Winter Internship (January – April 2022, full-time work schedule, Monday – Friday 40 hours per week)
Cisco Meraki Business Unit
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 Full Stack Engineer at Meraki, you will help craft and build features for Meraki’s Dashboard – the window to the entire Meraki experience. From Dashboard, our customers can control their entire Meraki stack: access points, switches, firewalls, client devices, cameras, and more. You will work across the stack with other developers, UX designers, and product management to build and improve the Dashboard web application. 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 Full Stack Web Developer Intern:
- Create services to fetch data from millions of Meraki devices, then present that data in a user-friendly way
- Improve performance and efficiency of our backend, allowing us to handle increasingly large datasets with minimal delay
- Build internal frameworks and refine front end infrastructure to augment developer productivity
- Construct API endpoints to allow Meraki users and third party companies to build custom tools and features
- Build a dashboard for anomaly / outlier detection on network traffic using machine learning algorithms
- Build a graph for network traffic analysis using clustering and other algorithms
You are an outstanding applicant if:
- You are pursuing a technical bachelors degree or have equivalent experience with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of computer science
- You strive to build rich and dynamic web applications with front-end frameworks such as React, Redux, Ember, or Angular
- You are familiar with programming languages and web frameworks like Ruby (Rails, EventMachine), Python (Django, Flask), or Node.js (Express)
- You have worked with SQL and relational Databases
- You would flourish within a small engineering team and are excited to tackle open-ended problems
Intern Program Overview:
Meraki interns and co-ops join the team for 12 and 16 week programs, respectively, and are placed directly onto subteams. During the program, interns/co-ops have the opportunity to work on a small starter project, such as integration and implementation of new tools, before spending the majority of the program on a larger project, such as building the infrastructure for a new service. Projects are cross functional, which allow insight into new languages and technologies, help encourage professional growth within engineering, and allow a sense of ownership within the team.
Meraki’s engineering teams place a high emphasis on mentorship. Each intern and co-op is matched 1:1 with a mentor who provides continual feedback and guidance throughout the duration of the program. Mentors help with introductions to other team members, overviews of tools and processes, and provide a seamless integration into Meraki life.
