Firmware Features Software Engineer, Early Career (Meraki)

Company: Cisco
Location: Nampa
Posted on: June 24, 2022

Job Description:

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.

As a Firmware Features Software Engineer at Meraki, you will be responsible for developing and implementing features that improve the reliability, simplicity, and performance of our products. Our Firmware Features teams are focused on improving our existing networking technology and enabling customers to deploy our products in new and innovative ways. You will have the opportunity to work across the stack collaborating with other developers, UX designers, and product management to develop software that spans from device drivers and routing code all the way up to our distributed, cloud-hosted backend. Our projects are driven by technological innovation and developer creativity in addition to market demands, giving you the structure and freedom to pursue projects you are most passionate about. 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 Firmware Features Software Engineer:**

- SD-WAN Multi-Path: Leverages multiple internet uplinks together with load balancing, high availability, and performance-based routing techniques to afford higher bandwidth, less downtime, and better QoS for VoIP calls

- Stackable switches: This auto-configured distributed system of two or more L2 & L3 switches allows load-balancing of traffic to achieve high performance throughput, as well as link redundancy for minimizing network downtime upon device failure
- Motion search: This security camera feature enables users to retroactively search video by region of interest in recorded footage. Cameras process every frame of video at the edge, extract and encode motion metadata, and supply the data to a backend search engine

**You are an outstanding applicant if:**

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

- You are proficient with C/C++ programming languages and demonstrate working knowledge with pointers, memory allocation, and bit shifting
- You have past project or internship experience working with embedded firmware development and/or Linux
- You have familiarity with computer networking fundamentals (TCP/IP, etc.)
- 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
