Guide the design of large, complex projects or initiatives that span products.
  • Partner with Product Managers and Engineers to find opportunities, explore solutions, and take concepts from ideation to execution.
  • Translate what may start as ambiguous business needs into clear customer-focused solutions and frameworks.
  • Ensure a holistic, strategic, detailed approach to design in your product area.
  • Build effective working relationships and bring the wider team into the design process.
  • Craft stories and prototypes that help others envision and rally around your designs.
  • Provide constructive feedback and direction to other designers.
  • Facilitate workshops, sketch and prototype solutions, and create high-fidelity designs.
  • Advocate for design-centered product enhancements grounded in research and analysis.

You are an ideal candidate if you have:

  • 10+ years of professional experience designing and delivering products in cross-functional teams from start to finish.
  • Experience designing experiences around IoT devices, cameras, or sensors.
  • Love for making complex problems and workflows feel simple and approachable.
  • Ability to balance working strategically with shipping often.
  • Ability to persuasively tell the story of a project and its underlying design rationale.

Picture a beautiful office, balanced catered meals, fully stocked kitchens, an onsite gym, and paid time off to volunteer. Cisco Meraki has crafted an amazing equal opportunity focused office where employees thrive. We are confident you will love it here.

We encourage you to drop us a line even if you dont have all the points above. Thats a lot of different areas of responsibility! We will help you pick them up because we believe that great UXers come from a diverse set of backgrounds.

Please include a link to your online portfolio. Only those applications that include portfolios will be considered.
