Consulting Systems Engineer – Service Provider, Japan
Are you looking for an inspiring and positive company? Are you wanting to work with smart, creative and collaborative colleagues? At Cisco Meraki, we’re on track to be the most successful acquisition in Cisco’s history (and certainly the most fun).

What do we do? We craft 100% cloud managed IT that simply works.

Founded in 2006, Cisco Meraki has grown to become an industry leader in the IT space, with over 250,000 customers and one and a half million active networks and counting around the world. We have a comprehensive set of solutions which allows customers to seize new business opportunities and reduce operational costs. Meraki is known for simplifying powerful technology through our products and services - and for the people behind them. As the fastest growing cloud-managed networking team in the world, our products and technology architecture are changing the face of enterprise networking and making cloud-managed IT a reality.

As a Consulting Systems Engineer, you will be revolutionizing the networking industry by advocating for a disruptive technology that is leading the way.  Quickly becoming known as the most successful acquisition in Cisco's history, Meraki’s cloud-based dashboard is being adopted and sold by some of the world’s largest service providers.

We are looking for a highly-motivated, technically-savvy and passionate individual to become the next rising star on our Service Provider (SP) team.  In this role, your primary responsibility will be to team up with a high-performing Strategic Sales Manager to carry out technical pre-sales activities for sell-to and sell-through SP opportunities.  Service Provider is a relatively new and fast-growing space for Meraki where you will play an integral role in closing the largest deals within the business.

You will be the Meraki technology expert on these deals; architecting managed WiFi, switching and security offerings for SPs to sell to their customers.  This role is unique in that you will be hands on throughout the process as you put your designs and our products to the test.  Part of your role will also include technical enablement of your customer’s sales, operations, and marketing teams.

We require that you have 3-5 years of direct customer-facing experience in the service provider industry.  This role generally works remotely, and travels up to 50% to customer sites and regional corporate offices.  Sound exciting?  Read on for technical requirements.
