Cisco Meraki – SAN FRANCISCO, CA, United States - Published On 2/8/18

Description

Cisco Meraki
San Francisco

Cisco Meraki produces some of the most popular gear in the world, with millions of cloud-managed access points, switches, security appliances, phones, and cameras distributed across the world. Backed by Dashboard, the web app and cloud service supporting our devices, Meraki allows our customers to focus on their mission instead of spending time setting up infrastructure.

Meraki is able to provide easy-to-use, enterprise-grade devices because we control the entire stack—from the Dashboard UI and backend down to the device firmware itself. This flexibility also allows us to provide our customers useful insights into their deployment, including how the prevalence of a particular security threat, the number of unique wireless devices present in the last week, and the most popular operating systems used on their network.

Because of Meraki's popularity and visibility, security is of paramount importance to us. As a senior engineer on the Security team, you will play an essential role in protecting Meraki’s customers, products, and infrastructure from adversaries. You will act as a guardian of our customers’ networks by securing the Meraki cloud infrastructure. You will build new security features and automated tools and find, triage, and fix vulnerabilities. You will advocate process improvements towards improving security, while balancing these changes with business needs. You will be a strong advocate for security and consult with other software teams on their security posture. Finally, you will get to have direct, immediate, and significant impact on our customers and the hundreds of millions of users that rely on Meraki every single day.

Discovering and fixing vulnerabilities via code audits, fuzzing, and static analysis
Working with and supporting the backend and UI teams to fix vulnerabilities found internally and by researchers through our bug bounty program
Designing and building secure systems to handle application secrets such as encryption keys

Re-architecting our core infrastructure to reduce the attack surface of critical services and mitigate the impact of exploits
