Product Manager - New Products


You will lead and build a small, highly talented team. You have unlimited funding. You have a global brand and 25,000 sales people. And you have a launch date. What do you do now?


This is a unique opportunity to develop a new product family where you enjoy the benefit of Merakis agile startup culture, while gaining the scale and resources of a global corporation such as Cisco. In this role, you will be responsible for bringing a simple concept or early prototype to market as a complete product family. You will protect the idea of a Minimally Viable Product (MVP), while executing with the hunger of a small company seeking their next round of funding.


By using many market-leading technologies and infrastructure components already in use at Meraki, you will have the opportunity to create at a scale that would be impossible on your own. All of this is possible because you will be working with a diverse and incredibly talented collection of people. From developers to marketeers, sales people to executives, you will influence, motivate, and direct a wide variety of resources to achieve the collective goal. 


WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING:


  • Becoming an industry expert in your field.

  • Taking a product concept from nothing to something.

  • Shipping the first MVP within 12 months of joining.

  • Defining, owning, and executing a 3 year roadmap for your product family.

  • Ultimate responsibility for everything related to your product family.

  • You will be involved in everything. Your mission is to work out what will make the difference at any given time, and focusing on positively impacting that outcome when there isnt time to do everything.

  • Working with every department at the company.

  • Spending up to 20% of your time traveling to see customers and industry events.


WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:


  • An entrepreneur, a risk taker, someone who looks beyond tomorrow.

  • A leader with exceptional interpersonal skills capable of motivating a diverse team.

  • Someone with a curious nature with a love of new and emerging technologies.

  • Customer empathy, but with the critical thinking needed to ask the challenging questions.

  • An abstract thinker who can spot the patterns of high value customer problems.

  • Being able to distill complicated ideas into just the right number of words.

  • A story teller, a natural passion for the product, a sales person in disguise.

  • MVP execution. It doesnt matter how good a product is if it doesnt ship.

  • Experience in a customer-centric, cross-functional role such as product management, consulting systems engineer, technical marketing engineer, or founder.


Bonus Points:

  • Experience as a developer / network engineer.
